Learning More about the Constitution
-Ms. Tejashree Vesvikar
“Democracy is not merely a form of Government. It is primarily a mode of associated living, of conjoint communicated experience. It is essentially an attitude of respect and reverence towards fellow men,” as rightly quoted by Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, the Chairman of the Constitution Drafting Committee who framed the Constitution of Independent India.
On November 26,2019 as we celebrated the Constitution Day to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution of India, the Primary Section of Don Bosco High School, Matunga made the students acknowledge the contribution of the distinguished Indian personalities who played a pivotal role in framing the Indian Constitution.
The day began with an informative and inspiring morning talk highlighting the success story of Dr. B. R.Ambedkar. Even after many hardships and humiliation faced by him because of the prevalent caste system in society then, he decided to bring a positive change in the society. This talk was an attempt to motivate our students to work with dedication towards their goals.
The students repeated the Preamble of the Constitution of India. The Preamble of the Indian Constitution helped the students to understand the fundamental political code, structure, procedures, powers, and duties of the government institutions. The teachers also explained the fundamental rights, directive principles and the duties of Indian citizens.
India’s constitution is probably the longest written constitution in the world. Pictures and charts displayed in the corridors and classrooms spoke volumes about the life and achievements of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar and his invaluable contribution in framing the Indian Constitution. The students gained valuable insight about this great person They also learnt the importance to respect every caste and religion, to treat everyone as an equal and to live in harmony.
