Happy Republic Day


Indai Flag
Happy Republic Day
Republic Day‬ honors the date on which the Constitution of India came into force 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 the Declaration of Indian Independence (Purna Swaraj) was proclaimed by the Indian National Congress as opposed to the Dominion status offered by the British Regime. ‪
Happy Republic Day
Here are some facts about Republic Day that every Indian must be aware of:
1. January 26, 1930 was earlier celebrated as India's Independence Day or Purna Swaraj Day. It's the day India decided to fight for complete freedom.
2. After we achieved Independence on August 15 in 1947, our leaders wanted January 26 to be remembered in history as well. Therefore, the day was made to coincide with the day of Swaraj.
3. The first Republic Day was celebrated on January 26, 1950, three years after we got independence.
4. Republic Day Celebrations are a 3-day long affair.
The celebrations end on January 29 with the Beating Retreat ceremony.
5. The first R-Day parade at Rajpath was held in 1955.
6. A Christian song, Abide With Me, is played at the Republic Day Parade. It is believed to be one of Mahatma Gandhi's favourite songs.
7. India's Constitution is the longest in the world. It has a total of 448 articles.
It is written in English and Hindi.
8. Drafting the Constitution was a herculean task. Dr B.R. Ambedkar took 2 years and 11 months to draft the Indian Constitution.
9. Our leaders took the best aspects from other countries' constitutions. The concept of liberty, equality and fraternity came from the French constitution while the Five-Year Plans came from the USSR constitution.
10. Before the Constitution came into force, India followed British Government's Government of India Act 1935.
11. A majority of national awards such as Bharat Ratna, Padma Bhushan and Kirti Chakra are awarded during the Republic Day ceremony.


A road to our children’s future.

India needs strict laws to reduce child fatalities in traffic accidents.


Nelson Mandela said, “There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.” Unfortunately, the revelation about the safety of our children is not something we can be proud of. Every day, numerous children fall prey to road accidents. One cannot forget the tragic incident of March 4, 2013, when 12 children were killed and another eight injured in Jalandhar, when a truck collided with their minibus. On October 13, 2015, a school bus overturned in Uttar Pradesh, grievously injuring over 12 children.

This year, Children’s Day arrived amid statistics on the staggering number of children lost in road crashes. In 2014 alone, 16,901 children were killed in road crashes in India. This is nearly 675 per cent more than the reported deaths of children from all crimes against them put together. By the end of the day, almost 50 innocent children would have been killed in preventable road accidents.

The increasing number of incidents involving the deaths of children in road crashes reveals not only the lack of awareness but also the existing policy gaps with regard to road safety, especially the safety of vulnerable road users like children.

The problem is not only visible human factors, such as a lack of respect for pedestrians and rash driving, but also the current legislative framework that doesn’t incorporate comprehensive provisions for ensuring a safe commute for children. For instance, the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, doesn’t necessitate the use of child restraints in four-wheelers, which can be extremely effective in reducing injuries and deaths. Regarding two-wheelers, although the act provides for protective headgear for both driver and pillion rider, it doesn’t lay down the much-needed standards for child helmets and the provision, therefore, is hardly implemented vis-a-vis children. Moreover, the act gives state governments the power to make additional rules in this regard and several state motor vehicle rules have further diluted helmet requirements by specifically excluding children from the category. The Central legislation is completely silent on ensuring safety of children in non-motorized transport, which is the more frequently used mode of transport for thousands of children.

It’s surprising that a country which has eradicated polio and eliminated neonatal tetanus in the last one year has failed to protect its children from preventable road deaths. If policymakers and the public act together, this epidemic too can be eradicated. There’s a lot to learn from international experiences.

The “safe routes to school” programs in the US and UK, and the iWalks Club in Canada are noteworthy initiatives that make roads travelled by children safer and accessible by improving the infrastructure and limiting motor traffic in school zones. We must take simple, yet effective measures, such as reclaiming neighborhood streets for children, in order to prevent tragic incidents of children being mowed down by rash traffic. Places frequented by children, specifically near schools, parks and at specified times of day, should be identified as “child zones” and a duty should be imposed on all drivers to strictly obey traffic rules, including lower speed limits. School buses should be put in special categories of vehicles with stricter procedures for issuing of licenses and compulsory training for drivers. Since children mostly travel accompanied by adults, it’s important to make institutions like schools and adults accountable for ensuring the safety of children on the road, including safe commutes to school. Last and most important, the legislative framework should take child safety into account by ensuring stricter penalties for traffic offences involving children and ensuring compliance with minimum safety standards.

