Republic speech for schools / college students
Good morning to All.
We have gathered here today on the occasion of India's Republic Day. A short while ago, we have heard the speech from our honorable Chief Guest after hoisting the national flag of India. We also got an opportunity to meet and hear the chief guest's speech on the Republic Day topic. We also heard the speech from our School / College Management and Teachers.
Now I would say thanks to all for giving me such a wonderful opportunity to stand here and speak a little bit about our beloved country on her Republic day. India is a democratic country. India got an Independence on 14th August 1947. On 26th January 1950, the Constitution of India was formed and on that day we have celebrated this day as Republic day every year. The person behind this constitution is Dr. B. R. Ambedkar. In this year we are celebrating India's 65th republic day.
Now the question arises: what do we mean by republic? I will tell you what is its meaning. A republic refers to a State in which the supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch (King or Queen). On this day we are enjoying Coca cola, Kurkre with some great performances by the Armed Forces. But did you know that our ancestors devoted their lives to get the'Swaraj'? They have done very heroic deeds so we can enjoy this day.
We have to remember our great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Bhagath singh, Lajpath Rai who have fought for us against the British. It doesn't mean that only on Republic day we have to remember their sacrifices towards the nation but daily we have to remember and salute them. Because of them our country became democratic and nobody is ruling our country like a King or a Queen. We have to remember others too whose names I have not mentioned but who have fought for the country before, during and after India's Independence.
