Constitution Day

A great

"A great man is different from an eminent one in that he is ready to be the servant of the society."  Says Dr BR Ambedkar with this thought on 26th November we the teachers of St Cecily’s gathered together to celebrate National Constitution Day or Samvidhan Divas. The significance of this day is that on this day in the year 1949, the Constituent Assembly of India adopted the Constitution of India 1949 and this came into effect on 26th January, 1950. Few of our teachers took the initiative and put up a small programme. Deon Dsouza Kalmady, who is pursuing LLB shared the meaning of preamble. He emphasized the importance of Constitution Day, the significance of its celebration and commemorated the people who contributed to the development of Indian constitution. The preamble of Indian Constitution i.e India to be a sovereign, socialist, secular and democratic republic which is aiming to secure justice, liberty, equality to all citizens and promote fraternity to maintain unity and integrity of the nation were stressed in his speech as these rights are necessity and are not a privilege. Students participated in drawing and learnt the  preamble of Indian Constitution.

Ms Nancy Mendonca, Mrs Teena Menezes, Mrs Vinet Quadros and Sr Philomena AC coordinated this program.
