India is indeed a Democratic Country and is run by the people and for the people. It houses people of different religions, faiths, and beliefs. The constitution allows people to enjoy their freedom and rights. But with this freedom were also fundamental duties they had to follow. So, the constitution of India was drafted to lay down some rules and regulations that the people had to abide by.
Thus, the constitution of India was adopted on the 26th of November 1949.
To mark this day, The National Indian Constitution day was celebrated on the 26th of November from 07.30 a.m. to 02.30 p.m.It was held on a huge scale to mark the Fundamental rights and duties of an Indian citizen bided by the law. It was chaired by IIT Bombay Campus School and Jr College Powai.

This was then carried forward by the Principal Ms.Valsala Kumari who highlighted the importance of Constitution day and stated that " It's not only a book but also the whole and sole of the nation"
