Republic Day Speech In English (sample)

Good Morning, Ladies and Gentlemen; first of all, I wish you a very Happy Republic Day. It is an important day for all the Indians. Today, when a few fellow Indians talk about the fear of losing basic rights that the constitution has given us, this day becomes more important. Although we have celebrated Republic Day as a national festival since our childhood, we understand the real importance of this day when we grow up.

Gantantra Diwas is celebrated on 26th January every year. On this day in 1950, the Constitution of India came into effect. Our constitution gives us various rights and responsibilities, too. We live in a democratic country where people enjoy their fundamental rights. In society, we have different castes, religions, and many other things that separate us, but on a broader picture, we all are Indians. India is a land that is a great example of “Unity in Diversity”. The beauty of our country is we have different languages, and we also have conflicts and differences, but on national festivals, we all stand as a united force. 

Republic Day Speech in Hindi

Since childhood, 26th January has been a memorable day for all of us. Many of us may recall this day as a festival and celebrate it in schools by participating in cultural programs and other activities. For a few of us, this is the day we get up to watch the Republic Day parade. The military parade starts from Vijay Chowk and culminates at the Red Fort in the national capital i.e. Delhi. The weapons and the army’s equipment in the parade reflect the power of our armed forces. 

On this day, awards and medals of bravery are also given to the armed forces and to civilians too. The main attraction for the bravery awards is the young kids who are awarded by the prime minister for showing ultimate bravery.  When the helicopters of the armed forces fly past the parade area, and shower rose petals on the audience, everyone feels special. The program ends with the national anthem. Whether you are at home or watching the parade personally, you get up to give respect to the national anthem. It’s a day that makes us think beyond caste, creed, religion, state, language, and colour, and we all feel the same emotion of loving our country.

This was our first speech, you can say, on 26th January, Republic Day. Let’s move to our next Republic Day speech that is made for kids/students.


Republic Day Speech for Kids (sample)

Respected Principal, Teachers, and all my dear friends.

Today, I am standing in front of you to deliver a speech on Republic Day. Before moving forward, I would like to wish all of you who are present here a Happy Republic Day.

I was so enthralled when my class teacher told me a few days back that you have been selected to deliver a speech on the 26th of January. I am excited but a bit nervous also because I never gave a speech earlier in my school life.

As you all know, today we have gathered here to celebrate the auspicious day of Republic Day, which we also know as “Gantantra Divas”, and as we all know, on this day in 1950, our full constitution came into effect. However, it was adopted on the 26th of November 1949 under the chairmanship of our beloved Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar, and we all know him as the father of the Indian Constitution; he was one of the greatest leaders of modern India at that time.

It’s a Gazetted holiday, but schools remain open to organize different functions in their school just as we are doing. Students perform several cultural activities and sing patriotic songs to remember our freedom fighters and celebrate the big day.

Our principal hoists the national flag; similarly, the president of India hoists the flag at Rajpath, and every year, they invite special chief guests from different countries.

On the eve of Republic Day, our president gave a speech in the name of the Nation.

The president of India gave some important awards like Ashoka Chakra and Kirti Chakra to the soldiers of India and bravery awards to the citizens of India.

Every school, college, and government office celebrates this day with zeal and enthusiasm.

But the biggest celebration is observed at the Rajpath in New Delhi. Where thousands of people gathered to watch the RDC parade. Chief guests from different world countries are invited to witness the celebration every year. The parade’s main attraction is the tableau of the selected states through which they showcase the culture and tradition of their states. The preparation for this parade started at least six months before Republic Day. Artists and students from different parts of the country participate in this celebration to make it memorable and grand.

But when our soldiers came with their battalion and all of their arms and ammunition in the parade, the audience got goosebumps and fill pride at the same time.

And at last, when our Air Force fighter pilots came with their jets and created our national flag tricolour in the sky, it became such a proud moment for every Indian.

It’s the day you can hear patriotic songs in every nook and corner of our street, and everyone celebrates this day with brotherhood and distributing sweets.

When our constitution came into effect, we had some common issues and still today, we are also facing some common issues like cleanliness, education, unemployment, and many others to resolve their government also launched some schemes like Swatch Bharat Abhiyan, Beti padhao Beti Bachao, skill India, make in India and many more but we cannot depend fully on the shoulders of our government we need to do something for our country and we all must take a step to make a better and stronger Nation.

