Constitution Day is also known as the ‘Samvidhan Divas’. The Constitution of India is the longest written constitution of any sovereign country in the world. It also aims to create awareness of Fundamental Duties as enshrined in the Constitution. November 26, which was earlier celebrated as Law Day, marks the day when India had adopted its Constitution back in 1949, more than two years after attaining independence from the British rule. The Constitution came into effect next year on 26 January 1950, so as to commemorate the pledge of Purna Swaraj, passed in the Lahore session of the Congress on this day in 1930. The Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment on November 19, 2015, notified the decision of the Government of India to celebrate the 26th day of November every year as ‘Constitution Day’ to promote Constitution values among citizens.

Ms. Esitha Siddharth an assistant professor spoke about the frame work and on the preamble of the constitution, where she mentioned the Constitution declares India a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic, assuring its citizens’ justice, equality, and liberty and endeavours to promote fraternity. The Indian constitution stood the test of time as India has been a successful democracy, unlike many others who had become independent at the same time. All the faculty members took an oath to abide by the rule and law of the land. The program came to an end by singing national anthem.
