cause of the freedom.
REPUBLIC DAY - 26TH JANUARY
The first Republic Day Parade was held at Irwin Stadium (the present National Stadium in Delhi, India). The hoisting of the national flag by the President and a parade of units representing all the armed forces are the highlights of the ceremonies. Since many years, the Republic Day Parade starts from Rashtrapati Bhavan and winding its way through the heart of the city, ends at the historic Red Fort in Old Delhi.The celebrations are spectacular with 'Beating Retreat' three days later on 29th January. The notes of 'Abide with me',favourite of Mahatma Gandhi is played with final retreat marking the end of Republic day celebrations.
The rich tradition and
culture of India reflects India's true blends of rich flavours of harmony. The
Independent India is a struggle for freedom. India became a Republic and the constitution
came into force on January 26, 1950. The Constituent Assembly was convened and appointed a
committee with Dr. B.R.Ambedkar as Chairman to draft the Constitution. India declared
herself to be a Sovereign Democratic Republic. The Indian Constitution, the longest in the
world, consist 397 articles and 12 schedules, which provides for a single citizenship for
the whole of India. It gives the right to vote to all citizens of 18 years and above,
unless they are disqualified. Fundamental rights are guaranteed to the citizens, equality
of religion and so on. The Supreme Court, consisting of the Chief Justice of India and
other judges, is the guardian of the Constitution. It stands at the apex of a single
integrated judicial system for the whole country. This is where the fundamental rights of
the citizens are protected.
The Political Model – The constitution pledge to solemnly resolve to constitute India into a Sovereign Socialist Secular Democratic Republic and secure to all citizens its rights like:
*Justice, social, economic and political
*Liberty of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship
*Equality of status and of opportunity and to promote among them all
