Speech – 1
First of all, many congratulations to all of you on Republic Day. Respected Principal Sir, I congratulate all the teachers present here, the parents present and my dear children. We all have gathered here today to celebrate our 72nd Republic Day. Today our constitution completes 72 years in its existence.
Today, on this auspicious occasion, I pay my heartfelt tributes to all the freedom fighters who have got us this freedom. Also, I salute the great soldiers of our army who protect our country day and night from outside elements. Because of them we are able to sleep comfortably in our respective homes.
I am extremely happy that on this auspicious occasion of today, I got a chance to express my views. I express my heartfelt thanks to all.
On 26 January 1950, our country was declared a fully independent democratic republic. The Constitution of India came into force on this day. Before this, the Government of India Act 1935 used to run in our country. The Constitution had replaced the Government of India Act.
From 26 January 1950, a new era of conch shell took place in our country. The name of January 26 is inscribed in the golden letters of history. On this day in 1930, while presiding over the Congress at the Lahore session, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru declared complete independence on the banks of the Ravi river. He had said, “From today we are free and we will lay our lives on the sacrifice of freedom for the sake of the country’s independence. And we will breathe a sigh of happiness only by sending the rulers who snatched our freedom across the seven seas.”
Since we got independence on 15th August 1947, But our constitution was started from 1946 itself, and it took 2 years, 11 months and 18 days to make it. And finally on 26 November 1949, it was handed over to the people of India after becoming in its full form. And on 26 January 1950, the constitution was implemented in the whole country. Since then every year we celebrate 26 January as Republic Day with great enthusiasm and enthusiasm.
This festival is celebrated with great pomp all over the country. Today is a national holiday in all government offices. Because 26 January is one of our national festivals. There are three national festivals of our country. Independence Day, Republic Day and Gandhi Jayanti. All three have their own special significance.
In the capital Delhi, the glory of Republic Day is worth seeing. Its preparations start months in advance. Children and old people, everyone waits for this festival. It is celebrated in all the schools and colleges. Our tricolor is hoisted in all government and private institutions.
Our President hoists the flag around 8 in the morning. And as soon as the flag is hoisted, the whole country sings the national anthem in one voice. As soon as it ends, this auspicious day begins. Many people reach Rajpath early in the morning to witness this moment. We all know about Delhi’s winter, regardless of the cold, people gather in huge numbers. This moment is very special for all of us Indians.
As the Commander-in-Chief, the President takes the salute of the three armies, water, land and air. The President is then given a 21-gun salute. Then the parade begins, in which there are troops of all the three armies, water, land and air. These detachments also have band groups, which parade while playing the baja. The pieces move sequentially one after the other. In the background, announcements are made about all the groups in both Hindi and English languages. Groups of different schools also walk behind them. It is a wonderful sight. Apart from this, tableaux of different states also come out in the parade.
It passes through all the markets of Delhi and stops at India Gate, where Prime Minister ‘Shri Narendra Modi’ lays a wreath at the Amar Jawan Jyoti, remembering our brave soldiers. On this occasion, the President also hosts a feast for the visiting guests.
This festival is a symbol of our unity, prosperity and pride. The freedom which we got from so many difficulties, it needs to be preserved. We have to become a partner in the development journey of our country and make it more prosperous. With these words, I would like to allow you to end my speech.
Jai Hind. Victory to India.

We all are proud to be Indian. Happy Republic Day to the distinguished guests present here, the headmaster of our school, my fellow teachers and my dear children. I congratulate all of you who came and graced this festival. We all are celebrating our 72nd Republic Day here today.
First of all, I pay homage to all the heroes of freedom, who gave us freedom by putting their lives on the line.
I am very happy that on this auspicious occasion of today, I got a chance to say two words. I thank everyone for this.
It was on this day that we got our constitution, and became a sovereign democratic republic country. Our constitution is the largest and written constitution in the world. Our constitution is the essence of the constitutions of many countries, that is, after studying the constitutions of different countries, after a lot of hard work and effort, the present form of the constitution has been reflected.
The Constituent Assembly was formed and the first meeting took place in December 1946. There were 299 people in the Indian Constituent Assembly, which was presided over by Dr. Rajendra Prasad. The Constituent Assembly completed the constitution on 26 November 1949 and was implemented in the whole country on 26 January 1950. It took 2 years, 11 months, 18 days for the completion of the Indian Constitution.
The original constitution had 395 articles, 22 parts and 8 schedules. At present there are 395 articles, 22 parts and 12 schedules. Our government runs on parliamentary business system. Which is a federal system. The constitutional head is the President, but the real power is vested in the Prime Minister. There is a Council of Ministers to advise the President.
Today, on this auspicious day, I would like to say only one thing that in these 70 years our country has made immense progress. We are one of the most developed countries in Asia. Our country has made tremendous progress in every field.
By sending our vehicle to Mars this year, we have proved that we are not less than anyone in any field. The world has also recognized this thing.
Like every year, we are celebrating our Republic Day this year too, but to get the freedom that our freedom fighters had put their lives on the line, and laughed and hanged themselves. We have forgotten the sacrifice of such brave soldiers. Whenever 26th January or 15th August comes, we are reminded of our freedom, country and law. The rest of the day everyone is sitting there forgetting everything. This is not a good thing for the country.
The feeling of patriotism should not be such opportunistic. I often see that today everyone celebrates Republic Day with great joy, enthusiasm and respect, hoisting the flag, giving a long speech on the respect of national symbols. Teach everyone that we should do this for the country, we should do that, but the very next day our national flag, which is a symbol of pride and prestige of our country, is found lying on the streets and roads of the country. Where then does our patriotism go?
Mahatma Gandhi, Subhash Chandra Bose, Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Chandra Shekhar Azad etc. Our immortal martyrs, did our mother earth free from the shackles of slavery for this day, the dream they had about the country’s independence, Have to prove it.
We are all very fortunate to have been born in independent India. We did not bear the brunt of slavery, so we are not aware of that pain. Today’s young generation is missing in itself. Which is not right.
I would urge the future generations of our country to recognize the power and potential within them. If he wants, he can do anything. Nothing is impossible for him. The future of the country rests on you.
With these good wishes, I bid you farewell.
Jai Hind Jai Bharat.
