Happy Republic Day

PUBLISH DATE 26th January 2020

With the great power of being part of the largest democracy also comes huge responsibilities for Indians. Of keeping the nation “sovereign, socialist, secular and democratic republic” as mentioned in the Preamble. The Constitution of India narrates rights and responsibilities quite clearly for all its citizens. January 26, every year, celebrates the adoption of the Constitution.

After 71 years, several state-run schools have adopted the Preamble as the first page of their school textbooks. Many states including Chhattisgarh have decided to hold discussions on the Constitution, all to make our future generation aware about it. However, not many young adults are aware about what it entails.
