Republic Day; the day India becomes a legitimate child
Rajendra Prasad, the first elected President of India in his speech on January 26, 1950 said, “Today, for the first time in our long and chequered history we find the whole of this vast land... brought together under the jurisdiction of one constitution and one union which takes over responsibility for the welfare of more than 320 million men and women who inhabit it.” The day indeed marked the shrugging of her last ties to Britain after adopting a Constitution which declared India as Sovereign and Democratic Republic.
This day was chosen as it was the day in 1930 when Congress Party for the first time called for complete independence from Britain. Later in 1976 through an amendment Secular and Socialist words were added. Our constitution sees that none of us get deprived of any right and neither any ones rights get infringed. Indeed carved a noble path to guide us for the smooth day to day functioning of life.
Since then it has become an occasion to celebrate this day across the country and its insignia reflects at Rashtrapati Bhawan situated at Raisina Hill illuminates with beautiful bulbs that magnifies its silhouette. This year India will celebrate the 59th year of this celebrated occasion when the first woman President of India will take the salute from different military regiments of Army, Navy and Air Force.
This celebration is also a reminder of many sacrifices made by many martyrs who fought and laid their life to secure our future. Prime Minister with three Chiefs of Army, Navy and Air Force salute these brave sons at Amar Jawan Jyoti at India Gate.
The reminiscence of those era gives pain and tears …the line sang by Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev while they were taken to be hanged-- Dil se na mitegi na marker bhi, Watan ki ulfat, Meri mitti se bhi khusbuye watan ayegi.
“Love for the motherland will not leave my heart even after death, its fragrance will still be there in my dusty remains,” is the reminder of a history, a history where pages are filled with life, death and life after death, a history which enthrals us for it gives the chronicle of various proud moments, the unsung heroes captivate our mind … the mind that is free that is free because of them.
Nation celebrates this day with gratitude, the day when India became the legitimate child of its destiny.
