Republic Day Speech In English (sample)

Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen, first of all, I would like to wish you a very Happy Republic Day. It is an important day for all the Indians. Today when a few fellow Indians talk about the fear of losing basic rights that the constitution has given us, this day becomes more important. Although we celebrate republic day as a national festival since our childhood, we understand the real importance of this day when we grow up.

Gantantra Diwas is celebrated on 26th January every year. On this day in the year 1950, the Constitution of India came into effect. Our constitution gives us various rights and responsibilities too. We live in a democratic country where people enjoy their fundamental rights. In society, we have different castes, religions, and many other things that separate us but on a broader picture, we all are Indians. India is a land that is a great example of “Unity in Diversity”. The beauty of our country is we have a different languages and we also have conflicts and differences but on national festivals, we all stand as a united force. 

Republic Day Speech in Hindi

Since childhood, 26th January has been a memorable day for all of us. Many of us may recall this day as a festival and celebrates it in schools by participating in cultural programs and in other activities. For a few of us, this is the day we get up to watch the republic day parade. The military parade starts from Vijay Chowk and culminates at the Red Fort in the national capital i.e. Delhi.   The weapons and the equipment that the army shows in the parade reflect the power of our arm forces. 

On this day the award and medals of bravery are also given to the armed forces and to civilians too. The main attraction for the bravery awards is the young kids who are awarded by the prime minister for showing ultimate bravery.  When the helicopters of the arms forces fly past the parade area and shower rose petals on the audience everyone feels special. The program ends with the national anthem. Whether you are at home or watching the parade personally you get up to give respect to the national anthem. It’s a day that makes us think beyond caste, creed, religion, state, language, and colour and we all feel the same emotion of loving our country.

Republic Day Speech for Kids (sample)

Respected Principal, Teachers, and all my dear friends.

Today I am standing in front of you to deliver a speech on Republic Day. Before moving forward, I would like to wish you all who are present here a Happy Republic Day.

I am so enthralled when my class teacher told me a few days back that you have been selected to deliver a speech on the 26th of January. I am excited but a bit nervous also because I never gave a speech earlier in my school life.

As you all know today we have gathered here to celebrate the auspicious day of Republic day which we also knew as “Gantantra Divas” and as we all know that on this day in 1950, our full constitution came into effect. However, it was adopted on the 26th of November 1949 under the chairmanship of our beloved Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar and we all know him as a father of the Indian Constitution, he is one of the greatest leaders of modern India at that time.

It’s a Gazetted holiday but schools remain open to organize different functions in their school just as we are doing. Students perform several cultural activities and sing patriotic songs to remember our freedom fighters and celebrate the big day.

Our principal sir hoist, the national flag similarly, the president of India hoists the flag at Rajpath and every year they invited special chief guests from a different country.

On the eve of republic day, our president gave a speech in the name of the Nation.

The president of India gave some important awards like Ashoka Chakra and Kirti Chakra to the soldiers of India and bravery awards to the citizens of India.

  Introduction, Free Samples & Templates

In every school, college, and government office we celebrate this day with zeal and enthusiasm.

But the biggest celebration is observed at the Rajpath in New Delhi. Where thousands of people gathered to watch the RDC parade. Chief guests from different countries of the world is invited to witness the celebration every year. The main attraction of the parade is the tableau of the selected states through which they showcase the culture and tradition of their states. The preparation for this parade started at least six months before republic day. Artists, and students from different parts of the country participate in this celebration to make it memorable and grand one.

But when our soldiers came with their battalion and all of their arms and ammunition in the parade, the audience gets goosebumps and fill pride at the same time.

And at last, when our air force fighter pilots came with their jets and create our national flag tricolour in the sky it becomes such a proud moment for every Indian.

It’s the day when you can hear patriotic songs in every nook and corner of our street and everyone celebrates this day with brotherhood and all distribute sweets.

When our constitution came into effect we have some common issues and still today we are also facing some common issues like cleanliness, education, unemployment, and many others to resolve them government also launched some schemes like swatch Bharat Abhiyan, Beti padhao Beti Bachao, skill India, make in India and many more but we cannot depend fully on the shoulders of our government we need to do something for our country and we all must take a step to make a better and stronger Nation

We must keep the ideas which were mentioned in the constitution of India which are Justice for everyone, Equality, Liberty, Fraternity, and sovereignty we should not forget the ideas of our Gandhi Bapu and we need to implement their ideas in our life so that we make our nation strong.

