It was a phenomenal feeling. We pinched ourselves to believe it to be true, to be mentioned on the same page as that of the company of our Ideal, Our Psychological Mentor, The Businessman, The Investor, The Philanthropist, The Iconic Mr. Ratan Tata and other corporate bigwigs. Zenitex and Mr. Viral Desai, feel acclaimed to have a mention alongside such hugely successful conglomerates. We feel humbled as well as powered and ready to conquer the next level.

On our part as always we have been taking care of nature and believing in the law of the universe which says that whatever you give comes back to you and anything given in good faith comes back with more power than by which it was released. Our belief has always been that when you do good deeds it brings you good luck and miracles.  Miracles as they are for us throughout the journey of Zenitex so far and surely in the future too.

zenitex and viral desai salutes spirit of india on 67th republic day - INDIA-THEME-SYMBOLS

India became independent of the United Kingdom on August 15, 1947. India did not have a permanent constitution at this time. The drafting committee presented the constitution’s first draft to the national assembly on November 4, 1947. The national assembly signed the final English and Hindi language versions of the constitution on January 24, 1950.

India’s constitution came into effect on Republic Day, January 26, 1950. This date was chosen as it was the anniversary of Purna Swaraj Day, which was held on January 26, 1930.The constitution gave India’s citizens the power to govern themselves by choosing their own government. Dr Rajendra Prasad took oath as India’s first president at the Durbar Hall in the Government House, followed by a residential drive along a route to the Irwin Stadium, where he unfurled India’s national flag. Ever since the historic day, January 26 is celebrated with festivities and patriotic fervour across India.

Republic Day represents the true spirit of the independent India. Military parades, displays of military equipment and the national flag are important symbols on this date. India’s national flag is a horizontal tricolor of deep saffron (kesaria) at the top, white in the middle and dark green at the bottom in equal proportion. The ratio of the flag’s width to its length is two to three. A navy-blue wheel in the center of the white band represents the chakra. Its design is that of the wheel which appears on the abacus of the Sarnath Lion Capital of Ashoka. Its diameter approximates to the white band’s width and it has 24 spokes.

India will celebrate its 67th Republic Day tomorrow, with President of French Republic, H.E. Mr. Francois Hollande as the chief guest. Thousands of Indians in a festive mood, would line up along Rajpath in the national capital to witness a show of military strength and cultural diversity. Our hearts are filled with pride when we see the National Flag unfurling on Republic Day. 26th January brings out the patriot in us but not everybody knows how much significance the day holds for us. So, here are some facts about Republic Day gathered by us, that every Indian must be aware of:

  1. The first Republic Day was celebrated on January 26, 1950, three years after we got independence.

2. Republic Day Celebrations are a 3-day long affair. The celebrations end on January 29 with the Beating Retreat ceremony.

3. India’s Constitution is the longest in the world. It has a total of 448 articles. The first copy of the constitution was not printed, but handwritten and calligraphed in Hindi and English.

4. Drafting the Constitution was a herculean task. Dr B.R. Ambedkar took 2 years and 11 months to draft the Indian Constitution.zenitex and viral desai salutes spirit of india on 67th republic day - 8

5. The Constitution was adopted on this day in 1950, and it declared India as a republic, hence the name.

6. Our leaders took the best aspects from other countries’ constitutions. The concept of liberty, equality and fraternity came from the French constitution while the Five-Year Plans came from the USSR constitution.

7. Before the Constitution came into force, India followed British Government’s Government of India Act 1935.

8. A majority of national awards such as Bharat Ratna, Padma Bhushan and Kirti Chakra are awarded during the Republic Day ceremony.

9. In the first Republic day parade, more than 100 aircraft participated. Among them were Liberators, Spitfires, Dakotas, Tempests and Harvards. In comparison, last year’s display had just 33 planes and helicopters.

10. The Indian Air Force came into existence this day. Prior to that it was known as the Royal Indian Air Force. Dropping the prefix was symbolic of Indian independence.