We must keep the ideas that were mentioned in the constitution of India, which are justice for everyone, equality, liberty, fraternity, and sovereignty. We should not forget the ideas of our Gandhi Bapu, and we need to implement them in our lives to make our nation strong.

So let’s take a pledge that we all will maintain peace and harmony and must remember the sacrifices of our freedom fighters so that we can value the freedom which we got just because of their sacrifices. Before I conclude my speech, I would like to say, “Patriotism is just like charity; it must begin at home.”

!!!!Jai Hind and Vande Mataram!!!!

Republic Day Speech For Students

All the national festivals are very special for all the Indians, but during school days, their charm is different. In schools, the preparation to celebrate national festivals starts before a few weeks.  Teachers and students both work hard to make the national festival a memorable day for the school, guests, and students. Soon, the first national festival of 2023 will come, and most of the students must have started their preparation for this day.

As you already know we all celebrate the 26th of January as Republic Day because, on the same day in 1950, the constitution of India was implemented. From 26th January 1950 onwards India has its own rules and law. Celebrating Republic Day and other national festivals at the school level is important. When kids go to school, they get curious to know more about everything. If you give them education and information on nationalism, they will surely love their country and become ideal citizens.

National festivals are also important to celebrate in schools because they allow students to perform their art on the stage. You can participate in singing, dancing, and sports activities or deliver a speech on 26th January. If you want to throw a Republic Day speech, we have some help for you. Though in a speech, you will have to speak your mind, there is nothing wrong with getting help from others. Here, we have compiled a few points that you can include in your speech. Before delivering and compiling a Republic Day speech,, you must remember that having eye contact with people sitting in the hall/ audience is very important.

26th January Speech For Students in English (Sample)

Good Morning, respected principal, teachers, and my dear friends. My name is (Your name), I am studying in class (Your class name), and I wish to give a speech on the Republic Day celebration.

On this occasion of Republic Day, I would like to thank my class teacher for allowing me to speak about Republic Day.  Today, we are all gathered here to celebrate the 76th Republic Day of our nation.

On 26th January 1950, our country got its constitution. We got our independence on 15th August 1947, but before 26th January 1950, we followed the British laws and rules. Since 26th January 1950, we have had our own rules and laws that are implemented for all Indians.    

Our constitution has come into existence after many debates and amendments. On 26 November 1949, the drafting committee of the constitution was formed and Dr B. R. Ambedkar was appointed chairperson of the committee. After a debate in both houses, the constitution came into existence, and we became a republic country. A republic means that the country’s citizens hold supreme power to elect representatives. The Constitution gives all of us the same rights despite differences in religion, colour, or language.

A grand celebration of Republic day is held in the Capital of India, Delhi. On this day, ceremonial parades take place at the Rajpath in the presence of the President. The celebration starts at the gates of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. The President of India unfurled the national flag and addressed the nation with a Republic Day speech. The prestigious awards of the country are also given to martyrs and heroes of the army and civilians on this day.

Republic Day Speech

सभी सरकारी व प्राइवेट दफ्तरों व स्कूलों में इस दिन झंडा फहराया जाता हैं. सभी भारतवासी आपसी मतभेदों को भुलकर इस दिन को एक भारतीय होने के नाते मनाते हैं. इस दिन आप देश कप लेकर व देश की   लोकतान्त्रिक व्यवस्था को लेकर अपने विचार भी अन्य लोगो के सामने रख सकते हैं. इस वर्ष भारत 72वां गणतंत्र दिवस मना रहा है।अगर आप इस अवसर पर भाषण देना चाहते हैं तो आप यहाँ दिए गये व्यव्क्त्वो से मदद ले सकते हैं.

Speech In Hindi (sample)

आप सभी को नमस्कार व गणतंत्र दिवस की शुभकामनाएं. मैं ______ सबसे पहले आप लोगों को हमारे साथ गणतंत्र दिवस मनाने के लिए धन्यवाद कहना चाहूँगा. आज 26 जनवरी को हम भारत के 75वा गणतंत्र दिवस मनाने के लिए एकत्रित हुए हैं.

