Sunday Scribblings #3: When You Keep At It, You Will Eventually Catch Up

Playing catch up seems to be all I do when I sign up for daily blogging challenges, but I also realize that – when you keep at it, you will eventually catch up ๐Ÿ™‚ So here I am, almost at the finish line and almost caught up.

This past week, India celebrated her 70th Republic Day. Growing up, this day meant one of two things for me. While I was still a school student, it meant participating in the annual Republic Day celebrations of our school. All of us students participated in the march-past, and groups of us participated in a medley of events with our eager parents as our audience. I recall one year of performing the lezim – have you heard or seen this one? If not, check this or any other video (for lezim) – it is fun, cheery, and a great workout to boot (I do miss this one!).

A couple of interesting facts about India’s Republic Day

  • 26th January, 1950 was the day the Constitution of India came into effect.
  • This date was chosen for a significant reason – it was the anniversary of Purna Swaraj Day. That is, this was the date when the Declaration of Indian Independence (Purna Swaraj) was proclaimed by the Indian National Congress in 1930.
  • India’s constitution is the longest written constitution in the world and took Dr. B.R. Ambedkar almost 3 years to draft it (2 yrs, 11 months, and 18 days to be more specific!)
