International Day of Democracy in
Days to go:
International Day of Democracy is an annual event observed globally to raise awareness about the importance of democracy and to promote democratic values and principles. The observance serves as a reminder that governments should prioritize human rights, hold free elections, encourage public participation, and take essential measures to ensure the rule of law. The underlying aim of this day is to ensure transparency, accountability, and rule-based governance across nations.
The United Nations General Assembly established International Day of Democracy in its resolution A/RES/62/7 on November 8, 2007, in response to the global need for democratic societies. In India, democracy is the backbone of the political system, having the distinction of being the world's largest democratic country. India's diverse culture, multiple languages, and varied customs require a robust democratic system to ensure equal representation and participation of all its citizens. The day has a special significance as it echoes with the fundamental values enshrined in the Indian Constitution, safeguarding the rights and liberties of the citizens of India.
International Day of Democracy is observed in India through various programs, events, and seminars that engage citizens, especially the youth, in discussions about the challenges and solutions involved in fostering democratic ideals in the country. Various governmental and non-governmental organizations, educational institutions, and civil society groups collaborate to organize and participate in these activities. International Day of Democracy is celebrated every year on September 15, reminding all Indian citizens of the essential role democracy plays in ensuring good governance, unity, and progress in the country.
