Republic Day Special:
Every year, every Indian celebrate Republic day, host flags, and enjoy the day. But, Maximum people don’t know the actual importance of this day. Constitution was made on 26 Nov 1949, but came into effect on 26 Jan 1950. 26 Jan was chosen because of one single reason, Purna Swaraj was proclaimed on 26 Jan 1929. Constitution, the governing document of India, consists of a series of rules and regulation.
Every person, proclaim that, “They have the right to speak” given by Constitution. But the people use this freedom against the nation. Some recent incidents are, Nasiruddin Shah, who told in an interview that he felt fear in this country, but forget that Constitution or country is giving this power to him to express. This should be understand by the every person of nation, that Constitution is the most scared book of the nation above individual religion’s sacred book, hence keeping believe on Constitution and spreading peace is deserved by the nation.
Freedom is not given, but it is taken by a number of sacrifice and deaths, So we did not take our freedom as a granted. Praising Indian constitution and feeling pride for nation, other than working hard for nation is the need of the nation.
