Welcome Speech for Republic Day
Good morning to one and all present here. I am here to present a welcome speech. As we all know that we have gathered here on a very special occasion for a democratic country “India”. Today’s day is the 72nd Republic Day of our beloved country India. Warm Greetings and a very warm welcome to all of you present here, with special mention to our Hon’ble principal, vice-principal, and respected teachers. I will share my views through my Welcome Speech on Republic Day. I would like to say a lot of thanks, my Principal Madam, as just because of her I have got such a wonderful opportunity to come on this stage and speak about my beloved country on such auspicious occasion of Republic day.
India is a self-governing country since 15thof August 1947, after getting freedom from the British Rule. That day we are celebrating Independence Day every year on the 15th of August in 1947. However, the constitution of India came into existence on the 26th of January in 1950 and hence making our country a full-fledged republic. This day is often celebrated with colorfully organized culture events held in every part of our country. The streets hum with patriotic songs with true spirits are found in every heart as they share in the celebrations.
Republic means the highest authority and power in the country is the people living in the country. The only the public has the right to elect their representative political leaders to lead the country based on the constitution in the right direction. The constitution has encouraged all citizens to have equal social and economic rights.
Our Great Indian freedom fighters have struggled a lot and sacrificed their lives to get the “Purna Swaraj” means “Complete Freedom” in India. There are uncountable freedom fighters like Mahatma Gandhi, Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chandra Bose, Chandra Shekher Ajad, Lala Lajpat Rai, Sardar Ballabh Bhai Patel and many more. Each and every citizen of this country must remember them on such a great occasion.
Our first Indian President Dr. Rajendra Prasad said that we have found the whole of this vast land brought together under the jurisdiction of one constitution, one union. It takes over responsibility for the welfare of all men and women living in it. But, unfortunately, we are still fighting with crime, corruption, violence, and terrorism in our country. These nation-wide problems are pulling our nation back from going to the path of development and progress.
Therefore, there is a need to unite again to save our country from such indirect slavery. We should be aware of social evils such as poverty, unemployment, illiteracy, global warming, inequality, etc. Other than celebrating the national glory and recalling the achievements of our motherland, we should also take a pledge to eradicate the social evils from our society which is the big hurdle in the way of our country’s progress.
We all should take an oath to maintain the sovereignty of our nation. This sovereignty is priceless. With these humble words, I bow my head to the flag with the words “Jai Hind, Jai Bharat”.
