Short Speech on Republic Day in English for Students

My greetings to all of you on this Republic day. I am here to present a speech on this auspicious day. I am glad to get a chance to speak about my country today.

Republic day is the day when the constitution of India came into effect. Our constitution, that gives us fundamental rights to live lives of our choice and reminds us of our fundamental duties towards our nation.

As we all have gathered here today on our 71st Republic day, I would like to remind you that our freedom and our constitution didn’t come easy to us. It was millions who fought for our republic nation and hundreds who actually worked, debated each clause before giving a constitution to our people.

The word ‘Republic’ means supreme power. The republic day symbolizes the day when our nation got the supreme power to enjoy the right to elect the representative to lead and run the country. In the republic India, every citizen enjoys equal rights irrespective of status and gender he/she belongs to.

We should be proud of our nation and its achievements. This is an occasion to reaffirm our commitment to unity and diversity, fraternity and equality amongst all citizens.

Let’s have a minute of silence for those great souls who fought for us and made us proud citizens of India. May their memories always remain in our heart and they will be remembered every year.

Jai Hind. Jai Hind. Jai Hind.

Thank you, everyone, for showing patience and listening to me.
