    1. Thank you dear for loving my country. You can love India even from afar, you can love it even if you have it in your heart and not in your blood. And if you feel so, then sure look into your lineage to find out. I too hope we can preserve India’s values and culture, westernisation is sure working its way, but still, we are taking all measures to stay original. Jai Ho ! 🇮🇳
