    Republic Day Special- Article Writing Contest- Participate and win prizes

    As we all know, Republic Day is celebrated to mark the date, 26th Jan 1950, on which the Constitution of India came into effect. It was on the 26th of November 1949 that the Constitution of India was adopted, enacted and given to ourselves, WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, and it came into effect on the 26th of January declaring India to be an independent democratic nation.

    Let me now draw your attention to Part III and Part IV A of our Constitution that deals with Fundamental Rights and Fundamental Duties which form a vital part of the Constitution.

    The Fundamental Rights guaranteed by the Constitution are-
    Right to Equality (Article 14-18)
    Right to Freedom (Article 19-22)
    Right against Exploitation (Article 23-24)
    Right to Freedom of Religion (Article 25-28)
    Cultural and Educational Rights (Article 29-30)
    Right to Constitutional Remedies (Article 32)

    The Fundamental Duties are-
    1. to abide by the constitution and respect its ideal and institutions;
    2. to cherish and follow the noble ideals which inspired our national struggle for freedom;
    3. to uphold and protect the sovereignty, unity and integrity of India;
    4. to defend the country and render national service when called upon to do so;
    5. to promote harmony and the spirit of common brotherhood amongst all the people of India transcending religious, linguistic and regional diversities, to renounce practices derogatory to the dignity of women;
    6. to value and preserve the rich heritage of our composite culture;
    7. to protect and improve the natural environment including forests, lakes, rivers, and wild-life and to have compassion for living creatures;
    8. to develop the scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform;
    9. to safeguard public property and to abjure violence;
    10. to strive towards excellence in all spheres of individual and collective activity, so that the nation constantly rises to higher levels of endeavour and achievement. Further, one more Fundamental duty has been added to the Indian Constitution by the 86th Amendment of the constitution in 2002.
    11. As a parent or guardian, to provide opportunities for education to his child, or as the case may be, ward between the age of six and fourteen years.

    Fundamental Rights and Fundamental Duties are not mere legal requirements but are obligations on the part of the State (governments) and the citizens respectively and are co-related.
