अपि स्वर्णमयी लङ्का न मे लक्ष्मण रोचते
जननी जन्मभूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरीयसी
(“Lakshmana, even this golden Lanka does not appeal to me, mother and motherland are greater than heaven.”)
This is said to have been told by Rama to Lakshmana in Valmiki Ramayana.

Dear youth you are going to be the policy makers of this nation in the coming years…!
Our motherland is a supremely sacred country. You are growing up devoid of any knowledge of this great nation’s moral values and its heritage. Intellectuals and the media that ceaselessly lecture on the erosion of Values have so far failed to clearly define what this value is. You live in a desperate world of disintegrating family ties, political overkill, religious fanaticism and drugs. At this junction , it is our motherland’s great heritage that alone can give you a mooring in life, among all these frighteningly chaotic elements.
