Speech on Respect in English
Speech – 1
Respected Principal, teachers and my dear students!
First of all thank you for being a part of this celebration. We have gathered here to celebrate our school’s annual day and like every year. We will try our best to make this festival the most memorable one for all of you.
I would like to thank the organizers for giving me the opportunity to host the event. As you all know that our school is highly recognized on the international stage and is one of the top 10 schools in the state. Students who complete their education from our school get admission in popular colleges and universities and work in very good positions in highly recognized organizations.
The intelligence and common sense of our students are highly appreciated. I also urge every student of this school to earn respect towards others. As you all know respect is an encouraging feeling of admiration for a person or institution. It shows the respect and kindness shown by a person towards others. It is very important that we work to bring harmony in the society by respecting each other and always remember that respect is not demanded but earned and respect is earned through our noble deeds and actions.
While it is important that we respect everyone we meet in our lives, it is equally important that we follow actions that can help us gain respect. Respect is first in a person who earns wealth through his behavior through activities for office, home or society.
It is important that parents teach their children to respect their older grandparents, teachers, their fellow friends and everyone around them, then only we will be able to build a positive society. Nowadays people get angry over small things and get involved in controversies which sometimes turn violent. If children are taught to forgive minor matters and respect those around them, they will grow up to lead a happy life.
It is also important for all of us to respect our environment. We should be careful not to throw garbage in public places like roads, parks, sidewalks etc. Children learn what they see. Thus good habits should be taken into account by their respective parents and relatives of the children.
I would also like to focus on ‘respect for culture’. I understand that the world is becoming global and all countries are exchanging art, talent, culture and traditions with each other. But it does not allow anyone to insult our Indian culture. Indian culture is one of the oldest and one of the best in the world. Today’s children are the future of our nation and thus they should ensure that people across the world respect India.
There is no specific definition of the word ‘respect’ and no formula that will help you to respect others. We respect the people we love but sometimes we also have to meet people from whom we should show respect without expecting anything in return. For example, if you are sitting while traveling in a public transport and a disabled person comes near you then you should respect that person and provide your seat to that person.
Such small deeds will help you in getting a lot of respect in the society. Apart from this, if you start respecting yourself then it will always help you to move forward in life positively.
Thank you for listening to me so patiently. I wish you all a good future!

I welcome all of you to the program ‘Give respect first to get respect’. First of all, many thanks to the organizers and supporters. All this would not have been possible without your support.
As you all know our organization is a charity organization and we work for the elderly who are homeless or who have been neglected or thrown out of their homes by relatives. I have been associated with this organization for the last 10 years i.e. since its inception. The cases I have seen the most in these 10 years relate to senior citizens rejected by my own son and family. It seems strange in a country like India where we talk about maintaining our culture, tradition, religion and ethnicity.
We share many messages and sayings on Parents Day, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day but in reality we lack basic ethics and responsibility. Respecting one’s parents is not a duty or an obligation but it is our religion. Our parents have done a lot for us apart from bringing us into this world. They take care of their children’s every need and struggle everyday to put a smile on our faces but when they get old and need us the most, we get so busy with ourselves that we can’t help them. And that is the reason why there are so many old age homes all over the world.
My father always says that the youth of earlier times used to give a lot of respect to the seniors. In those days the youth did not sit in front of their elders, did not smoke or drink alcohol. Unfortunately the culture and consciousness of respect for each other is fast disappearing in our society in present times.
In the name of privacy, we have indulged in petty activities like smoking, drinking, drinking etc. In the name of freedom, we stay out all night and do not consider it necessary to inform our elders, skip meals and go missing for the whole day. All this happens because we have lost our sense of responsibility. We are becoming more and more impatient and have built a wall around us. If our elders try to break that wall then we lose our patience and behave inappropriately like shouting and throwing objects etc.
I will also mention the role of social media towards this change. Not that I am blaming social media for people but the truth is that most of the social media users have a ‘don’t bother me’ thinking. Most of the people who come home from work in the evening prefer to check their instant chat messages and profiles of friends on social media instead of spending time with their family. Gradually it is becoming a tradition of almost every household and today’s children are growing up in this environment. When such children grow up, they give respect to the virtual people but ignore the real ones.
Unless we develop a sense of love and responsibility towards others, we will not be able to respect others. Respecting others is not the special thing you would do to someone. In fact you must respect others to get respect. The sooner we realize that the better.

