Republic Day is celebrated on 26th January every year. It is on this day that the constitution of free India came into force, i.e., on 26 January, 1950. Our thoughts on this day go back to the founding fathers of our constitution whose far-sighted vision and ardour labours gave us a constitution which enshrined the traditional concepts of liberty, equality and fraternity adding to them the concept of Justice social, economic and political and declaring our nation a sovereign democratic Republic. The word ‘Republic’ signifies that in our state supreme power is not exercised by some remote monarch but by the people. This is a day when we take pride in our achievements, but it is most surely also a day of honest self-analysis and self-questioning about where we, as a people and a society, are headed.
