Centre Point School, Wardhaman Nagar has been celebrating Constitution Day for many years now. The current situation did not deter the teachers from celebrating the day virtually with the students on the 26th of November, 2020.
We all know the tedious work that went behind the framing of the constitution. The social science teachers explained how difficult it had been for the leaders to bring their dreams into reality. It would not have been possible without the efforts of our leaders who thought and worked tirelessly day and night to get the correct framework where every Indian citizen can be treated equally. It is also a mark of tribute to Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar, the first law minister of India, who played an important role in the framing of the Indian Constitution.
The teachers showed a video “Samvidhan – The Making of Constitution of India” to the students with a brief introduction its importance and later, the pledge was reaffirmed by the students. The students liked the video and commented that it was not an easy task to frame the constitution. Some students even said that they wondered how the member could think of the future so well, that after more than 70 years, only a few amendments have been made.
