Each year, 26th January is a day on which every Indian heart fills up
with patriotic fervour and immense love for motherland. There are many
significant memories as it was this day when the Indian Tricolour was
first unfurled in January 1930 at Lahore, by Pt Jawaharlal Nehru and the
declaration of an independent Indian National Congress was made.
Republic Day reminds us of the hard work and challenges which our
forefathers faced to make this country a Sovereign Democratic Republic.
This day evokes a feeling of patriotism in the heart of every Indian.
26th January, 1950 was the day when the Indian republic and its
constitution came into force. It was this day in history in 1965 when
Hindi was declared as the official language of India.
Though India became a free nation on August 15, 1947, it declared itself
a Sovereign, Democratic and Republic state with the adoption of the
Constitution on January 26, 1950.
A salute of 21 guns and the unfurling of the Indian National Flag by Dr.
Rajendra Prasad heralded the historic birth of the Indian Republic on
that day. Thereafter 26th of January was decreed a national holiday and was recognised as the Republic Day of India.
The Constitution gave the citizens of India the power to choose
their own government and paved the way for democracy. Dr. Rajendra
Prasad took oath as the first President of India at the Durbar Hall in
Government House and this was followed by the Presidential drive along a
five-mile route to the Irwin Stadium, where he unfurled the National Flag.
Journey of Indian Republic
63 years back, a salute of 21 guns and the unfurling of the Indian
National flag by Dr. Rajendra Prasad heralded the historic birth of the
Indian Republic on January 26, 1950; 894 days after our country became a
dominion following withdrawal of British Rule. Since then, every year
the day is celebrated with great pride and happiness all over the
The transition of India from a British colony to a sovereign,
secular, and democratic nation was indeed historical. It was a long
journey of around two decades that started with the conceptualisation of
the dream in 1930 to its actual realization in 1950. A look into the
journey that led to the birth of Indian Republic will make our
celebrations more meaningful.
Lahore Session of the Indian National Congress
The seeds of a republican nation were sowed at the Lahore session of
the Indian National Congress at the midnight of 31st December 1929. The
session was held under the presidency of Pt. Jawarhar Lal Nehru. Those
present in the meeting took a pledge to mark January 26 as "Independence
Day" in order to march towards realizing the dream of complete
independence from the British. The Lahore Session paved way to the Civil
Disobedience movement. It was decided that January 26, 1930 would be
observed as the Purna Swaraj (complete Independence) Day. Many Indian
political parties and Indian revolutionaries from all over the country
united to observe the day with honour and pride.
Indian Constituent Assembly Meetings
The Indian Constituent Assembly, which was constituted as a result of
the negotiations between the Indian leaders and members of the British
Cabinet Mission, had its first meeting on December 9, 1946. The
Objective of the Assembly was to give India a constitution, which would
serve a lasting purpose and hence appointed a number of committees to
thoroughly research the various aspects of the proposed constitution.
The recommendations were discussed, debated and revised many times
before the Indian Constitution was finalized and officially adopted
three years later on November 26, 1949.
Constitution came into force
Though India became a free nation on August 15, 1947, it enjoyed the
true spirit of Independence on January 26, 1950 when the Constitution of
India finally came into force. The Constitution gave the citizens of
India the power to govern themselves by choosing their own government.
Dr. Rajendra Prasad, took oath as the first President of India at the
Durbar Hall in the Government House and this was followed by the
Presidential drive along a five-mile route to the Irwin Stadium, where
he unfurled the National Flag.
Ever since the historic day, January 26 is celebrated with festivities
and patriotic fervor all around the country. The day owes its importance
to the constitution of India that was adopted on this day. On this
Republic Day, read what the great Constitution of India, that propounds liberal democracy, has in its store. Let's also feel proud in pronouncing what the Preamble to our Constitution says.
With 395 Articles and eight Schedules,
the Indian Constitution is the largest written Constitution in the
world. On 29 August, 1947, the Constituent Assembly set up a Drafting
Committee under the Chairmanship of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar to prepare a Draft
Constitution for India.
The Constitution of India was passed by
the Constituent Assembly of India on November 26, 1949, but came into
effect on January 26, 1950.
The Constituent Assembly met for 166
days, spread over a period of two years, 11 months and 18 days. Its
sessions were open to the Press and the public.
Dr. Sachchidananda Sinha was the first
President (temporary chairman) of the Constituent Assembly when it met
on December 9, 1946. Dr. Rajendra Prasad then became the President of
the Constituent Assembly, and later became the first President of India.
The words Socialist and Secular were added to the Preamble of the Constitution by the 42nd Amendment Act, 1976.
The first national flag in India is said
to have been hoisted on August 7, 1906, in the Parsee Bagan Square
(Green Park) in Calcutta, now Kolkata. The flag was composed of three
horizontal strips of red, yellow and green.
On 26th January 2002, the Indian flag
code was modified and after several years of Independence, Indians were
allowed to hoist the Indian flag over their homes, offices and factories
on any day and not just National Days as was the case earlier.
