Constitution of India and Republic day.

Hi,
Today on 26th January 2014, I got a blog post update from Shekhar Kapur, the director, producer and actor who has contributed to movies such as "Bandit Queen", "Elizabeth"  and Wishwaroopam" and many more, through my subscription to his blog.

Here is what he wrote in his blog post:
CONSTITUTION OF INDIA
WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to 
constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR 
DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:  
JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;
and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity 
and integrity of the Nation;
IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this twenty-sixth day of 
November, 1949, do HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT AND GIVE TO 
OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION

On the occasion of Republic day of India, he has posted the exact words which were recited on the day when the Constitution of India was actually enacted i.e. 26th November 1949. I think this was a good way to congratulate Republic Day to our citizen by reminding them of the words which carried the aim of our constitution.
I thought this to be an important post so wanted to make it a post for my own blog. To all the Indians:
Happy Republic Day!

Thanks!
