Saluting the Indian Republic!
One of the greatest events in history has been the adoption of the Constitution of India and the transition of India from a British Dominion to a republic on January 26, 1950.
The Indian constitution is what lays down the framework defining fundamental political principles, establishing the structure, procedures, powers and duties, of the government and spells out the fundamental rights, directive principles and duties of citizens. Passed by the Constituent Assembly on November 26, 1949, it came into effect on January 26, 1950. It declares The Union of India to be a sovereign, democratic republic, assuring its citizens of justice, equality, and liberty; the words "socialist", "secular" and "integrity" were added to the definition in 1976 by constitutional amendment.
The constitution is that supreme law that dictates my acts as a law abiding citizen, as much as it guarantees me the freedom to live and raise my family in justice, equality and liberty.
