Hi my dear brothers and sisters
We have been celebrating Republic Day of our great country for the last 61 years. This is our 61st Republic Day. I extend you very warm greetings in this auspicious occasion.
26th January 1950- it was the day on which we became a Sovereign Democratic Republic country and the Constitution of our country came into force. There's a reason behind the selection of 26th January as our Republic Day. In 1930, National leaders of our country hoisted the tricolor National flag of Indian on the banks of Rai River. People were asked to observe January 26 as the Independence Day of our country. But when we got Independence in 1947, the importance of this important day started to vanish. So our national leaders choose 26th January to honor the Purna Swaraj declaration of 1930, our freedom struggle and freedom fighters.
This January 26 is the 65th Republic Day of India. In this peak time, let us take a quick walk from the old foreign invaded India to the modern India of 21st century.
When India became independent from the dirty hands of Britishers, our country and leaders had much to do. Our country was like a hell. People fought against each other for anything and everything. But with the strength and leadership of our National leaders, everything were wiped out. India became a Sovereign Republic State. Democracy and Constitution of India came into force. Still we are the largest democracy in the world.
But, Independence and Democracy doesn't ensure peace always. We have been witnessing heart stacking terrorist attacks and activities in our country. Terrorism and terrorists have been taking the lives of our valued citizens. The recent Taj Hotel attack was the one of the darkest of its kind. Although we are sovereign, free and republic, we are not yet free from these types of negative forces that's pulling our country from the main stream. We have to fight against these forces as our great grandfathers fought against the foreigners to eliminate these elements from our great country.
This is the 21st century. Every country is running fast as they can. We, with more than 100 Crore of human resources is still developing. This is a worse thing to note. We need to learn lesson from other countries like Japan. I request every Indian to contribute himself/herself for our country's great run into the future. If we- tomorrow's generation, learn and work properly, we can make the vision of our former Presiden A P J Abdul Kalam true.
Poverty, illiteracy, unemployment- these are the three factors that pull our country away from mainstream. Still we have a portion of our population living without the basic necessities of life. This should not happen. Our Government and other non-Governmental organizations have to focus on this issue. Although our IT structure is booming better than any country in the world, we have a good population suffering from any job. Illiteracy is one of the main facts behind this unemployment. Education should be the motto of our country for the coming years to make ours a developed nation where prosperity and happiness runs smoothly.
Our country is a symbol of great diversity in every form. Time is running faster than anything. But still we hold this uninty close to our heart for the last 60 years. I wish feeling of oneness remains in the heart of every Indian in our movement to glorious future.
