A Lecture and a Stimulating Quiz
Thane (Maharashtra): Sanatan Sanstha organised a lecture on ‘Protection of the Nation’ and quiz program for the students of 7th to 10th standards at Shrirang Vidyalaya in Thane. About 400 students took part in the same. There were feedbacks received from the students that now they know about how to avoid denigration of the National Flag, importance of chanting the Kuldevata (family deity)’s name. They assured that they would not use plastic flags and would even stop shopkeepers from selling such plastic flags.
Mr. Nitin Chavan: This program is helpful to awaken respect among students towards the Nation. The efforts of the organisation to inculcate moral values in students are truly commendable.
Mrs. Snehal Prabhune: We have learnt about how to pay respect to the National Flag and also of the need to train oneself in self- defence in the present times.
HJS also submitted a representation for the prevention of denigration of the National Flag to the Tehsildar at Yeotmal and Assistant Police Inspector Mr. Mainkar at Savda (Dist. Jalgaon).

Respect national flag
With a sense of national pride, people enthusiastically buy such flags but the very next day, we find these flags being trampled upon the road, in dustbins and elsewhere.There is a new trend of selling flags made up of paper and plastic, which is incorrect.
