Love Salute our Republic of India

-- Fathima Sameer,8-C,Integrated Indian School Jaleeb Al Shuwaik.

Our nation still needs heroes like Gandhiji, Bhagat Singh and Chandrashekhar. Let’s live and act like them at least on Republic Day. On this day the constitution of India was made and we got independence in the true sense. Our freedom fighters made numerous sacrifices for the independence of the country. Let us honor them by working hard for the betterment of our nation. Let us take a pledge that we would not let the efforts of our brave freedom fighters go in vain. We would fight to make our country the best in the world.

India, which is a secular and democratic nation became a republic on 26th January 1950. It is on this the day our constitution came into force. On this day the constitution prepared by drafting committee headed by BR Ambedkar was implemented, replacing the Government of India Act 1935. After 200 years of struggle, India was finally a federal democratic sovereign nation. This 26th January India will be celebrating its 70th Republic Day. This year let's take time to observe this occasion by spreading joy, peace, and patriotism amongst friends and family.

January 26 is celebrated as Republic Day of India as it is on this the day our constitution came into force. On this day the constitution prepared by drafting committee headed by BR Ambedkar was implemented, replacing the Government of India Act 1935. After 200 years of struggle, India was finally a federal democratic sovereign nation.

Though India gained independence on August 15, 1947 but our country continued to be led by British monarch King George VI. Constituent Assembly appointed drafting committee to draft a legal framework that would be passed by it. BR Ambedkar, the chief architect of our constitution was heading the committee. The constitution was passed on November 26, 1949 but those who have celebrated India's first Independence Day ,i.e., January 26, 1930 decided to wait for two more months. To remember the day and to remind countrymen of its importance, January 26 is celebrated as Republic Day.

During Lahore Session of the Indian National Congress in 1929, a resolution was passed demanding complete independence on January 26. Also, the president of the session Jawaharlal Nehru hoisted the tricolor as the day was declared Purna Swaraj Diwas. Leaders continued to celebrate the day as Independence Day for the next 17 years. To honour the significance of January 26, constituent assembly decided to enforce the constitution on this day.

On the eve of Republic Day, President of India addresses the nation. On January 26, President hoists the National Flag and ceremonial parade begins from Vijay Chowk. The parade is witnessed by many people along with foreign guests, dignitaries and delegates. Tableaux from almost all or selected states, union territories and central ministries are displayed. It is a carnival with colourful tableaux and music representing cultural heritage of states. India also displays its military skills with various regiments marching at Rajapth. Aircrafts, submarines are displayed by Air Force, Navy and Army contingents. Also the jawans of BSF, ITBP, Assam Rifles and CRPF march on the beat of rhythm. South African President Cyril Ramaphosa will be chief guest at India's 70th Republic Day celebrations.
Its great news as we all know how Gandhiji was connected with South Africa.

At our embassies all over the world including Kuwait, the respective ambassadors hoist our tricolor national flag on this day. This freedom is not cheap. People of every family had sacrificed a lot for this. Respect it by heart. Rejoice in the glory of the nation and remember the supreme sacrifices of the freedom fighters.

Jai Hind.
