    What is the true patriotism?

    Some people says to serve country people is patriotism. Some people consider to die for country is true patriotism. What is it actually?

    Dying for a country comes in times of war. With wars not so frequent nowadays, contributing something for the nation either by serving people or at least  working within the country and contributing for its economy itself will be sign of patriotism.

    - having a basic love for your mother country
    - having some amount of pride in its civilization, culture, religious and spiritual greatness
    - accepting the weaknesses within the country (corruption, reservation, uncleanliness, power cuts etc) and not running away from the country to work abroad
    - not hankering over green card and duel citizenship etc
    - not blindly mimicking the western culture
    - not admiring people who earn in dollars
    - contributing anything, even minimal to preserve the country's culture, heritage, people's wellness etc
    - contributing financially or physically in times of national calamities (floods, draught etc)

    All these too are show of patriotism according to me.

    Fighting and giving of one's life for their country is the true act of patriotism.

    Etymologically it refers to devotion to a patriarch--patriotism. It's sort of an outdated term in today's world of commercial republics and democracies. But true patriotism means personal devotion to an single chieftain or monarch; not necessarily to a nation. Devotion to one's nation-state is called nationalism. True nationalism means supporting the nation regardless of what road its people or government leads it down. In wartime, a nationalist serves in the war or supports it. In peacetime, a nationalist hopes to improve the nation's institutions. But just as the patriot never turns against the monarch, the nationalist never turns against the nation state.

    Dying for your country, if it's needed, is just another act.  It's a more heroic act and any person who does it should have a place in the country history, but I don't think it makes you any more patriot than those who did not die for it, but loved it, fought for it, took a stand, respect it, worked in it, contributed to make it better and tried to improve it.
