Good morning to all, I’m …… studying in Class .… and I’m here to deliver the Republic day speech from my class for this year’s -2019-celebration. I would like to begin by telling you why we celebrate Republic Day.

 

69 years ago, on this day, India officially adopted the constitution framed by the drafting committee, headed by the father of our constitution, Dr Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar. According to it, India is Sovereign, Democratic, Socialist Republic. On this day, our nation became an independent republic, as the constitution replaced the previously official Government of India Act of 1935. For this reason, we celebrate every 26th of January as Republic Day of India

Good morning to my respected Principal, my respected Sir/Madam and my dear friends. I’m ……… studying in Class .… and I’m here to deliver a Republic day speech. I would like to speak a few words about the leader’s who inspired our Nation.

 

India attained freedom from the colonial masters in 1947. The freedom struggle was a long one, lasting more than a century. From the first war of Indian Independence in 1857 to finally achieving Independence 90 years later, many freedom fighters have sacrificed their lives for this noble cause.

Topic:- Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel: The Iron Man of India

Good morning to my respected Principal, my respected Sir/Madam and my dear friends. I’m ……… studying in Class .… and I’m here to deliver a Republic day speech on Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel: The Iron Man of India.

 

India, in the pre-independence era, was ruled by kings and their princely states. The first challenge before the great leaders was to unify these states and it was a daunting task indeed. Sardar Patel, who is known as the iron man of India, took up this challenge and strived to convince every king and queen to formally join the union of India and make it a republic.

 

His ability to foresee a crisis and prevent Balkanisation has today resulted in our nation being a peaceful, self-governing democratic republic. Before taking up the role of unification of 562 princely states, he fought alongside many great freedom fighters and contributed immensely to the freedom movement. He was a barrister and the first Deputy Prime Minister of India in 1947.

 

His birthday, 31 October, is celebrated as Rashtriya Ekta Diwas and in his honour, a 182-metre tall ‘Statue of Unity’ was inaugurated on 31 October 2018.

 

Let us remember his service to the nation and adopt values followed by the great leader. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to speak on this proud occasion for India.

 

 

We hope this will help your children deliver an informative Republic Day speech. Let’s celebrate the Republic of India. Let’s celebrate the idea of an India built by the vision of great leaders. We wish you a happy Republic Day.
