History recalling!

What does Republic Day mean for our TV stars, many of whom portray roles that veritably exude nationalistic fervour? What does it mean to them personally, and hey, do they even know the history behind it? We quizzed some stars with a few questions and here's what they had to tell Riya V Anandwala.

Republic Day's the day when we commemorated our Constitution that was written by Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar. Personally, there are no sentiments attached with it for me. I will be working tomorrow, and anyway I never do anything as such on this day. But yes, I do buy a flag on Independence Day!

Well, for me, Republic Day brings back all the childhood memories. My grandfather used to wake me up in the morning and I used to watch the parade. As I was not from Delhi, I didn't get to see the parade personally but I would love to see it one day. Even this time, I will get up early and watch the parade on the TV. Well, I do remember that the constitution was formed by Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar and we got it in 1947!

This day means a lot to me. It's a day to celebrate and offer our gratitude towards our nation. It's a day to be proud about. It is a day when everyone comes together and memorises the past deeds by which we saw Republic Day. It is a peaceful sunlight hours. I will spend the day with my children and make them aware of what Republic Day exactly is. I want them to get familiar with the meaning of it and also they should know the inside story. As I child I always watched the parade, and now I will sit with my children and they will watch it. I do remember who wrote the constitution and in which year it was formed very well!

Naturally, it is a very proud day! An add on is that it is my son's birthday too. So on this day, it is my son's day, nothing special as such. I do remember the day and date when we turned into a Republic, that's 1950. But I don't remember who wrote the Constitution. Ok, let me take a guess, was it Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar?

It doesn't mean anything different to me! As all Indians, I too feel very proud on this particular day. I make it a point to go to my school on the 26 of January as there is no other way I can show my feelings. I have always noticed one thing that people remember their nationality only on these two days, 15 August and 26 January. And that's the reason I always tell my audience through my show and performances that every day is a patriotic day! I am really bad at remembering things like dates and names, though I was really brilliant in history. But I will still try, was it Dr Ambedkar? And the year we got our constitution formed was definitely after our independence, somewhere in the fifties!
