Republic day is celebrated to remember the historic moment when our nation became an independent republic country. As we all know that India got its independence on 15th August 1947 and the country didn’t have its own constitution, instead India was governed by the laws implemented by the British. However after many deliberations and amendments, a committee headed by Dr. B.R Ambedkar submitted a draft of the Indian constitution, which was adopted on 26th November 1949 and officially came into effect on 26 January 1950.
On the same day, Dr Rajendra Prasad also began his term as the first President of India. And the Constituent Assembly became the Parliament of India under provisions of the new Constitution.
This day remind us of our freedom struggle and how the great freedom fighters of our country sacrificed their lives to get the- puran Swaraj. It’s because of their struggle that today we are living in a democratic country where each citizen has (i) Right to Equality (ii) Right to freedom (iii) right against exploitation (iv) right to freedom of religion, (v) culture and educational rights and (vi) right to constitutional remedies. Today’s the day to reaffirm our commitment to unity in diversity, fraternity and equality among all our citizens.
