Republic Day Speech For School Students

A simple and easy Republic Day speech for the school children in India.

Honorable Chief Guest, respected Principal, esteemed teachers and my dear friends.

Today I stand before you on this auspicious occasion to speak a few words on the 69th Republic Day of India. First of all I would like to wish all my countrymen a Happy Republic Day and pray God for the well being of our nation. You all know that our country became free from the British rule in 1947, later our Constitution was drafted by the members of the Drafting Committee. Thus India was declared a republic country on 26 January 1950 when she celebrated her 1st Republic Day. Every year we celebrate Republic Day on 26 January with high spirits of patriotism as it was on this day that our constitution came into force. This is one of the important National festivals of our country besides Independence Day on 15 August and Gandhi Jayanti on 2nd October.

Immediately after Independence a drafting committee was formed in 1947 under the chairmanship of Dr.B.R.Ambedkar and other members like N. Gopalaswami Ayyangar, Alladi Krishnaswami Ayyangar, K,M.Munshi, Syyed Mohd Saadulla, and D. P. Khaitan. It was on this historic day in the year 1950 that the Constitution of India officially came into force and India was declared a Sovereign, Socialist, Democratic, Republic. Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the first President of Independent India took oath at the Durbar Hall in the Govt House at New Delhi. He then went on a Presidential drive to Irwin Stadium to hoist our National Tricolor Flag which was followed by a 21 gun shot salute accompanied with playing the tune of our National Anthem - Jana Gana Mana. From then onwards every year the grandest event of Republic Day parade is held in New Delhi.

On this special day, the spirit of patriotism arouses in the heart of every Indian when they salute the National Flag that flies high in the sky. Today when we are celebrating the 68th Republic Day, let us re-dedicate ourselves for the welfare of our nation. Lets strive to build a stronger nation in the coming years. This day reminds us the sacrifice of the great leaders of our nation who dreamed for a strong India. We students have great potential in us, let us realize the potential within us and as the future citizens of our country, let us try to use our potential for a social cause. Let us make our nation a developed one in the coming year so that we can proudly announce that we are the developed nation and not still a developing nation.

Let us stand united for this great cause and help ourselves for the development of our nation. Let us not forget that our country is well known for its 'Unity in Diversity'. Let us stand united for the welfare of the society. Let us understand that these special national days i.e. Republic Day and Independence Day are not just for giving away few speeches in the schools and colleges but these are the festivals of re-dedication. We need to understand the true spirit of these festivals and we should try to bring back the past glory of country. Let us never think what the country has given us or what did the country do for us but let us think what we can give to our nation or do for our nation.

Before I conclude, I would like to remind you all some of the great initiatives like 'Swachch Bharat Abhiyaan' and demonetization of 500 and 1000 currency notes by our beloved Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi. As a part of 'Swach Bharat Abhiyan', let us strive for the cleanliness of our classrooms and the school premises. If each one of us walk one step ahead towards cleanliness (ek kadam swachta ki aur), we are sure to build a cleaner nation in the coming years. So also let us strive to uproot corruption from our country and rebuild a corruption-free India. The day is not far away, when we can proudly say that ours is a corruption-free country. I wish to conclude my speech by these words of re-dedicating ourselves to the nation,

Thank you

Jai Hind!

Lyrics and meaning of Brahmamokkate Parabrahmamokkate

This Keertana is one of the best and most popular compositions of Saint Annamayya in which he describes the universal truth of oneness and omnipresence of God in all the creatures alike. The Keertana is sung in Bouli / Mayamalava Goula Ragam.

Tandanana Ahi Tandanana Pure Tandanana Bhala Tandanana
Brahmamokkate Parabrahma Mokkate Prabrahmamokkate Prabrahmamokkate

The word 'tandanana' is a slang used in the local folklore to give a rhythmic punch to the folk music. While the words 'ahi' 'pure' and 'bhala' are words of appreciation in the local language (different dialects of Telugu). The second line describes the oneness of God.

"Mangalyam tantunanena mama jeevana hetuna, kanthe badhnami subhage tvam jeeva sarada satam"

These are the two most important chanting in Indian Hindu weddings.

Wedding (Vivah / Vivaham in Sanskrit), is a highly sacred event in Hindu culture. It is a life long commitment between a man and a woman. Vivaham is one of the 16 samskaras. Brahmacharya (youth) of a man ends with marriage and his Grihastasramam (family life) begins.

Hindu weddings involve various ceremonial / procedural events which are almost similar in all regions with slight variations. The events take place in the form of prayers, invocations and vows that are recited in Sanskrit. The prayers are power-packed with in-depth meaning and describe the strong bondage between husband and wife who are united in the presence of Panch Bhoota i.e the five elements of Earth, in a ritualistic manner.
