Constitution Day, previously celebrated as Law Day and also called as Samvidhan Diwas, is celebrated in India on 26th November every year to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution of India. Adopted in 1949 by the Constituent Assembly of India, the Constitution came into effect on 26 January 1950.However, the celebration started in 2015, when honourable PM, Mr Narendra Modi marked 26th November as Constitution Day in India.
At NPS Hosur Road, we celebrated the remarkable day in the school premises on 26th November 2021 at 8:15am, marking the 72nd anniversary of the adoption of the Indian Constitution. The programme witnessed the Welcome speech, explaining about the significance of the day. The next phase of the program, was about the Role Play of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, who is considered the father of the Indian Constitution.
To quote Dr. Ambedkar’s speech:
“The credit that is given to me does not really belong to me. It belongs partly to Sir B.N. Rau, who prepared a rough draft of the Constitution for the consideration of the Drafting Committee.”
The students then spoke about the Preamble, explaining the philosophy and objectives of the Indian Constitution. The program went on highlighting the timeline taken to draft our Constitution: Two years-11 months and 18 days, to be precise. The audience was thrilled to know about the various amazing facts about the Indian Constitution. Educating ourselves about the Child Laws existing in the Constitution, the audience also witnessed the lively and the colourful posters made by the students. Finally, the programme ended with “Why” is the Day celebrated: To create awareness about the rights and responsibilities of citizens.
