A citizen is a person who lives in a particular
country for a long time. He may be born in the country or not but, by
virtue of his long stay in the country he earns the right to the
citizenship of the country and starts being so called.
The basic difference in the acquired citizenship
after stay and that of being a citizen by birth is that, when a person
acquires it, it is to be by an application for the same. When a person
is born in a place, he is automatically a citizen of it, and does not
have to apply for it.
Now, as we all know that man, no matter where he
stays, in the family, in the society, in the office or in the country,
he has some obligations towards them. These obligations of an
individual are called duties.
