Neha Priya, Secretary of SW-DSLA, says, “Our children are the future of our country. That is why it is important to catch them young and explain to them the values of unity, fraternity, equality and liberty enshrined in the preamble, such that they can imbibe these values and help build the India that was dreamt of by our Constitution framers.”

She added, “The focus for the last 75 years has been on enforcement of fundamental rights and the time has now come to shift the focus on our fundamental duties. If we can achieve that, then that will be the true celebration of Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav.”
