The Indian Constitution is the longest and took 3 years to frame.
The Build India Group was floated in 2006 and advocates the celebration of Pledge Festival. This is now held on the 26th of November which is Constitution Day. Schools are encouraged to have flag hoisting and to take the pledge which runs as follows:
We the people of India today
Do solemnly pledge ourselves
To the service of our nation
With honesty, sincerity and commitment
Always keeping our nation’s
In all that we think, do or say,
For the greater glory of this land.
