    Write a summary of the following passage (Max 5 -6 sentences ).

    Patriotism is a very noble virtue. It inspires a man to do everything just and fair for the well-being and betterment of the country. It is the quality that impels a man to sacrifice his own interest, comfort, pleasure and even his life for the sake of his country. Patriotic zeal makes a man dutiful, energetic. He obeys the lows, pays taxes and things for the country. Patriotism teaches a man feeling, fraternity and love and sympathy for the countrymen. A patriot is also praised and honored by this countrymen. An unpatriotic man, on the other hand, is an ignoble person. He is self – centered. He engages all his time in achieving his mean end. He causes harm to the country by his unyielding and reckless activities. He is an enemy to the liberty and sovereignty of the country. He gets his return in the same way. He may have high titles, immense wealth, high social prestige and noble birth. But despite his worldly achievements, he remains a worthless person. His power and pelf fail to bring him any glory. Because, during his life time such a man is never honoured by anybody . Rather hi is despised because of his perfidy. No minstrel ever sings for him. Such a man died a double death. During his life time, he possesses a dead soul and he remains completely forgotten by the people. This is his first death. Then comes his natural demise. After expiring, his body mixed with the vile dust from which it sprang. Nobody remembers him or shows any honour to him. Nobody sheds tears for him. He sinks into oblivion.
