Short Speech on Republic Day (26 January)

We are all proud citizens of India. 26th January is celebrated as Republic Day in India every year. On this day in 1950, India becomes a Democratic Republic. Celebrations are held every year on this day throughout the country.

On 26th January, 1950, the Constitution of India came into force and made India a Democratic Republic country. The people of our country rule themselves and all are equal and free. The government is ruled by candidates selected by the people of our country.

The Constitution of India was drafted by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar which helped to replace the existing Government of India Act, 1935. The Constitution of India which was drafted by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was actually passed on 26th November, 1949.

Hence, India becomes a sovereign, socialist, secular and democratic republic on 26th January, 1950. But the word ‘socialist’ and ‘secular’ was previously not present in the constitution. It was added in its 42nd amendment in 1976.

The fundamental rights and duties of the people of the Republic in India have been laid down in our constitution. Every citizen of India is equal in the eye of law, and no one is to suffer because of religion, creed, caste, colour or race.

During the British Rule, two great personalities such as Mahatma Gandhi and Rabindranath Tagore gave the same message of peace, love, unity and equality.

Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the first President of the Indian Republic, had asked us to think more of our duties than of our rights. Jawaharlal Nehru, our first Prime Minister too, has again given us the same message.

The people of India celebrate Republic Day with proud and honour. This is also a day of reunion. The People celebrate this day with the whole family. People wear new clothes and start the day with the National Song of India.

In most organizations, clubs, institutions, parades are organized where people wear white clothes with Tri-colour in their hands and march to some specified areas. Patriotic songs are sung everywhere.

The celebrations in the capital (New Delhi) are the most stunning with parade and cultural pageant by different states.

Republic Day is an official holiday and all the schools and colleges celebrate this day by organizing a little program and finally a parade of all boys and girls. They all march inside the campus of the schools and colleges and feel proud to be an Indian. Many people celebrate this day with their friends and loved ones.

Let us make a great promise that we would be live together in peace and happiness as the people of the same nation.
