Constitution Day Assembly
“So far as the government is concerned, there is only one holy book, which is the Constitution of India.” Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India
The Constitution of India is the supreme law of India. It lays down the framework for defining fundamental political principles, establishes the structure, procedures, powers and duties of government institutions and sets out fundamental rights, directive principles and duties of the citizens.
The Constitution Day, also known as Samvidhan Divas, is celebrated in India on 26th November every year to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution of India. On this day in 1949, the Constituent Assembly of India adopted the Constitution of India, and it came into effect on 26 January 1950.
DPS Noida organized a special assembly to celebrate the Constitution Day on November 25, 2016 in which the students were informed about the nuances of the Constitution.
To mark this occasion, the students collectively read out the Preamble. The Fundamental Rights and Duties were also recited, emphasizing on the dream of ‘India Shining’ that the makers of our constitution had strived to attain.
As citizens of India, we all must be aware of the basic provisions of the Constitution and the rights we have and duties that we should perform. The Constitution is not something which was granted to us, but something our ancestors earned through determination and sacrifice. It is a symbol of our victory over those who had dominated us, and is a beacon of unity as well as of law and order.
The students in the assembly also bid farewell to the delegation of 30 students from Denmark who were accompanied by their teachers. In the 10 day visit of the foreign students the Dipsites opened their homes and hearts. They forged bonds of love and friendship through trips and excursions, and many other interesting activities that enabled the students from both the countries to know about each other’s culture.The bond was strengthened as these youngsters shared the stage in vibrant attires and danced to the tune of popular Hindi songs.
Mrs. KaaminiBhasin, Principal DPS Noida, reiterated the importance of our Constitution in her address, calling it the book of reference which reminds us of our fundamental rights and duties and that we must remember our duties before our rights. The Principal also congratulated the students and teachers for their efforts in making the exchange programme a successful and a memorable one.The assembly concluded with the National Anthems of the two partners, Denmark and India.
