National Law Day 26/11 A Day that is always remembered at Banasthali

National Law Day 26/11 A Day that is always remembered at Banasthali

One of the three original copies of the Indian Constitution is presently in Banasthali whose founder Apaji Shri Hiralal Shastriji was one of the members of the constituent assembly which drafted the constitution.

The original Constitution of India, adopted on 26 January 1950, was not a printed document. It was entirely handcrafted by the artists of Shantiniketan under the guidance of Acharya Nandalal Bose, with the calligraphy texts done by Prem Behari Narain Raizada in Delhi. This day is celebrated on the twenty- sixth day of November to honour the 207 eminent members of the Constituent Assembly who are considered the founding fathers of the Constitution of India.

Every citizen in India today knows for sure that the Constitution is supreme and the Fundamental Rights guaranteed under it indeed are sacrosanct. The evolutionary stages of the Constitution started from Minto Morley Reforms resulting in The Indian Councils Act 1909 followed by Montagu Chelmsford Reforms resulting in the Government of India Act 1919, the 1927 Simon Commission and Round Table Conferences (1930 - 1932) leading to the Government of India Act 1935, the 1946 cabinet Mission Plan and the subsequent formation of the Constituent Assembly. The Quasi Federal nature of Indian Constitution is unique as against that of the American and British constitutions.

One may say that 26 January comes before November 26 in the calendar of any year but in the evolutionary calendar of the Constitution of India it was 26 November 1949 which came before 26 January 1950. The significance of 26 November observed as National Law Day in India lies in the fact that it was on this day in year 1949, the drafting of the Constitution by the Constituent Assembly which started functioning on 09 December 1946 under the Chairmanship of Dr BR Ambedkar was completed after a span of 2 years, 11 months and 17 days. Subsequently, it was signed on 24 January 1950 and enacted on 26th January 1950 on which date the Constituent Assembly also ceased to exist transforming to the birth of the provisional Parliament of India.
