Constitution Day

A Day to Remember

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high….
The Nation marked 26 November as Constitution Day (Samvidhan Divas) – a day to honour the 308 members of the Constituent Assembly spearheaded by Dr. B R Ambedkar; a day to recall the colossal contribution of our founding fathers who envisaged the needs of the massive differences of the people of India; and a day to re-iterate our promise to uphold the tenets of the longest Constitution of the largest democracy of the world.

As India celebrates the 71st Constitution Day, the management and staff of SJBHS celebrated through online platforms. The contribution of Rev Fr Jerome D’Souza, a Jesuit priest who was a part of the erudite Constituent Assembly, was remembered.

Role play and skits brought out our rights and duties, our liberties and responsibilities. Through songs, the stakeholders of SJBHS recollected the vision of a country with Sovereign, Socialist, Secular, Democratic, Republic ideals. The words of the Preamble were read loud and clear to re-iterate our solidarity with the principles of justice, liberty, equality and fraternity for all Indians. The recitation of Rabindranath Tagore’s famous poem ‘Where the mind is without fear…’ reminded us of pre-Independent India and the struggles that paved the way for our freedom.

Our Principal Fr Sunil Fernandes SJ called the Constitution a comprehensive guide, given by the people to themselves. It, thus, becomes mandatory that we fight to uphold our rights and democratic ideals as well as treat everyone with respect. In conclusion, Fr Principal advised that we should re-affirm our pledge to follow the Constitution in letter and in spirit – a reminder that the students had to adopt the tenets of the Constitution during their schooling years itself.