So let’s take a pledge that we all will maintain peace and harmony and must remember the sacrifices of our freedom fighters so that we can value the freedom which we got just because of their sacrifices. Before I conclude my speech I would like to say “patriotism is just like charity it must begin at home”

!!!!Jai Hind and Vande Mataram!!!!

26th January Speech For Students in English (Sample)

Good Morning respected principal, teachers, and my dear friends. My Name is (Your name), studying in Class (Your class name), wish to give a speech on the Republic Day celebration.

On this occasion of Republic day, I would like to thank my class teacher for giving me an opportunity to speak about Republic Day.  Today we all are gathered here to celebrate the 73rd Republic Day of our Nation.

On 26th January 1950, our country got its constitution. We got our independence on 15th August 1947 but before 26th January 1950, we were following the law and rules set by the British. Since 26th January 1950, we have had our own rules and law that are implemented for all Indians.    

The constitution we have today has come into existence after many debates and amendments. On 26 November 1949, the drafting committee of the constitution was formed and Dr B. R. Ambedkar was appointed as the chairperson of the committee. After a debate in both houses, the constitution came into existence and we became a republic country. Republic means that the citizen of the country holds the supreme power to elect representatives. Constitution gives all of us the same right despite any difference of religion, colour, or language.

A grand celebration of Republic day is held in the Capital of India, Delhi. On this day, ceremonial parades take place at the Rajpath in presence of the President. The celebration starts at the gates of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. The President of India unfurls the National flag and addresses the nation with a Republic Day speech.

जैसा की आप सभी जानते हैं कि यह एक राष्ट्रीय त्यौहार हैं और हम सभी एक भारतीय होने के नाते इसे मनाते हैं.  अन्य धार्मिक उत्सवों की तरह राष्ट्रीय उत्सवों का भी अपना महत्व होता है | आज के दिन 1950 भारत को अपना सविंधान मिला था और इसी उपलक्ष्य में हर वर्ष २६ जनवरी को गणतंत्र दिवस हर्षोल्लास के साथ मनाया जाता है |

यह
तो सभी को ज्ञात है कि पहले हमारा देश पराधीन था और यहाँ अंग्रेजों(British) का राज था. गुलामी के समय हम लोगों
को अंग्रेजों के कानून नियम व कायदे मानने होते थे. भारतीयों को अंग्रेज हेय
द्रष्टि से देखते थे. भारतीयों को अपने ही देश में कोई अधिकार प्राप्त नहीं था. अंग्रेज
भारतीयों पर अनेक प्रकार से अत्याचार करते थे । जिसके फलस्वरूप देश के युवा,
बुधिजीवी व आम जन मानस ने  स्वतंत्रता के
लिए संग्राम शुरू कर दिया ।

विविधता में एकता दिखाने के लिए विभिन्न राज्यों द्वारा भारतीय संस्कृति और परंपरा
का एक बड़ा प्रदर्शन इस दिन किया जाता है. गणतंत्र दिवस की परेड में भारतीय सेना
का शक्ति प्रदर्शन देश के लोगों को सुरक्षित होने का आश्वासन देता हैं.

Republic Day Speech For Teacher (Sample)

First of all, I would like to say thanks to the respected guest who came here to encourage us and the students despite having a busy schedule. I would like to say thanks to the principal, my colleagues, and all the students who have participated in today’s program.  As we all know that today our country is celebrating ‘Republic Day’. On this day back in 1950, our constitution came into force. The constitution is like a religious book for a country and we need to give it the same respect as we give to our religious book.

As our religious books tell us what should we do and what actions we should avoid, in the same way, constitution of India suggests to us what should we do as a citizen of the country and what actions we need to avoid. As we have some rules and regulations in schools in the same way we have to follow some regulations to be in this country.

Our constitution has given us a few responsibilities and a few rights too. As both rights and responsibilities come together so we are expected to fulfil the responsibility as a citizen first before claiming our rights. Like you have the right to get an education but you also carry the responsibility to be an obedient student.

Many top leaders play a prominent role in the preparation of the constitution of India. Dr B. R. Ambedkar was the chairman of the constitution drafting committee. At that time when India had many social issues like casteism and others, the constitution gave the right to equality. When the country was facing riots and witnessed the partition based on religion our constitution-makers chose to make India a republic and democratic country. We all are proud of the equality we get here and it’s given to us by our constitution. So, happy republic day, celebrate this day as a festival because on this day India became a republic country.

