Description
The present requires of us even greater devotion and sacrifice than the past
An independence activist and a prominent Gandhian, Rajendra Prasad was the first President of the Republic of India. He also served as President of the Constituent Assembly which drafted India's Constitution. This selection from Rajendra Prasad's speeches includes a landmark speech on the Constitution to the Constituent Assembly (1949), and two speeches delivered on 26 January 1950, including the President's swearing-in speech. An appendix includes three significant speeches Rajendra Prasad delivered soon after the Republic was formed—the Independence Day speeches of 1950 and 1951, and the speech on the first anniversary of the Republic delivered on 25 January 1951. Together, they reflect his grand vision for the formation and administration of the new nation.

Introduction

Rajendra Prasad (1884—1963) was the first President of the Republic of India. An independence activist and a prominent Gandhian, Rajendra Prasad was a close associate of Gandhi's from the time of the Champaran Satyagraha in 1916. Prasad was elected president of the Indian National Congress in 1934, and again in 1939, after Subhas Chandra Bose resigned from the post. He served as president of the Constituent Assembly which drafted India's Constitution over 1948 and 1949. On 26 January 1950, Rajendra Prasad was sworn in as the first President of India. He remained in the post for twelve years, before resigning in 1962. He was also honoured with the Bharat Ratna that year.

This selection from Rajendra Prasad's speeches includes a landmark speech on the Constitution to the Constituent Assembly (1949), and two speeches delivered on 26 January 1950, including the President's swearing-in speech. An appendix includes three significant speeches Rajendra Prasad delivered soon after the Republic was formed—the Independence Day speeches of 1950 and 1951, and the speech on the first anniversary of the Republic delivered on 25 January 1951 .Together, they reflect the great leader's vision for the formation and administration of the new nation.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
