How has the meaning of Republic Day changed for you over the years?

The meaning of Republic Day has not changed for me in all these years. I still believe in equality. In fact it has become more concrete over the years and I am sure that our future generations will also take it forward.

What does the Indian Constitution mean to you?

The Indian Constitution is the supreme law of India and we as the citizens of the country shall obey and abide by it.

What are your fondest memories of the Republic Day celebrations?

The most precious memories are from school. We used to do assemblies in school for all the grades. We will sing the national anthem and participate in the flag hoisting ceremony. Then some light refreshments will be served and we will be given rest for the rest of the day.
