Hon’ble Vice President, Respected Principal, Respected Professors and Administration staff members and my dear fellow students,

Today is the Republic Day, the most important day for every Indian; the day when the Constitution of Independent India was formed. Like every year, our college celebrates this significant day with much enthusiasm and vigour. It’s a great honour for me to welcome you all and speak a few lines on this special occasion.

Since the time of Independence, India has witnessed a lot of changes at the political, social and cultural front. But one thing that remains intact is its’ ‘Unity in Diversity’. We all know, Unity is the most influential factor in solving the cultural and social problems. It infuses respect amongst people irrespective of their religious and cultural differences. India is famous for having multi-cultural system and yet people live together with peace and harmony.

India is a colourful country, inhabited by people who believe in different religions, follow different tradition, culture and have their individual belief and lifestyle; yet they come together to celebrate festivals of each other. While Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with a lot of vigour in West India, Diwali, Holi are the attractions for North, Navratra is Gujarat’s heart and Janmashtmi is UP’s soul. This is one of the factors which attract foreign tourists the most and they especially visit India during Holi, Diwali, EiD, Christmas, Lohri, etc. India has the oldest civilization and culture and some of which still being practised today. Though there is no dearth of diverse and assorted cultures in India, it is still an epitome of the famous Slogan ‘Unity in Diversity’.

Our present Indian civilization is sustained and nurtured by the multi-ethnicities of different states. We all are aware that diverse races such as Mughals, Britishers, etc. have migrated into India via sea and land routes. They conquered the country and settled here for several years.

India is a huge and populous country. It has 29 states with 22 official spoken languages, but in reality there are 150 different mother tongues spoken in different parts of the country. This is certainly amazing because despite so many differences, India still stands firm as a strong nation. People here are emotional and that’s the most popular language they understand which keep them united in all aspects. Not only language, but Indians vary from each other in food habit, attire, social and cultural behaviour, ethnicity, festivals and religious beliefs.

The political condition is stable in India and it allows multinational companies to start their venture, which opens up employment opportunities for the Indians. People in India are soft spoken and caring irrespective of the part they belong to.

Not to forget, there are some anti-social elements who try to corrupt the country by their behaviour and activities, yet India remains united. It is the force of our motherland, which give us so much of strength and tolerance to accept the adversity and promote ‘Unity in Diversity’.

Thank You!
