Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla

A Living Light and An Epitome of Patriotism

Preaching Patriotism and Remembering Martyrs.

Patriotism resonates with waving of flags, marches, stirring anthems and loyalty. However, is it all? The answer lies not in blind allegiance, but in a profound connection – a love for the land that nurtured us, the ideals that shaped us, and the people who share our story.  Patriotism is the recognition that we are part of something bigger than ourselves, a tapestry woven from countless threads of experience and identity.

Patriotism is not about the display of nationalism or trying to project one country and its people as superior to another. Patriotism is rather a gentle feeling of pride in contributing to the overall well-being of the global human family. This is the spirit that has embodied India since eons. Be it art, architecture, literature, science or anything else, India has contributed positively and is still the oldest living civilization.

Being a universal humanist and a “son of the soil”, a man of values and principles who did not think twice about leaving foreign lands, a lucrative service and rich accolades as a recognized medical professional, Dr. Ramesh Nath Lingutla is the perfect epitome of patriotism.

It is the spirit and it its dignified expression that is important and who is better in embodying the same other than Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla who has seen the best of all worlds – the east and the west!

A Doting Grandparent

It is said that values start at home and as a doting grandparent, Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla has been instrumental in motivating his grandchildren regarding the richness, beauty, unity and diversity of India and in creating a sense of pride and values in them. Celebrations were organized at home and the entire family partook in the same with real fervour to match the momentous occasion of Indian Independence day and Republic day celebrations.

Contributions During the Aazadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav Function

A few weeks before the 75th Indian Independence day celebrations, an idea sprung up in Dr.Ramesh Ntah Lingutla that he should sponsor and organize a patriotic song capturing the unity and diversity of the great country India.

As a multi-faceted and multi-talented individual, Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla also penned the lyrics to the song. It was dedicated to his late parents and produced by his wife and children. His grandchildren also actively participated, and he was able to sow the powerful seeds of patriotism all round – in family, the immediate neighbourhood and general society. Many recognized and awarded stakeholders from the music, video and entertainment industry participated in creating the song and disseminating the same.

Patriotic Song

The song “Bharathamatha”

The song “Bharathamatha” It reflects the respect for the nation, how many have sacrificed their lives without any second thought for the sake of achieving India’s independence from the foreign yoke. Our duty does not end with simply raising and saluting the Indian flag, but in remembering the bravery of the martyrs and how they continue to live in our heart. When they have done so much, our duty is to create a new era of equality based on the strong foundation of values, mutual respect, prosperity, selflessness, unity and diversity. The concept of inclusiveness and diversity may be jargons in the corporate sphere, but India has been reflecting the plurality and progress since ages long gone by! Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla urges all people to take an oath and work for the country and create this new era where the hoisted Indian flag can fly even higher. One should never forget the sacrifices of martyrs nor take the independence gained for granted. One should draw inspiration from their lives, take responsibility and push oneself to achieve more and help the country climb higher.

By the time the function started, all galleries were full and the crowd of over 25,000 people was brimming with enthusiasm, patriotism and festive spirit.

The relations and commonalities between India and the USA were highlighted in detail like being vibrant democracies and multi-cultural countries and how they were best fit and natural partners.

The Bhavad Gita, the Vedas, Sita, the crown jewel of women, were all born here, and the way India has enriched humanity is beyond doubt.

Felicitation and Recognition at a Global Level

A global ambassador of goodwill and peace, his many facets have already been described in previous blogs. Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla is a man who believes in a the universal brotherhood of man, that we should transcend all artificial barriers and work to create a holistic global society based on the timeless values of peace and prosperity for all.

A true patriot, he ensures that as a just ambassador of his country and particularly as a son of the soil tracing his roots to the Telugu language, he gives full efforts to spread the spirit of the language and the glory of the country and her traditions and values in all nooks and corners of the world.

True to his mission, felicitations and recognitions have been pouring in from all parts of the globe.

In a function organized by the North American Telugu Association (NATA), in 2016 in Dallas USA, the founders of NATA were generous in their praise and recognition. It was a rare moment where multiple stakeholders and high-achievers shared the dais and everyone recognized and deeply appreciated the vision and service-mindedness of Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla. Felicitated at NATA

Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the Telugu Association of North America (TANA), the 21th Conference of TANA was held at St.Louis, Missouri where  Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla was felicitated as among the top 3 of the Chitoor NRIs. Felicitated By TANA

The Malaysian Telugu Association has also celebrated Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla as a man of powerful achievements and recognized his contributions and timeless service.

In every NRI meet of a felicitation function, Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla’s message has been singular and powerful that though we have different associations engaged in multiple activities, our overall aim should be to think collectively for the common good, give back to our roots by engaging proactively in activities like adopting our villages, sponsoring the education of needy children and work for the upliftment of communities. Even though Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla has been felicitated globally, what he feels as a patriot is that he always feels great to be connected to his land of birth India, to the soil he grew up in, his people, language and everything related to his motherland.


In a world rife with division, patriotism can be a bridge. It allows us to celebrate our differences while finding common ground, a shared narrative that binds us despite our varied backgrounds. It fosters empathy, reminding us that the struggles and triumphs of one citizen are, in some way, the struggles and triumphs of us all. True patriotism isn’t a passive emotion; it’s a call to action. It compels us to engage, to participate, to be the architects of a better future. In a globalized world, patriotism isn’t about isolation. It’s about recognizing the strength we gain from sharing our best selves with the world.

As a humanist and changemaker Dr.Ramesh Nath Lingutla continues to be a dynamic force fostering dialogue, engagement and in creating a legacy we all can be proud of.
