Constitution Day, also known as ‘National Law Day’, is celebrated in India on November 26 every year to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution of India. On November 26, 1949, the Constituent Assembly of India adopted the Constitution of India, which came into effect on January 26, 1950.
The programme at AIMIT started with a patriotic song by Shivam and Neha, students of MBA department.
The chief guest for the day was Dr Rose Veera D’Souza, dean of the Arts Faculty and Head of the Department of Political Science at St Aloysius College (Autonomous).
Dr D’Souza discussed the politics of the present and what the Constitution provides the citizens with.
“Indian Constitution is the best document one could ever have. From Article 14 to Article 32, this document could look into each of your fundamental rights,” She said. In her talk, Dr D’Souza said there are six freedoms and they are speech, association, assembly, movement, residence, and profession. “You all are free to do all the six freedoms. There cannot be a greater India where you have the freedom to live with your convictions,” she added.
She appreciated the MBA and IT departments, the deans, and the faculties for organising such a unique programme.
The programme was concluded by taking the preamble pledge to remind everyone of its existence and its goal of helping people become responsible, intelligent, and cultured citizens.
