Simple Test - Nationalism

I am inspired by a scene in the movie 'Selma' where the white official asks Oprah Winfrey, who goes to him to register for voting rights certain questions (before denying it). I thought we should also ask some basic questions to check where we stand.

Level 1
1) Sing the national anthem 'Jana Gana Mana' (if possible explain what it means)

2) Sing the national song 'Vande Mataram' (same as above)

3) Recite the Pledge (as above)

4) What's the difference between Independence Day and the Republic Day?

Level 2
5) Explain what the Consitution of India is to an Indian in two lines.

6) What does the preamble of the Constitution say?

7) Explain what the following words mean - sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic, republic, justice, liberty, equality and fraternity,

8) What are the fundamental rights that the Constitution grants every citizen?

A couple more questions should round it off for this weekend.
