Republic day anchoring


Republic Day Anchoring



 “Ask not what your country can do for you,

Ask what you can do for your country”

A very pleasant, jubilant and exuberant morning to one and all present.

First of all, we extend a warm welcome to our respected Chief Guest, Respected Principal, Director/Managing Director, honoured guests and invitees, respected faculty and lovely audience. We welcome you all.

Today, we all are glowing with double enthusiasm. Can you tell why?

Yes, As we all have gathered to celebrate our national festival, Republic Day.

No, not really. This year it is a double bonanza as this year Republic Day is being hailed as diamond jubilee of our Republic Day and we are celebrating 75 years of India becoming a Republic nation.

Wow, that’s indeed a great accolade and a proud moment for all the Indians.

I invite all to join this nationwide celebration.

Let’s begin the celebration with flag hoisting followed by the national anthem.

I request the Chief Guest, honourable …………. and the Principal/Director ……………….. to unfurl the tricolour. I also request everyone to stand in attention for the national anthem.

Flag Hoisting/National Anthem

I request everyone to be seated and enjoy the cultural programme that is coming your way.

"Shaheedon ki chitaon pe lagenge har baras mele

Watan pe marnewalon ke yahi vaki nishan hoga"

No celebration of our country can commence without paying tribute to our freedom fighters who shed their blood like sweat so that we can witness the dawn of freedom and breathe in the breeze of free country.

Indeed, our freedom fighters and martyrs shall always be remembered with pride and celebrated with jubilation.

At the very outset, let us all pray to the Almighty for the unity, solidarity, progress and prosperity of our nation and all the Indians.

I request ………….. to lead us into the prayer.


Now, I would like to request our honourable Chief Guest to enlighten us on this auspicious occasion.

Address by the Chief Guest

Thank you sir for sharing your valuable thoughts.

India that is Bharat is known for its spirit of assimilating foreign influences and welcoming new customs and traditions, and thus becoming a panorama of varied cultures. The glimpse of India’s true spirit that is unity in diversity will be a treat to watch.

Unparalleled is the enthusiasm, the charm and the excitement of the young kids in displaying their love for the nation.

As they dress up in traditional outfits and colourful costumes, they depict rich culture and heritage, traditional variety and unique diversity of India.

Now, let’s witness innocent kids brimming with immense enthusiasm presenting a cute dance performance displaying the dances of various regions of India. Let’s have a quick glance of India’s Unity in Diversity. 

Cultural Dance

The republic day is marked by joyous celebration across the country. It is the euphoric celebration among people irrespective of their religion, caste and ideology. For kids it is a fun filled day as they dress up in tricolour outfits.

But, as they dress up in the attire and appearance of great Indian leaders they depict the valour of Rani Lakshmi Bai, Sukhdev, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, Subhash Chandra Bose and salute the ideals of Bhim Rao Ambedkar, Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindra Nath Tagore and other unsung heroes paying homage to their efforts to make India a glorious nation. Let's rejoice this moment and give tribute to the great leaders and the builders of our nation. Let’s welcome the kids with all the gusto.

Fancy Dress Show

This is incredibly commendable. These children truly deserve a huge round of applause.

"Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high

Where knowledge is free .................. Into such heaven of freedom

My God, let my country awake."

True to the vision of Rabindra Nath Tagore we are celebrating this Republic day to commemorate 75 years of progressive Republic India and the glorious history of its people, culture and achievements, vision and ambition.

Today, we hail progressive India's socio-cultural, political and economic identity, empowered by the spirit of Atmanirbhar Bharat.

Our friend ……………….. is here with us to speak his/her heart out on this Republic day and its significance essaying our role in making India a progressive country, let’s welcome him/her.


Republic day is such a big moment for all the Indians, a moment of pride and a moment of glory.

Today is the day wherein we take a trip down the memory lane of our golden heritage when the constitution of India came into force on this day in 1950. Here we have coming up next, a street play that will enrich us about the significance of this day and remind us of our fundamental rights and duties.

Street Play

It was awesome! This performance needs great cheers.

True, I didn’t know so much about our rights and duties.

Let’s honour our constitution in hearts!

Let’s salute its makers!

Let’s be aware of our rights!

Let’s be sincere to perform our duties!

Let’s be a responsible citizen!

Let’s be a true Indian!

As we move towards the close of the programme, I request respected Principal/Director to guide us all through his/her visionary thoughts.

Address by Principal/Director

Thank you sir/ma’am

"Jahan dal dal pe sone ki chidiyan karti hain basera.

Woh Bharat desh hai mera, who Bharat desh hai mera."

I’m pretty sure you all wanna sing with me.

So, let’s give a musical tribute to the nation, our martyrs, nation builders and all the proud Indians through a medley of patriotic songs.

Medley - Patriotic Songs

With this vibrant and melodious performance we have come to the close of this celebration.

"India is the cradle of human race, the birth place of human civilisation, the mother of history, the grandmother of legends and the great grandmother of tradition." 

Let’s join in the celebration with all our emotions, reverence and pride.

On the occasion of 75th Republic day let us celebrate our rights, perform our duties sincerely and follow the constitution of free India with pride and honour.

We wish everyone a very Happy Republic Day. 

Jai Hind! Jai Bharat!
