Friends! Although India had obtained its independence on 15th august, 1947 but its constitution came into effect only on 26 January 1950. It was the day when our India became fully republic and democratic.
Now let me tell you the importance of our constitution. Between December 1946 and November 1949, the constituent assembly drafted a constitution for independent India. Free to shape their destiny at last, after 150 years of British rule, the constituent assembly approached this task with great idealism that the freedom struggle had helped to produce.
Our constitution guarantees to all of its citizen – justice, liberty, equality and fraternity. It gave expression to the goals, ideals and values that guided our freedom struggle.
A republic India signifies the end of British domination on Indian people; it signifies the power of non – violence to lead a country to victory with total dignity.
The beginning of this occasion is always a solemn reminder of the terrible past that lay afar as a nightmare left behind in the night.
India has turned over a new leaf, it is now moving towards progress, the dreams of the great freedom fighters and martyrs, who have fought and sacrificed everything, have come true on this day.
They wanted freedom for the people of India. Moreover, our first prime minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru said he never wanted to lose the sight of this beautiful earth and he described it as
“There is a dreamtime,
a land of fish and stars –
It is for these
that we have come
to live on the Earth”
However, at the same time if these great people had been alive they would have been greatly disappointed by the present scenario of corruption.
My dear friends come; let us begin on this day a new war for India’s progress, for India’s peace and for India. Let the revolution begin…
I would like to convey my good wishes with benediction in the following lines by the great poet, Kalidas-
May all experience bliss
May all wishes be.
