In India, the 26th of November marks the celebration of Constitution Day. This annual event commemorates the adoption of the Indian Constitution by the Constituent Assembly in 1949. It serves as a tribute to Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, the principal architect of the Constitution.

The significance of Constitution Day lies in its recognition of India's foundational document, embodying fundamental political principles, guidelines, and rights for both the government and its citizens. Various activities, including programs, speeches, and quizzes, are conducted across government institutions, schools, and colleges nationwide.

The decision to observe Constitution Day was made in 2015 by the Ministry of Social Justice to raise awareness about the Constitution's values among the citizens. It aims to instill a deeper understanding of the guiding principles upon which the nation's governance and citizenry operate.

Notably, the day also aligns with the full implementation of the Constitution on 26th January 1950, which led to the celebration of Republic Day. This dual commemoration signifies the essence of India's constitutional democracy and the rights it bestows upon its people.

Constitution Day acts as a catalyst for fostering awareness and understanding among citizens, emphasizing the significance of upholding constitutional values in the country's fabric. It serves as a reminder of the shared responsibilities and rights bestowed upon every Indian citizen by this founding document.
