How to instil values of nationalism among the youth
The real heroes are the armed forces, paramilitary forces and all those who serve the nation.
In a culture where one beats a villain and becomes a hero, patriotic feeling is not brought out and the real heroes are becoming insignificant. We need bigger involvement of youngsters in CRPF. The first step to come out of this culture is through awareness and then through interaction with them and their environment.
Counting movements in CRPF
Wherever we live, we live as a family.
CRPF is a force that is always on the move. They move across the country on an ad hoc need basis ensuring peace across the nation. They come across various troubles and personal problems during the move, yet continue to keep patient to protect the citizens. Despite the pandemic attack, they are the vanguards on the run to hotspots.

Brain drain and patriotic attitude
The development of self with the nation has to be emphasized.
Brain drain is not adverse because they represent the nation. There are people who promote India outside. It is every citizen’s responsibility to give back to the nation and the responsibility of the educational institutions to make students aware not only about their rights but also their duties and responsibilities. We design our own freedom and discipline.
