It was one of the aspirations of Sadguru Shastriji Maharaj Shree Dharmajivandasji Swami to implement the patriotism along with the moral values of Indian culture in new generations. This objective has been materialized at remarkable extent as some of the alumni are serving in Indian army with medals of bravery. In the same tradition just to spread the nationalism in all branches, Gurukul celebrates national festivals with great enthusiasm. In the morning of 57th Republic Day, all Gurukuls celebrated this event with a march past and drumbeats along with presentation of various patriotic programmes under the tricolour flag.