जैसा की आप सभी जानते हैं कि यह एक राष्ट्रीय त्यौहार हैं और हम सभी एक भारतीय होने के नाते इसे मनाते हैं.  अन्य धार्मिक उत्सवों की तरह राष्ट्रीय उत्सवों का भी अपना महत्व होता है | आज के दिन 1950 भारत को अपना सविंधान मिला था और इसी उपलक्ष्य में हर वर्ष २६ जनवरी को गणतंत्र दिवस हर्षोल्लास के साथ मनाया जाता है |

यह तो सभी को ज्ञात है कि पहले हमारा देश पराधीन था और यहाँ अंग्रेजों(British) का राज था. गुलामी के समय हम लोगों को अंग्रेजों के कानून नियम व कायदे मानने होते थे. भारतीयों को अंग्रेज हेय द्रष्टि से देखते थे. भारतीयों को अपने ही देश में कोई अधिकार प्राप्त नहीं था. अंग्रेज भारतीयों पर अनेक प्रकार से अत्याचार करते थे । जिसके फलस्वरूप देश के युवा, बुधिजीवी व आम जन मानस ने  स्वतंत्रता के लिए संग्राम शुरू कर दिया ।

अंत में 15 अगस्त 1947 को भारत को आज़ादी मिली और उसके  ढाई साल बाद 26 जनवरी 1950 को भारत डेमोक्रेटिक रिपब्लिक बना. यह दिन इसलिए अधिक महत्वपूर्ण हैं क्यूंकि 26 जनवरी 1950 से पहले भारतीय अंगेजों के बनाये हुए कानून को मानने के लिए विवश थे.

गणतंत्र का अर्थ है देश में रहने वाले लोगों को अपने प्रतिनिधियों को राजनीतिक नेता के रूप में चुनने का अधिकार, जोकि भारतीय सविंधान के अनुसार भारत की जनता के पास हैं.

भारत के सविंधान में] सभी नागरिकों के मूल कर्तव्यों, नियम और कानून का उल्लेख है. भारत में विविधता में एकता दिखाने के लिए विभिन्न राज्यों द्वारा भारतीय संस्कृति और परंपरा का एक बड़ा प्रदर्शन इस दिन किया जाता है. गणतंत्र दिवस की परेड में भारतीय सेना का शक्ति प्रदर्शन देश के लोगों को सुरक्षित होने का आश्वासन देता हैं.

अंत में  इस भाषण को समाप्त करने से पहले, मैं आप सभी को गणतंत्र दिवस के बारे में अपनी भावनाओं को व्यक्त करने का मौका देने के लिए धन्यवाद देना चाहता हूं व आप सभी को गणतंत्र दिवस की हार्दिक बधाई भी देना चाहता हूँ.

Republic Day Speech for Teachers in English

It is an important day for all of us, but for teachers, the significance of this day is a bit more. Being a teacher is a responsible job, and it is not just their duty but a responsibility to tell the students about the importance of Republic Day and other national festivals.

On this day, cultural programs are organized in schools. The main motive for celebrating Republic Day in school is to tell them about the Constitution and its importance and introduce them to the mindset of our great leaders who played an important role in making and implementing the Constitution of India.

To tell the students about 26th January, the Republic Day teachers are asked to deliver a speech on this day. Being a teacher, you need to deliver an impressive speech, and it should be informative, too. So here we have compiled a speech for you. You can take help from this to deliver a great speech to your students on Republic Day.


Republic Day Speech For Teacher (Sample)

First of all, I would like to say thanks to the respected guest who came here to encourage us and the students despite having a busy schedule. I want to say thanks to the principal, my colleagues, and all the students who have participated in today’s program.  As we all know, today our country is celebrating ‘Republic Day’. On this day back in 1950, our constitution came into force. The constitution is like a religious book for a country, and we need to give it the same respect as we give to our religious book.

As our religious books tell us what we should do and what actions we should avoid, in the same way, the constitution of India suggests to us what we should do as citizens of the country and what actions we need to avoid. We have some rules and regulations in schools, and in the same way, we have to follow some regulations to be in this country.

Our constitution has given us a few responsibilities and a few rights, too. As both rights and responsibilities come together, we are expected to fulfil the responsibility as a citizen first before claiming our rights. You have the right to get an education, but you also carry the responsibility to be an obedient student.

Many top leaders play a prominent role in the preparation of the constitution of India. Dr B. R. Ambedkar was the chairman of the constitution drafting committee. At that time, when India had many social issues like casteism and others, the constitution gave the right to equality. When the country was facing riots and witnessed the partition based on religion our constitution-makers chose to make India a republic and democratic country. We all are proud of the equality we get here, and it’s given to us by our constitution. So, happy Republic Day! Celebrate this day as a festival because, on this day, India became a republic country.

