Speech: Constitution of India

Good Essays
Republic day.

Honorable Chief Guest of the day, distinguished guests for the occasion,teachers, parents and all my dear friends wish you very very Happy Republic Day. It has been my Privilege that I got an opportunity to speak in front of you all on this occasion. Republic Day represents the true spirit of the independent India. Military parades, displays of military equipment and the national flag are important symbols on this date. 26th January 1950 is one of the most important days in Indian history as it was on this day the constitution of India came into force and India became a truly sovereign state though india got freedom on 15th august 1947 but till 1949 it din’t have a permanent constitution of its own,instead were functioning under the laws enacted and implemented by the british .And after many amendments the Constitution was approved and accepted on November 26, 1949 that came into force in a full-fledged fashion from on 26 January, 1950 Dr. Rajendra Prasad took oath as India’s first President on 26th January 1950.. Thus, Republic Day celebration is the moment to remember the coming of the Constitution into effect. The date 26th January was especially selected since it was the anniversary of Purna Swaraj Day (26th January 1930). It has been 64 years from the day our constitution came into effect.

Since January 26, 1950, we are celebrating this auspicious event as Republic Day. One of the most interesting fact about 26 January is the day is already celebrated by India since 1930, before the Indian constitution of India was brought in.It was the same day, when congress had asked British India government for certain changes. Failure to the changes would lead to declaration of Independence Day in India.
In August 15, 1947, India finally got Independence. A committee was formed under the leadership of Dr. B.R Ambedkar.. It took Dr. B.R.Ambedkar 2 years 11 months

    Youth Convention. Recently, the parliament has been debating over how changes to the Constitution will most adequately recognise the previous ownership of Australia by Indigenous peoples. Today, I will be giving you a better understanding of how the colonial experiences in the 18th and 19th centuries, ultimately led to the lack of desire of the British men to include the Aborigines in the Australian Constitution, because recognising them meant acknowledging the original owners of the land.

    India Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we will redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance ....
