26 January Republic Day Speech – Republic Day 2015

The following speech is a good speech on a occasion like Republic Day in India. You might be asked to give a speech about Republic day – the 26 January 1950, when the Constitution of India was brought into effect – when India used to celebrate the Fake Independence day.

Namaskar my dear brothers and sisters from India. Our country celebrates the Republic day every year since 1950 and like every year, this Republic day brings warm greetings for everyone on this auspicious occasion.

Since 1930, India has been celebrating 26th January as an auspicious day which was nearly 20 years even before the actual Republic day started to be taken into consideration.

26th January 1930 marked the first Fake Independence day which the country used to observe when the Congress had asked the British to comply on certain requirements, which if not followed would be declared as the independence day for the country.

After India got the actual independence on 15th August 1947, the committee under the leadership of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar brought up the new Constitution of India which replaced the Government of India Act of 1935.

The purna Swaraj declaration of 1930 got a new appearance when the old fake independence day got vanishing after we got the actual independence.

When India became independent from the British rule, there was a lot of rework to be done to save our country from becoming a hell. It was a time when people were fighting with each other for each and everything.

The Independent republic of India was officially born on 26th January 1950 after being for nearly 100 years under the British rule.

The ceremonies of 1950 marked the cutting down of the last ties of of India to Britain. The first Indian president got sworn in, is Dr. Rajendra Prasad whose words were as follows: -
“Today, for the first time in our long and chequered history,” he said, “we find the whole of this vast land… brought together under the jurisdiction of one constitution and one union which takes over responsibility for the welfare of more than 320 million men and women who inhabit it.”

Today, the country stil fights the crime and violence which has a different design than that of earlier times.
Prior to Independence, the crime and violence had the name of British.
Now the crime and violence has the name of terrorits, rape, burglary, riots, strikes and the taking of lives of valued citizens.
Even after becoming republic, we are not free of the terrorism which is pulling our country from the main stream of countris in the path of development and progress.

Poverty, illiteracy, unemployent are the three major factors which is pulling us back and making people to sort to the bad ways of living life.

Still with all these problems, Unity in diversity has been the biggest symbol of our country. I feel that we make our progress in the good direction in the coming days and the feeling of oneness remains in the progressive days of tomorrow.

Jai Hind.