The government has started taking measures in these directions through the current deliberations on the road transport and safety bill. Although the final contours of the draft bill are not known, we hope that it will address the crucial concern — children’s safety during commute — in a comprehensive manner. We need to prioritize the safety of our children on roads by introducing strong and comprehensive legislation in the upcoming winter session
of Parliament.

UNIHALT – పేరెంట్స్ కి ఉపయోగపడే మొబైల్ ఆప్ కంపెనీ పెట్టిన వైజాగ్ కుర్రాళ్ళు - smarttelugu.com

రోల్ నెంబర్ 1 …యస్  సర్, రోల్ నెంబర్ 2 …యస్  సర్ , రోల్ నెంబర్ 3 …Absent సర్ అని పక్కనొడు చెప్పాడు.

సాయంత్రం రోల్ నెంబర్ 3 పేరెంట్స్ స్కూల్ కి వచ్చారు.కాని స్కూల్లో బాబు లేడు.మా బాబు ఎక్కడ అంటే…స్కూల్ యాజమాన్యం టీచర్ ని పిలిచారు.వీళ్ళ బాబు ఇవాళ స్కూల్ కి రాలేదు సర్ అన్నాడు టీచర్.

“అదేంటండి నేనే మా వాడిని స్కూల్ బస్సు ఎక్కించింది,రాలేదు అంటారు ఏంటి”  అంది పిల్లాడి తల్లి.
“అయినా, స్కూల్ కి రాకపోతే మాకు చెప్పాలి కదా…మా బాబు మార్నింగ్ నుండి కనపడకపోతే అసలు మాకు చెప్పలేదు మీరు.ఇదేం నిర్లక్ష్యం, మీ నిర్లక్ష్యం వలెనే బాబు తప్పిపోయాడు అని” ఆవేశపడ్డాడు పిల్లాడి తండ్రి.

ఏదో మాములుగా రాలేదు అనుకున్నాము సర్ , మాకు మాత్రం ఏమి తెలుస్తుంది అన్నాడు స్కూల్ ప్రిన్సిపాల్ .

ఆ పిల్లాడి పేరెంట్స్ స్కూల్ యాజమాన్యం పైన కేస్ పెట్టారు. ఈ వార్త అందరికి తెలిసింది..మిగిలిన పేరెంట్స్ కుడా వచ్చి ఇలా జరిగితే మా పిల్లల సంగతి ఏంటి అని స్కూల్ దగ్గర గొడవ చేసారు.

ఏమి చెయ్యాలో తెలియక స్కూల్ యాజమాన్యం తల పట్టుకు కూర్చుంది.

రొండు రోజుల తరువాత, పోలీస్లు పిల్లాడి ఆచూకి తెలుసుకున్నారు. స్కూల్ బయట బస్సు దిగాక ఆ కు��్రాడిని ఎవరో ఎత్తుకెళ్ళారు. ఎలాగోలా పిల్లాడికి ఏమి కాకుండా పోలీస్లు కేస్ చేధించారు.

స్కూల్ లో సరయిన సెక్యూరిటీ లేదు…పిల్లల గురుంచి ఎప్పటికప్పుడు సమాచారం వారి పేరెంట్స్ కి అందజేయుటలేదు అని పోలీస్ స్కూల్ వారిని మందలించారు.

ఇది కథే అయినప్పటికీ ….ఇలాంటి సంగటనలు మనం రోజు పేపర్ లో చాలా చదువుతున్నాము, T.V లో చూస్తున్నాము.

మరి ఈలాంటి ప్రాబ్లం ని నివారించడానికి , స్కూల్ లో సెక్యూరిటీ సిస్టంని పెంపొందించటానికి
స్కూల్లని ,కాలేజీలని , టీచర్స్ ని , పేరెంట్స్ ని  అనుసంధిస్తూ Unihalt అనే స్టార్ట్ అప్ నెలకొల్పారు Ravi Teja Konathala  మరియు Ravi Raja konathala అనే అన్నదమ్ములు.
