As India marks its 75th year as a sovereign, democratic and republican state today, My Kolkata looks at some fascinating posts on social media that bring out the true essence of ‘Incredible India’. Let the celebration begin…

Have you ever delved into the intricacies of our Constitution?

The Constitution of India, an important document shaping the framework and fundamental principles of the Indian government, stands as the world’s lengthiest written constitution. Comprising 395 articles, 12 schedules, 5 appendices, and 103 amendments, it holds a unique place in legal history. However, have you ever wondered about its original appearance? The Constitution of India is originally handwritten in two languages: Hindi and English. The original copies of the Constitution are kept in special helium-filled cases in the Parliament. It is written in calligraphy and has illustrations by the renowned Indian artists like Nandalal Bose and Beohar Rammanohar Sinha. The illustrations depict various aspects of history, culture and heritage, such as the Indus Valley Civilization, the Mauryan Empire, the Bhakti movement, the freedom struggle and the national emblem. Here's a post by @steelminindia on the Constitution of India.

A video went viral on social media recently, where Celinedee Matahari, a French Indonesian singer and a fan of AR Rahman, stopped his car in Dubai and sang ‘Vande Mataram’ for him. Rahman, visibly touched by her performance, recorded the heartfelt rendition on his phone and shared it across his social media platforms. The video once again proves that the power of music can transcend boundaries, unite cultures and evoke shared emotions. It not just celebrates AR Rahman for the musical legend he is, but also makes every Indian proud. Check out the reel posted by @celinedee_matahari

#BharatKiNariInSari craze grips India

#BharatKiNariInSari has become a social media sensation since the campaign was started by the Ministry of Culture as part of the ‘Amrit Mahotsav’ commemorating the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence. Paying homage to the contributions of Indian women across various fields, this campaign has got an overwhelming response from netizens. Celebrities and women from diverse backgrounds have joined the movement, sharing pictures and stories about themselves, adorned in saris under the hashtag. On the occasion of Republic Day, the trend once again gained momentum on the internet after the Ministry of Culture posted a map of India depicting types of Indian saris from each state. Actress Sameera Reddy aka @reddysameera posted photos with her mother-in-law in a sari following the trend.
