The Constitution of India is the supreme governing document of India. It is the ultimate and final rule book by which the country is governed. It is the sacred text for the people of India and is seen with immense pride and honor. I am giving below three speeches on the national constitution of varied lengths for my readers.
Short and Long Speech on Constitution of India
Respected Principal Sir, honored guests, teachers, and my dear friends. I am greatly thankful to my class teacher for giving me this opportunity. Today, I am here to give a speech on the national constitution.
I know that you all are well learned and know more about the constitution than me. I am a little confused about where to begin, but still – the constitution is the supreme law that governs the country.
Such a big country as India with over 1.3 billion people, 28 states, and 8 Union Territories; needs definite rules and regulations to be governed. Right? It becomes more important, considering the fact that every state has a different culture and ethnicity. So, in this case there needs to be an unbiased and efficient government that doesn’t discriminate between the people on the basis of caste, creed, religion, or ethnicity.
Our constitution has laid down every minute procedure for running the country. Fundamental rights and powers of the situation; powers of the legislature, the judiciary, and the executive all are mentioned in the constitution.
It wouldn’t be possible to mention all the features of the constitution in such a short time. We must always follow the constitution with diligence and always abide by its provisions. Ji Hind!!
Respected Principal Sir, teachers, and my dear friends. I am here to give a speech on the national constitution of India. I am thankful to Principal Sir for giving this opportunity to me.
Indian constituent assembly had adopted the constitution on 26th November 1949; though, it came into effect only from 26th January 1950. Ladies and gentlemen, the constitution is the supreme law of India.
It lays down the fundamental procedure for running the state. It enshrines the duties and powers of the state and central governments; powers of the citizens; fundamental rights and privileges; powers and functioning of the three pillars of democracy – the executive, the judiciary, and the legislature. It has got everything in it, which is necessary to run the nation.
But, the drafting of the constitution wasn’t an easy task and it took almost three years for the draft to be completed. Many political leaders and visionaries have given their valuable time and labor for preparing the constitution.
Under the chairmanship of Babasaheb Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, the members of the drafting committee worked tirelessly for nearly thirty-six months to give the constitution its final shape.
Friends, it is our duty to have full faith in the constitution and follow every word of it with diligence. The constitution of India must be kept over everything else and should be followed with religious devotion.
It is in the constitution where our true power lies. Today we prosper, grow individually, and also as a nation just because the provisions for it have been laid down in the constitution.
From this dais may I request you all to make a pledge today? - That we will always abide by the constitution, and even put it before self. This would be the best tribute to the constitution and the people who were behind drafting it.
Good Morning to all of you present here. Respected seniors, honored guests, and my dear colleagues. I am glad for having given the opportunity to talk with you all on as important a subject as the Constitution.
We all know the distinguished features of our constitution – the largest handwritten constitution in the entire world; it is rigid and flexible as no other constitution, etc. But, today let us leave these features apart. From this dais I would like to share my views on the importance of the constitution. Like, in what state of affairs would we have been without it? We will try to understand that in the simplest way possible.
In my opinion the very need for the constitution has arisen from the need to be civilized. We live in a society that constitutes of all types of people, families, with different religious backgrounds and financial statuses. They all live together.
You would all agree that as there is an order in the family, similarly there must be order in the society. For that there needs to a certain set of rules to be followed, by everyone, so that to felicitate the functioning of the society and maintain order.
Similarly, like the family and the society, the nation also has to be governed by definite rules. Here comes the constitution in the picture. The Constitution of India is the supreme governing document for the people of India.
It has everything – the fundamental rights, privileges, and powers of the judiciary, executive, and the legislature – the three pillars of the democracy. Our constitution has every detail required to run the nation according to the conditions laid in it.
Without the constitution, it would be difficult to imagine how the nation will progress. Such a big country with so huge differences between its people in terms of religion, ethnicity, culture, financial backgrounds, etc. every state has a completely different culture from another and is run by a separate state government. Yet the central and state governments, function together in unison for the benefit of people and in the larger interest of the nation. It is possible only because the provisions for this have been laid down in the constitution.
One of the most important things mentioned in the constitution and which is worth mentioning is – it states the Union of India as a democratic republic. It states that the government of India is a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
In my opinion, this is the most significant mention in our constitution. It empowers the people of India and keeps them at the forefront. We have the privilege to change the government and also to question it on issues like corruption and inefficiency.
The constitution provides true meaning to democracy. We should be thankful to the people who drafted such an unbiased and effective constitution. People like Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, K.M. Munshi, Mohammad Saadulla, and others are names worth praise. They were in the constitution drafting committee and painstakingly given their time and effort in drafting the constitution.
Without the constitution it isn’t difficult to imagine that the country would have been in a state of chaos. There would be a disorder everywhere. Governments wouldn’t deliver; the administration would have been ineffective no powers to the people; there would have been disorder everywhere.
Today we live in a civilized and orderly society; thanks to the constitution and the people behind it.
Let us not forget the significance of the constitution and the people behind it. Let's bow down to them and pledge to follow the constitution in words and spirit. With this I end my speech. Jai Hind!!