Republic Day Speech in English (sample)

I am feeling so lucky that I am standing in front of you because so many contenders wanted to give a speech on the auspicious day of the 26th of January. I am not a good orator, so please pardon me if I make any mistakes…

I can see some faces in the crowd that are not looking so happy because they are hoping that I am going to give them a lecture on the 26th of January, but you don’t need to worry because I am not going to give you any lecture on Republic Day. After all, it’s a day of celebration; it’s a day of the birth of our constitution.

But its Republic Day so I will put some interesting facts in front of you

Republic day! when you heard this word, what was the first thing that came to your mind

Tell me honestly!

Yeah, some of them are whispering holiday-holiday…

You know I still remember that day…

When I was just 10 years old and I didn’t know anything about Republic Day…

Why do we celebrate it? And why does it come on the 26th of January every year…

Like others earlier, it was also a holiday for me too…

But one day on the 26th of January, when I was playing outside, my father called me and asked me…

Why didn’t you go to school today?

I said it was a holiday… He asked me why.

I said it’s a Republic Day…

He asked me do you know what that was (Republic Day)?

I nodded my head and said no…

Then my father told me about the day when our freedom fighters fought for our independence, and so many of them sacrificed their lives, how we got independence, how our constitution was formed and how our republic day came into effect on the 26th of January 1950.

The very next year, my father took me to Delhi for the RDC (Republic Day celebration), and I got to know more about it there… because visuals teach us more

And look, today we are celebrating the 75th Republic Day, and to celebrate this important day, we have come a long way.

Does anyone know when the Indian constituent assembly adopted our constitution?


Must be you forget it….

Ok, let me remind you once again… it was adopted on the 26th of November 1949 and came into effect on the 26th Jan 1950.

OK, do you know under whose chairmanship our full constitution was drafted?

Yes, it’s Dr B.R. Ambedkar, and you know some of their friends called him Babasaheb.

Every year, we celebrated the grand Republic day in New Delhi at Rajpath, and a special chief guest was also invited for the day.

The event of Republic Day started with the arrival of the President of India, whom we also called the first citizen of India. Then our national anthem played, and after that, 21 gun salutes were also given in honour, but…

Do you know they didn’t fire the salutes with 21 canons? instead of that, they fired three times with 7 canons of the Indian Army, which was known as “25 Ponders”, and interestingly fired a match with the national anthem

Now, may I ask you something…?

Does anyone know what Rajpath’s previous name was?

Hmm, it seems like I had delivered a googly this time…

Rajpath previous name is “King’s Way”

And this year also, India has invited Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro

Ok let me check your general knowledge now. Does anyone know who is our first-ever chief guest in RDC

Deep silences, hmm…

Ok, do not stare at me. It’s the President of Indonesia, Dr Sukarno

From our childhood, I have learned that there are six fundamental rights in our constitution

  • Right to equality
  • Right to freedom
  • Right against exploitation
  • Right to freedom of religion
  • Cultural and educational rights
  • And a right to constitutional remedies

But a few years back they added one more to the list do you know what was it?

We are adding the right to education but we are not able to teach our kids about our independence… our constitution

Most of them don’t know why we celebrate these days, and even…

Some of them can’t differentiate between Republic Day and Independence Day

Our ancestor fought for independence, but today’s generation don’t know anything about them

Do you know Bhagat Singh left his home at the age of just 13 and died for the freedom of our country when he was just 23…?

You should ask a question to yourself have you done anything in your life for your country

We all parents need to take our children at a young age to such places where they can learn about our country, especially on Republic Day and Independence Day.

So that they can tell the next generation about our country and the importance of Republic Day and Independence Day

Must tell them it’s not a holiday because someone has to pay off their life for this day

Every school and college must celebrate this day full of joy just as they celebrate their convocation… fresher party… and farewell party

So that every child must wait for this day desperately every year

Let us remain this day republic day, not a holiday

Now I have to sign off but before doing that I recall the famous quote by “Mark Twain” he said…

“Indian is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand-mother of tradition. Our most valuable and most astrictive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only”!

“We are the Indian firstly and lastly”

– By B. R Ambedkar

Jai Hind…. Vande Mataram…
