Respected dignitaries on the dais and my dear friends,
Let me first wish all a Happy Republic Day. Our nation celebrates its 65th Republic Day on the 26th January 2013.
This day is so special for us, which remembers us the days when our great leaders fought themselves against the British to achieve peace and harmony for the country. We also have to pay homage to those who have laid down their lives for the safety and security of the nation.
It had been well passed six decades as a democratic republic that we have been guided by the principles of justice, liberty, equality and fraternity. This 62nd milestone has marked with the many achievements that we have attained in many of the fields and also several issues that have to be resolved. We have to look at our achievements with pride and address the challenges to keep us move forward for steering the nation towards destiny.
During the last few years, we have faced major events concerned with financial and security both at the global and the national level which include terrorism, violence, rise in food price and the global economic crisis. These challenges make us think of reinforce monitoring and response mechanisms.
Many of the terror acts over few of our cities had taken the life of innocent people. These terrorists might have thought of bringing down the confidence of the people of India by providing these attacks. But, we know things were not as like the plan made by the terrorists. The citizens of India stood together to fight against this anti human act. The recent election held in many of the states show how people are bringing themselves to the show their faith over our democratic polity. The best part of unity as shown during the freedom period does pass as a film through our mind, as the sprit of unity flows through the blood of the one billion individuals of the country. Its really this unity which have helped us in tough times to resolve and fulfill our national ambitions and goals.
The road ahead is a long one,where we have mile to go.With determination and unity we can move forward. On this special occasion, I urge all of you to show the unity and strength and develop the nation where citizens live with peace and mutual understanding.
