Esteemed teachers and my dear students

Dear children, you know that today we have gathered here to celebrate our 70th Republic Day. And I would like to wish you all a Happy Republic Day!

I feel honoured to speak a few lines about our country on this auspicious day. If time permits, I wish I could speak volumes about the greatness of our nation.

Republic Day is one of the National Festivals besides Independence Day and Gandhi Jayanti.

Those who visited Jagannath temple and Bhubaneswar Lingaraj temple might be aware of the Pandas in these temples. Beware of these Pandas who are just guides and not authorized priests.

They hang around / spend time in these temples to make few bucks from the pilgrims who come from other regions / states. These people are the so-called priest-cum-guides and they easily make out whether the visitors / pilgrims are locals or non-locals. As soon as they see the non-local pilgrims entering the temple, they approach or literally chase them and speak to them politely saying that they don't demand money but just help / guide you for an easy darshan of the Mahapuru (Mahaprabhu i.e Lord Jagannath / Lingaraj). They keep following / chasing you till you engage one.

If you refuse to engage them, they go away literally cursing …
