The Constitution Day Celebration at School
The Constitution of India is the supreme law of India. The document lays down the framework defining fundamental political code, structure, procedures, powers and duties of government institutions and sets out fundamental rights, directive principles, and the duties of citizens. It is the longest written constitution of any country in the world. Dr. B.R.Ambedkar, Chairman of the Drafting Committee is widely considered to be its Chief Architect of the Indian Constitution.
The Constitution Day or Samvidhan Divas is celebrated every year in India on November 26 to commemorate the adoption of Constitution of India, and it came into effect on 26 January 1950. Previously this day was celebrated as “Law Day.”
In order to celebrate and generate awareness among students on fundamental rights and duties preserved in the Constitution, we had a special assembly on 26th November 2019.
On that day a mock parliament was conducted by the students during the assembly. A bill was going to be passed regarding the usage of mobile phones for children below the age group of 15 years. The ruling party read out their proposal of imposing legal restriction on the use of mobile phone by children. They also listed out the advantages and purpose of imposing such a restriction. The opposition party after hearing the proposal burst out expressing their disapproval. They said that such a decision will be counterproductive. There were opinions from other members speaking for and against the proposal.
After hearing the opinions the ruling party gave clarity on the proposal and said that it is not a ban on the usage but restriction to enter into some unauthorized sites, download certain applications, and use certain application only with the official consent of their parents. The speaker then expressed her opinion on the subject, especially on the advantages of passing such a bill. The members are asked to vote for and against the bill. Finally the bill is passed with the support of the majority.
By conducting such a programme on Constitution Day, the students got an awareness of the strength and spirit of our Constitution.
The Constitution Day celebration in our school was a remarkable and memorable one in all respect.