Republic Day Speech in English (sample)

I am feeling so lucky that I am standing in front of you because there are so many contenders who wanted to give a speech on the auspicious day of the 26th of January. I am not a good orator so please pardon me if I do any mistakes…

I can see some faces in the crowd that is not looking so happy because they are hoping that now I am going to give them a lecture on the 26th of January but you don’t need to worry because I am not going to give you any lecture on Republic Day. After all, it’s a day of celebration, it’s a day of birth of our constitution.

But its republic day so I will put some interesting facts in
front of you

Republic day! when you heard this word what was the first
thing that came to your mind

Tell me honestly!

Yeah some of them are whispering holiday-holiday…

  Speech On Human Rights Day for Students and Children in English

You know I still remember that day…

When I was just 10 years old and I don’t know anything about Republic Day…

Why do we celebrate it? And why it comes on the 26th of January every year…

Like others earlier it was also a holiday for me too…

But one day on the 26th of January when I was
playing outside my father calls me and asks that…

Why you didn’t go to your school today?

I said it’s a holiday… they ask me why?

I said it was republic day…

They told me do you know what was that (Republic Day)?

I nodded my head and said no…

Then my father told me about the day when our freedom fighters fight for our independence and so many of them sacrifice their life and then how we got independence and how our constitution was formed and how our republic day came into effect on the 26th of January 1950.

And very next year my father took me to Delhi for the RDC (Republic Day celebration) and I got to know more about it there… because visuals teach us more

And look today we are celebrating the 73rd Republic Day and to celebrate this important day we came a long way….

Does anyone know when our constitution was adopted by the Indian
constituent assembly?

Anyone…!

Must be you forget it….

Ok, let me remind you once again… it was adopted on the 26th of November 1949 and came into effect on the 26th Jan 1950.

Ok, do you know under whose chairmanship our full
constitution was drafted?

Yes, it’s Dr B.R. Ambedkar and you know some of their friends called him Babasaheb.

Every year we celebrated the grand Republic day in New Delhi
at Rajpath and a special chief guest was also invited for the day.

The event of republic day started with the arrival of the President of India whom we also called the first citizen of India then our national anthem played and after that 21 gun salutes are also given in honour but…

Do you know they didn’t fire the salutes with 21 canons instead of that they fired three times with 7 canons of the Indian Army which was known as “25 Ponders” and interestingly fired a match with the national anthem

Now may I ask you something…?

Does anyone know what the previous name of Rajpath was?

Hmm seems like I had delivered a googly this time…

Rajpath previous name is “King’s Way”

And this year also India has invited Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro

Ok let me check your general knowledge now does anyone know
who is our first-ever chief guest in RDC

Deep silences hmm…

Ok do not stare at me it’s the President of Indonesia, Dr. Sukarno

From our childhood, I have learned that there are six
fundamental rights in our constitution

  • Right to equality
  • Right to freedom
  • Right against exploitation
  • Right to freedom of religion
  • Cultural and educational rights
  • And a right to constitutional remedies

But a few years back they added one more to the list do you know what was it?

  • It was right to education

We are adding the right to education but we are not able to
teach our kids about our independence… our constitution

Most of them don’t know why we celebrate these days and
even…

Some of them can’t differentiate between republic day and Independence Day

Our ancestor fought for independence but today’s generation don’t know anything about them

Do you know Bhagat Singh left his home at the age of just 13 and dies for the freedom of our country when he was just 23…?

You should ask a question to yourself have you done anything
in your life for your country

We all parents need to take our children at a young age to such places where they can learn about our country, especially on Republic Day and Independence Day.

So that they can tell their next generation about our
country and the importance of Republic Day and Independence Day

Must tell them it’s not a holiday because someone has to pay
off their life for this day

Every school and college must celebrate this day full of joy
just as they celebrate their convocation… fresher party… and farewell party

So that every child must wait for this day desperately every
year

Let us remain this day republic day, not a holiday

Now I have to sign off but before doing that I recall the
famous quote of “Mark Twain” he said…

“Indian is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand-mother of tradition. Our most valuable and most astrictive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only”!

“We are the Indian firstly
and lastly”

– By B. R Ambedkar

Jai Hind…. Vande Mataram…
