Everything comes at a cost, especially freedom. It comes at the cost of lives, struggles, years, memories, joy, family, peace, and time. However, the end objective of all the actions is to gain freedom and liberty. It is an inherent spirit of an organism to live in autonomy. Sometimes, it could be a single moment, sometimes it could be years of struggle to gain control of one’s life state. No matter how hard it is to establish liberty, irrespective of the stakes, even the most innocent minds and fumbling hearts revolt against slavery, dominion, and dictatorship. They are the bravest individuals who fight continually to establish a better living for others, consciously aware that they might never be able to experience the fruits borne of their struggles. But it is the idea of the nation, the compassion for the fellow countrymen, the vision for a better future that encourages them to take a chance, even if it’s one, to take those odds.
We now celebrate the fruition of all those hardships endured by our forefathers. We take pride in our history, mourn the sacrifices made, and cherish the freedom we have won against years of oppression. It is the day we won the right to govern ourselves and not by any colonial state; the day we decided to be ruled by law and not fear; the day we gain sovereignty; the day we become the Republic of India and give ourselves the Constitution to represent ourselves and for ourselves. It has been 73 years since we made a tryst with destiny then.
Like the butterfly effect, a small change with the intent of independence has resulted in a revolution for self-governance that resulted in the rebirth of India as the largest democracy in the world.
India was decreed as an independent nation on August 15th, 1947, by Lord Louis Mountbatten, the last Governor-General of India, to mark the second anniversary of Japan’s submission to the Allied Powers due to World War II. At that juncture, India did not have its own Constitution. Instead, the laws were rooted in the common law system. They were merely an enhanced version of the Government of India Act of 1935 under British legislation.
A Drafting Committee was appointed to draft the Constitution, chaired by Dr. BR Ambedkar. The Constitution was ready and finally adopted on November 26th, 1949, celebrated as ‘Constitution Day.’ The Constitution of India finally came into effect on January 26th, 1950, to mark twenty years of the ‘Poorna Swaraj’ (self-rule) movement. Today the Constitution of India is the longest written constitution in the world.
The Republic Day enforces that choice, not chance, determines our destiny. Therefore, it is not the day but the spirit we must reminisce about. And what can elevate the spirit more than karaoke?
