We should be proud of living in a country like India. India is our motherland. It has offered us so much in terms of its diverse culture, unique traditions, and excellent hospitality across different regions.
We should all respect our beliefs and customs that allow us to be connected to the very fact of being an Indian. We are all enjoying the fruits of freedom that was achieved by freedom fighters after a long struggle with the British.
We should definitely remember our great leaders on this day. Mahatma Gandhiji, Jawaharlal Nehru, Subhas Chandra Bose, Sardar Vallabhai Patel, etc fought valiantly to achieve freedom for the nation.
They adopted different ways to push the British out of our country, but their hard work and patriotism new no bounds.
They toiled day and night to free the country from British rule. Once the country was free from the British, the country was under the Congress government rule which had to build the nation from scratch.
The nation was seeing a time of chaos and utter confusion and there was no proper judgment of law during those times.
So, an effective constitution that prepared rules and regulations, created a legislative, implemented a judiciary was brought in place to run the country on the tracks of law and order.
We should be thankful to the great leaders who framed our constitution, because anything that happens in our country, takes place inside a legal framework and thus the constitution forms the basic reference point for all activities in the country.
The country has prospered so much in terms of science and technology. We see giants in technology from our nation work wonders. The constitution has provided separate provisions for looking into the technological development of the country.
We are a nation still deeply etched in poverty. People friendly schemes and schemes to uplift the downtrodden masses are special initiatives declared in the constitution.
We should adhere to the doctrines mentioned in the constitution and perform our activities only within the framework of law.
We should respect our great leaders who fought for our country’s independence. The wrong implementation of the laws under constitution has brought the nation under the paws of political leaders in the current scenario.
We should effectively deliver justice to people. Law should be implemented correctly in the courts. We should represent our nation in all walks of life.
We stand tall as citizens of the country. Our responsibilities do not end there. We should work for the welfare of the nation. We should respect decisions taken by the constitution drafters.
Our country is in dearth of great leadership at present times. We should choose only the right representatives who can run the country smoothly.
We need good leaders like Bhagat Singh, who can defend the country and sacrifice for the nation when situation demands.
