CELEBRATION OF INTERNATIONAL DAY OF DEMOCRACY BY THE STUDENTS OF SOUTH CALCUTTA GIRLS’ COLLEGE
An online event was held by the students of South Calcutta Girls’ College to commemorate International Day of Democracy on the 15th of September, 2020. The programme was organized jointly by Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) of South Calcutta Girls’ College, NAAC Criterion VII Committee, Cultural Club and Social Awareness Cell.
The International Day of Democracy is celebrated around the world on the 15th of September each year. It was established through a resolution passed by the UN General Assembly in 2007, encouraging governments to strengthen and consolidate democracy. The theme of the programme was India’s Heritage of Communal Harmony.
Communal Harmony is an important feature of a democratic nation like India. The idea and practice of Secularism upheld in the Indian Constitution. It initiates separation of religious institutions from state institutions so as to facilitate the creation of a public sphere where religion might participate but not dominate. Citizens of India have the freedom to practice one’s faith or belief without harming others. Our vast nation is inhabited by people of diverse races, religions, communities and culture who have co-existed peacefully for centuries. This has helped in the development of National Integration which is like an invisible thread that brings together Indians of varied faiths, beliefs and cultures and has enabled us to appreciate our rich diversity.
It is to appreciate this culture of harmony that a virtual programme was organized where students recited poems and sang songs of harmony and patriotism.. Students made powerpoint presentations on the evolution of Communal Harmony thorough historical examples and also highlighted episodes in our past when the breakdown of amity had caused much harm in our society in the past. These presentations and performances underlined the importance of such values for our country as communal harmony helps to strengthen our democracy. It was attended by more than 200 participants who took great interest in the programme.
