Happy Republic Day India

60 years ago when the world questioned the framework of India, when they talked about independence of princely states, when nations were created based on religious partitions and questioned the concept of one Bharath, India adopted a secular, democratic and republic constitution. A constitution that guaranteed equal rights to majority and minorities and to Men and Women. A constitution that gave freedom of religious practice, right to speak and right to vote and a constitution that abolished untouchability and titles. It reiterated that Bharath was always one nation be it south, north, east or west or composed of hundreds of quasi independent states. After 60 years we have to salute our visionary leaders that penned down one fact that its not the riches of a few, or one language or one religion and one culture but the real wealth of a nation is in the freedom of its people. The constitution of India was a slap on the face of those who talked about religious division and unilateralism, as Indians that we all should be proud of. A poem to salute the Indian constitution:

Toot ke jaane waale bikhar gaye aur bikhar rahe hain!
Azaad nisha ke Bharathwasi ek rahe the ek rahe hain!!

While we have a lot to be proud of on India's Republic Day, we also have to remember that we still have a long way to go. The youth of our country are the ones who can help India reach a point where every child is educated, and every person has food to eat; where health care and clean water are available to every citizen.

Help a young person have a brighter future at GiveIndia.
