Ladies and gentlemen, esteemed guests, and fellow citizens, it is an honor to stand before you on this auspicious occasion of the 75th Republic Day Parade, celebrating a ‘Viksit Bharat’ with a focus on women-centric themes.
New Delhi, January 20, 2024 – Welcome, readers, to a special edition of our portal, marking the 75th Republic Day Parade with the themes ‘Viksit Bharat’ and ‘Bharat – Loktantra ki Matruka.’ Join us in exploring the significance of these themes, celebrating progress, democracy, and the remarkable contributions of women to our nation’s development.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I stand before you today with a heart full of pride and excitement as we anticipate the 75th Republic Day Parade at Kartavya Path on January 26, 2024. This year’s theme, ‘Viksit Bharat’ and ‘Bharat – Loktantra ki Matruka,’ not only signifies the progress of our nation but also places a spotlight on the invaluable role that women play in shaping our democratic ethos.
The theme ‘Viksit Bharat’ encapsulates the vision of a developed and progressive India. It echoes the aspirations of a nation that is not just growing economically but is also evolving socially, culturally, and technologically. As we witness the Republic Day Parade unfold at Kartavya Path, let us take pride in the strides our nation has taken and the path we have paved towards a brighter future.
Equally significant is the theme ‘Bharat – Loktantra ki Matruka,’ emphasizing the pivotal role of women as the epitome of democracy. The phrase translates to ‘Mother of Democracy,’ symbolizing the nurturing, inclusive, and compassionate qualities that women bring to the forefront of our democratic ideals. It is a recognition of the fact that a true democracy flourishes when all voices, including that of women, are heard and valued.
The 75th Republic Day Parade will be a celebration of the indomitable spirit of our women. From the armed forces to scientists, educators, and professionals across various fields, the parade will showcase the remarkable contributions of women in building a strong and vibrant India. It serves as a reminder that the progress of a nation is incomplete without the active participation and leadership of its women.
As we witness this women-centric Republic Day Parade, let us salute the dedication and commitment of the women who have broken barriers and shattered stereotypes. Their achievements inspire us to envision a future where every woman can pursue her dreams without limitations.
In the journey towards a ‘Viksit Bharat,’ let us all pledge to empower and uplift each other. Let us foster an environment where every citizen, irrespective of gender, has the opportunity to contribute to the nation’s growth and development. May the ‘Bharat – Loktantra ki Matruka’ be a guiding force in our pursuit of an inclusive and egalitarian society.
On this momentous occasion, let us take pride in our nation’s achievements, honor the women who have played a pivotal role, and renew our commitment to building a truly developed and democratic India.
Jai Hind. Happy Republic Day to one and all. Thank you.
