Patriotism for 5 minutes

I just watched movie "Rang De Basanti". And just thought that it will be great if I get chance to burn my life for my county. I am ready to sacrifice my life for country. But will that really help my country. I remember song from "The legend of Bhagat Singh". Which actually poem by Ram Prasad Bismil, the great Indian Independence leader.

Khushboo Banke Mehka Karenge Hum Lelahti Har Faslo Mein
Saas Ban Ke Hum Gun Gunayenge Aane Wali Har Naslo Mein Hum
Khushboo Banke Mehka Karenge Hum Lelahti Har Faslo Mein
Saas Ban Ke Hum Gun Gunayenge Aane Wali Har Naslo Mein Hum
Aane Wali Aane Wali Naslo Mein Hum
Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna Ab Hamare Dil Mein Hai
Dehkna Hai Zor Kitna Baajuen Qaatil Mein Hai
Waqt Aane Pe Bata Denge Tujhe Hai Aasmaan
Kya Baatein Hum Junoonein Shok Kis Manzil Mein Hai
And
From "Rang De Basanti":
hai liye hathiyaar dushman taak mein baitha udhar
aur hum taiyyaar hain seena liye apna idhar
khoon se khelenge holi gar vatan muskhil mein hai
sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai

I really feel the same. Lets my blood will become color of Pride. Lets clear the bad system, politics, corruption from India.
Or
Living everyday for vision of my mother land... "Bharat Mata" !!!!

I have seen my friends discussing after watching movie with excitement. Everyone is agree with need of scarification, change, revolution. But after few days, memory of movie get fade away and also requirement of scarification, change, revolution. Then same old life with zero Patriotism, no need of scarification. How to change all this ? From where to start ? I don't want to just talk about current scandals or allegations about CWG, Adarsh Society, 2G spectrum. I have seen political people coming back into political life after punishment. The reason for resignation may be anything. People may forget everything be it 26/11 or anything. We just forget. People wont remember anything. They don't remember scarification of Shivaji Maharaj, Maharana Pratap, Tilak, Savarkar, Bhagat Sing, Subhash Chandra Bose. At the end of movie of "Rang De Basanti" few boys shout on TV camera "We wont forget this", "Thanks for igniting us". With movie its ok to watch it forget it. But is it ok for real life ? real issues ? Do we remember 14 August 1947 ?? What is great about 14 August ? I must have to type 15 August ..... ! No. I want to say something about 14 August. On 14 August 1947 Pakistan gains Independence. No. On 14 August India get divided get partitioned. After that so many time our India get divided, partitioned. And that was not last partition. We had lost land at Kashmir, Tibet, various small Islands, 64K km area of Arunachal Pradesh. And thousands of time by our Politician. Do we remember anything ? Do we know anything ? What is happening at North East India. How Jammu & Kashmir are burning every day ? Why they are burning ? Why Religious demographics of every state, in India changing so rapidly ?  Why Bangladeshi are free to enter in India ? Why India with 70% population earns 20/- Rs per day ? Why less literacy, poor education, poor health facility ? Why there is so much corruption ? Why "anna data" farmer ends there life ? Why Farmers' suicides news is no more important news in India ? Why anyone can spit on road ? Why Marathi people having problem from Bihari people ? Why some one beat some one just because of Religion, Cast, Language, Statehood ?
Because we are 5 minutes Indian. Because we love our nation, our mother land only for 5 minutes. That only on 15 August, 26 January, while sining national anthem or Pledge, after some incidence like 26/11, India wins against Pakistan, at end of movies like Rang De Basanti, The legend of Bhagat Singh, Swadesh, Nayak. We are Patriotic only for 5 minutes. Our Patriotism last for only 5 minutes. Lets change this. We must develop Patriotism in every Indians heart. Lets become true Indian for 24X7X365. For every hour and every minute. Please suggest me such ways ? Books ? Movies ? Activities ? I want to live every second with full of Patriotism.
