Republic Day (26 January)

26 January, Republic Day honours the date on which the Constitution of India came into effect on 26 January 1950 replacing the Government of India Act (1935) as the governing document of India.

The Constitution was adopted by the Indian Constituent Assembly on 26 November 1949, and came into effect on 26 January 1950 with a democratic government system, completing the country’s transition towards becoming an independent republic. 26 January was chosen as the Republic day because it was on this day in 1930 when Declaration of Indian Independence (Purna Swaraj) was proclaimed by the Indian National Congress as opposed to the Dominion status offered by British Regime.

 

Background

India became independent of the United Kingdom on August 15, 1947. India did not have a permanent constitution at this time. The drafting committee presented the constitution’s first draft to the national assembly on November 4, 1947. The national assembly signed the final English and Hindi language versions of the constitution on January 24, 1950.

India’s constitution came into effect on Republic Day, January 26, 1950. This date was chosen as it was the anniversary of Purna Swaraj Day, which was held on January 26, 1930.The constitution gave India’s citizens the power to govern themselves by choosing their own government. Dr Rajendra Prasad took oath as India’s first president at the Durbar Hall in the Government House, followed by a residential drive along a route to the Irwin Stadium, where he unfurled India’s national flag. Ever since the historic day, January 26 is celebrated with festivities and patriotic fervor across India.

India adopted the constitution on November 26, 1949, which came into force on January 26, 1950, marking the country’s first Republic Day.

 

Celebrations

The main Republic Day celebration is held in the national capital, New Delhi, at the Rajpath before the President of India. On this day, ceremonious parades take place at the Rajpath, which are performed as a tribute to India; its unity in diversity and rich cultural heritage.

Another new addition to this year’s parade will be that of 113 women from the Border Security Force, or BSF, who will roar across the Rajpath performing breathtaking stunts on motorcycles. The women squad has been named Seema Bhavani or “the border braves”. The women contingent will showcase 16 types of stunts, including “Pyramid”, “Fish Riding”, “Shaktiman”, “Bull Fighting” and “Seema Prahari”.

 

Republic Day parade chief guest

As India celebrates its 69th Republic Day today, for the first time, 10 leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations or ASEAN will be the chief guests at the ceremonial parade, held at Rajpath, in the heart of national capital Delhi. In 2018, Ten guests (Heads of ASEAN states) Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Brunei, Prime Minister Hun Sen of Cambodia, President Joko Widodo of Indonesia, Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith of Laos, Prime Minister Najib Razak of Malaysia, State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte of Philippines, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha of Thailand and Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc of Vietnam are invited.

APSC Mains – English Paper Analysis

English-APSC-Mains
 

 

 

 

 


The compulsory English paper is of 300 Marks, which makes it very important part of scoring well in APSC Mains exam.
This paper needs comparatively less attention and preparation efforts ( though most candidates make no preparation of at all ), but we should prepare ourselves to the required level, also because almost all questions in this paper is answerable by everyone writing the exam, all the questions we have been writing as a part of English subject of our academic career.

We will try to analyse the question pattern of recent years ( and hope the pattern to remain same this year also), to get an understanding of what types of various questions are gonna come in the paper. Some changes were done since last two years paper, but they were of very minor changes, other than the no. of essay being increased from one topic of 100 marks to 2 topics of 50 marks each.

 

Total 300 Marks

Precis – 40 Marks
Original Paragraph given is of around 550 words on which candidates are asked to write a Precis, though they have not mentioned the word limit but we have to generalise it as one-third of the original passage.
So we can assume it 1/3 of (550 words) = 170-190 words.

 

Essay – 100 Marks

As we know previously APSC used to ask one essay of 100 marks, but now they ask two shorter essays of two topics from one topic from two group of topics each. Which makes it easier as candidates need to write less about one topic and this has also increased their options of selecting topic.

Each essays are to be written at about 400-500 words.

We have discusses this topics in details separately in these pages below
