Any nation can progress only if law of the land is in hands of its own people, that is if the people get to choose their representatives and have the power to peacefully overthrow those who do not perform well. People should also enjoy basic fundamental rights, such as- the right to freedom of speech, right to equality, right against exploitation, right to freedom of religion, etc. In a democratic set up these rights are enshrined in the Constitution. India too has a written Constitution, in which all the rights enjoyed by its citizens and powers of the legislative, executive, and judiciary are provided and explained. It is to commemorate the inception of “The Constitution of India” that we celebrate Republic Day on January 26.
