Zee Theatre stars share their favourite reminiscences of Republic Day

Flag hoisting on a misty, winter season morning on the faculty grounds or huddling near to a television set to observe the Republic Working day parade with cherished types are some of the most cherished reminiscences we all recall from childhood.  Aahana Kumra who stars in Zee Theater’s  ‘Sir Sir Sarla’ is no exception and states, “I don’t forget waking up early in the morning to enjoy the Republic Working day parade on Doordarshan and still cherish this household ritual. Flag hoisting far too was a incredibly integral section of my household as my mom has given 40 several years to the law enforcement drive and this is something we have often done. Yet another memory is watching her cry every single time ‘Ae mere Watan ke logo’ performed on the radio or Tv set. The concept inherent in this working day reminds us that we are all Indians very first and should set our country prior to everything else.”  

Sadiya Siddiqui who characteristics in Zee Theatre’s literary anthology, ‘Koi Baat Chale’ and reads Saadat Hasan Manto’s story ‘Hatak’ says, “I try to remember practising the march earlier for the  Republic Working day parade in college as a  an cadet. I would also give speeches about India’s beliefs of unity in variety. I felt quite very pleased of the fact that India had so quite a few languages, and religions but cherished every single citizen similarly. We all celebrated each individual other’s festivals and I would like those people days to occur back.” 

Sadiya hopes, as a nation, we will honour our Structure, and look for insurance policies which aid the significantly less privileged, and the in a different way abled so that they can all dwell, commute, and operate with dignity. She adds, “And I surely want additional really like, extra tolerance for every single other for the reason that life is quick and only unity and peace can make this environment a superior position.” 

Actor Vivaan Shah who reads Munshi Premchand’s tale ‘Gulli Danda’ in Zee Theatre’s ‘Koi Baat Chale’ has vivid recollections of Republic Day parades, the jubilation, and the stirring spirit of the occasion and says, “I recall currently being a aspect of quite a few capabilities at university on this day and viewing films like ‘Gandhi’ and ‘Mother India’ which would be aired by Doordarshan. Bhisham Sahni’s ‘Tamas’ also still left a deep influence on me, developing up. What I have imbibed from the syncretic society of India is that there is a variance in between patriotism and nationalism. Patriotism is the enjoy for one’s own state, while nationalism is the hatred for an individual else or their state. Gandhiji taught us to observe appreciate and peace and not hatred and hostility. And that would be my information as well on this special working day.”  

Celebrated actor and director Seema Pahwa who helms Zee Theatre’s ‘Koi Baat Chale’ recollects, “I still don’t forget fondly, practising for the Republic Day parade and viewing movies like ‘Gandhi’, ‘Shaheed’ and ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ which evoked these deep patriotic inner thoughts. On this day, I would just say that if we want to see modify, we must herald it ourselves. Only by developing ourselves, can we add to the improvement of the nation.  If we start off functioning on ourselves at some point the country will development as considerably as we do. “
