Constitution Day

1.The Government of India celebrates the 26th November as ‘Constitution Day’ every year as it was on this day that the Constitution of India was adopted by the Constituent Assembly in 1949. 

2. In this context, two films have been commissioned by the Ministry of External Affairs, (External Publicity Division), New Delhi, highlighting the salient and empowering features of the Constitution. Brief synopses and the YouTube links of the films are given below:

(a) ‘Taana Baana-The Warp & Weft of India’ is a 22-minute documentary film that weaves together the metaphoric act of weaving with the musical traditions of north India to reflect on what holds the nation together. Like the act of weaving, the Constitution binds together heterogeneous people and cultures into one modern nation that espouses values of sovereignty, justice, liberty, equality, and fraternity. 

(b) ‘India - The Spirit of Freedom’is a short animated film that celebrates the success story of India by tracing the journey of the rise of the nation from the shackles of colonialism to becoming one of the pioneers of innovation and development armoured by a constitution that encapsulates the true essence of freedom. 

3. Apart from the above, a High Resolution photograph of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar has also been uploaded on Google Drive, which can be downloaded from the link :