Respected Principal, Honorable Teachers and my dear friends! Good morning.
First of all I would like to welcome all of you to this inspirational event and thank all the team members who have helped each other in organizing this event. I am Vani from class XII and it is my privilege to host this event. Today this program is specially organized for the students and their parents. This program is based on the importance of respect in our life. For today’s event the students have prepared games, speeches and many more activities. So before his performance begins, I want to give a speech on honor at the beginning of the program.
As we all know that in today’s world everyone is running after money. Everyone knows that money plays an important role in fulfilling our needs but money is also a way to build a good image in the society and a good image is a way to gain respect among people. So we can say that respect is one of the main objective which most of the people want to get in their whole life but we cannot consider money as the only means of getting respect because our behavior and how we treat other people will make us feel better. Tells us about relationships.
Almost everyone in this world wants to get respect. If we want to get respect then it is very important that we also respect other people. To get respect a person should understand that he should not ask everyone for respect but earn it because respect can only be earned. A person can gain respect by doing good deeds or by doing such activities which create respect for him in the other mind.
If we are talking about respect then there are some important person in everyone’s life whom we give respect like our respected parents, grandparents, teachers etc. These people hold an important place in our lives and hearts. He is the most respected person in our life.
Despite all these respected people in our life, there are some people whose inspirational life and good deeds force us to give them respect. Yes! I am talking about our respected soldiers and police because they are the main reason for maintaining our country’s independence and integrity. They are risking their lives to save our lives. Protecting a country as big as ours is really not an easy task. The reason for protecting the whole country is the biggest reason behind his honor.
With this, I want to end my speech and give special thanks to our honorable Principal Madam and also congratulate the teachers and all the parents for participating in this event and making us successful by cooperating. I would like to thank the members of my team who organized this event with unity.
Thank you. Good day to you all.

Respected Principal Madam, Honorable Manager Sir and Professors and my dear friends!
Today our college has organized a debate competition for all the students. I am a Vanika and I am very happy to have the opportunity to host this competition. This debate competition is specially organized for the students to help them overcome their hesitations and fears. The theme of today’s debate competition is ‘Respect can only be achieved’. As we know that one team has to speak in support of it and others will speak against it but before going ahead I want to say a few words about respect.
As everyone knows respect is something that almost everyone wants. Every person should know that the important thing is that if we want respect then we have to give respect to others. Every person in this world gets respect on the basis of his deeds. If a person’s behavior is good or his mood is helpful then he automatically forces other people to respect him.
As we know there are some important person in our life whom we should give respect. Yes, I am talking about my parents, teachers, grandparents and many other respected people. He is the person who teaches us how to give respect and how to get respect. We respect our parents because they are the reason for our existence in this world and they do everything possible to keep us happy. Grandparents also play an important role in our lives. They are known to be the most respected people in the house. Most grandparents care for their grandchildren. Most children are more attached to their grandparents during childhood but unfortunately most of the parents and grandparents are neglected by their children or grandchildren and have to live their life in old age homes. It is one of the most painful behavior of children who ignore their parents and grandparents when they need help. Instead of getting respect from their children, they are being ignored and have to live in old age homes.
Teachers also have an important place among all these respected people in our lives. A teacher shows his students the right path which motivates the students for success. It is impossible to achieve success without someone’s guidance and there is no greater guide in this world than a teacher. A good teacher tries his best to make his student’s future bright but after a bright future most of the students forget to thank their teachers. One should never forget their parents, teachers and everyone who has supported them every moment.
So if we really want to get respect then first of all we have to respect other people especially our elders including parents, teachers and elders.
With this, I would like to end my speech and would like to give special thanks to the Principal Madam, who gave me a chance to express my views in front of all of you on this platform.
