Republic Day

Muted Celebrations

The 72nd Republic Day was celebrated in the shadow of the pandemic, and with most students still out of school, the festivities were muted. However, the significance of the day, the spirit of the celebrations and the fervour of patriotism was on display.

At the very onset, the Indian flag was hoisted amid social distancing and other SOP’s. The salute and National Anthem followed with full pride and honour, as the unfurled flag proudly fluttered in the cool morning breeze.

At SJBHS, every occasion is a prospect for a new learning. The Republic Day highlighted the differences between Constitution Day and Republic Day; put into perspective the achievements of the Indian Presidents over the years; and staff answered questions pertaining to Republic Day and its celebration.

Patriotic songs, in a number of languages, not only broadcasted an air of festivity but also spotlighted the multilingual assortment among the Indians, the pride in our cultural heritage and the fact that ‘unity in diversity’ is the underlying strength of this great nation.

Our Principal, Fr Sunil Fernandes SJ, in his message said that the longest Constitution of the largest democracy of the world came into force on 26 January 1950 to protect and nurture India’s freedom as well as to make the voices of its people heard and respected. Despite our differences, trials and tribulations we remain a united nation. Thus, the onus of upholding the constitutional values lies with each citizen.
