Adopting The Constitution

Good morning everyone!

 My name is ……. I study in Class.… and I’m here to deliver the Republic day speech from my class for this year’s 2020 celebration. I would like to begin by telling you why we celebrate Republic Day.

70 years ago, on this day, India officially adopted the constitution framed by the drafting committee, headed by the father of our constitution, Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar. According to it, India is a Sovereign, Democratic, Secular, 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.

Our constitution is the world longest written constitution and includes a preamble and 448 articles which are further grouped in 25 parts. It is considered as the supreme law in India. We should all respect the constitution and never take it for granted.

Thank you for giving me an opportunity to speak about the significance of this great occasion.

Good Morning respected principal, teachers and my dear friends.

My name is ……… studying in Class.…… and I’m here to deliver a speech on Dr BR Ambedkar: Father of the constitution of India on the occasion of our 70th republic day today.

Dr Ambedkar’s contribution to the constitution of India is remarkable. He was also India’s first Law and Justice Minister and was appointed by the Constituent Assembly as the Chairman of the Constitution Drafting Committee to write India’s new Constitution.

He was an expert in economics and an efficient political leader. He has studied the constitution of over 60 countries. This work and vision has affected socially as well as economically. He was a progressive leader who stood against untouchability, gender inequality and any kind of that challenged individual freedom.

The constitution of India is a structure that has laid down the fundamental rights and duties of the citizens is one of the most comprehensives documents making it as the supreme law in India. Dr Ambedkar included many provisions that included freedom of religion, abolition of untouchability and thus he challenged all forms of discrimination that divided the citizens of this country. So was the personality of Dr BR Ambedkar who taught us to stand by equality and humanity throughout his life.

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.

 Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel: The Iron Man of India

Good morning respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends.

My name is …. I study 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.
