Every year on January 26th, India celebrates Republic Day, one of the three most significant national holidays. This day commemorates the adoption of the Constitution of India on January 26, 1950, a milestone event following India’s hard-fought independence on August 15, 1947. For parents, understanding the importance of Republic Day can help instill a sense of national pride and historical awareness in your children.

A Historical Milestone

January 26 was chosen to mark the declaration of Purna Swaraj or Complete Self-rule, which was a pivotal event in India’s journey post-independence. With the adoption of the 1950 Constitution, India officially became a “sovereign socialist secular democratic republic” that guarantees justice, liberty, equality, and fraternity to all its citizens. This day is a reminder of the efforts and sacrifices made to secure these freedoms.

A National Celebration

Every year, New Delhi hosts a grand parade showcasing India’s historical, cultural, and military achievements. The Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force perform, creating a spectacle that is broadcasted across the nation. Families can come together to watch this parade, decorate their homes with the Indian flag, read about India’s rich history, and enjoy patriotic movies. These activities not only create a festive atmosphere but also provide educational opportunities for children to learn about their heritage.

Why Republic Day Matters

  1. Celebrates the Constitution That Governs India
    Republic Day reminds us that India is governed by its Constitution, not by any dictator or empire. The Constitution, crafted with immense effort and intellectual input, is the foundation of India’s democracy and legal system. It is crucial for children to understand the importance of this document and the values it upholds.
  2. Upholds the Justice System in India
    Republic Day highlights the importance of a fair and just legal system. The journey to independence was marked by numerous freedom fighters who fought for justice and rights. Educating children about these struggles helps them appreciate the robust legal framework that protects citizens’ rights today.
  3. Celebrates the Importance of Democracy
    Many nations have suffered under authoritarian regimes. Republic Day serves as a reminder of the benefits of living in a democratic country that values human rights and freedoms. Teaching children about democracy and its significance encourages them to be active, informed citizens.

Inspiring the Future Generation

On Republic Day 2021, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal emphasized the role of youth in nation-building, stating, “The youth are the future of India. They have tremendous energy, aspirations, dreams, and the willpower to fulfill them. I told the students to make their best contribution, play an important role in nation-building, and become responsible citizens.” At ConnectEd, we wholeheartedly agree. We believe that understanding the significance of Republic Day can inspire your children to contribute positively to society.