11. The venue was not always Rajpath. Between 1950 and 1954 the venues of the Republic Day parade were Irwin Stadium (now National Stadium), Kingsway, Red Fort and Ramlila grounds. Rajpath, earlier known as Kingsway, became the permanent venue from 1955.

12. The song ‘Abide with Me’ is played on every Republic Day, because it was Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite.

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
Earth’s joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word,
But as Thou dwell’st with Thy disciples, Lord,
Familiar, condescending, patient, free.
Come not to sojourn, but abide with me.

Thou on my head in early youth didst smile,
And though rebellious and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee.
On to the close, O Lord, abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death’s sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy sign before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

quote by Viral Desai - CEO, Zenitex : Greenery and Cleanliness


Uttarayan (usually spoken as Uttraan) is a festive day all over India. Each region celebrates its own local form of this festival. In the western parts of India it is called the “Makar Sankranti” or Uttraan. This is the day winter officially ends and spring begins – a transition symbolic of discarding the previous season and the beginning of a fresh new season.

Unlike other Hindu festivals that follow the lunar motion, Makar Sankranti follows the movement of the sun. It marks the beginning of the sun’s transition into the zodiac of Capricorn (Makar=Capricorn, Sankranti= transition). This makes it the only festival to fall on a fixed date every year – January 14th.

Colourful kites filling up the sky on Uttarayan (Makar Sankranti) is a mesmerizing sight. And this festivity is best cherished with goodies like undhiyu, jalebi, sugarcane, chikkis et al. This is that time of the year when celebrations ring in the air and happiness touches every heart.

This Uttarayan, try to find “Green Kites’ made of Bioplastic film which compliments the go green initiative. The plastic film sheets are termed as “Bioplastic”—Bio as they are 100% biodegradable and compostable. And they are very similar to plastic in terms of strength and usability. Once used, the soil bacteria will decompose 95 per cent of this material to carbon, oxygen and non-toxic bio-mass within 180 days.

It is an eco-friendly idea which leads to sustainable development as far as environment is concerned. And the Kite Festival is one of the best ways for laying the foundation stone to this initiative which would remind us of the good old days when, kites used to be made of easily available materials.

Kites are believed to have been invented in China more than 2,000 years ago, where traditionally they were made from readily available materials such as rice paper, silk and plant fibres.

That’s why we would like to request people to use less kites made of non-recyclable paper / plastic go for eco-friendly alternative that will complement the green revolution and support the cause of clean and green environment

Get your kites ready for the flight with all the technicalities of tying the Kanna / Kinna and readying the Manjha and firki, putting on your sunglasses and cap to pilot your kites to the highest altitude of your dreams. Thereby, as a well-wisher, we advice you to take some precautions –

• If you are an ardent Kite flyer using the sharpest of thread (Manjha) cover your fingers with fibre adhesive tape well in advance and not after getting a cut.

• Do not overrun your terrace in pursuit of a cut off kite. Kites are cheap but your life is not.

• Wear Sun-Glasses to protect your eyes and a Cap / Hat to keep your head in shade.

• Drink water at regular intervals.

• Do not over shout on Uttraan day so that next day you have trouble speaking.

• Take into consideration noise pollution and people’s choices and try to keep the sound of music to your own terrace only, rather than the whole area hearing to your choice of songs.

• Avoid flying kites from roads as it can endanger pedestrians or two wheeler riders with its sharp Manjha (Thread).

• Avoid cutting internet cables while rolling back the manjha or we could be without our beloved internet for a couple of days.

• While riding a two wheeler, make your small one sit behind you. And while riding, go slow, keep an eye to watch out for that stray manjha going back to its owner after the flight is cut off. It can cut off your throat too and give fatal injuries.

• Keep children under your supervision throughout the day, when on terrace.

• Take care of flying birds. Avoid going through their flight path and if accidentally it is cut and falls on your terrace, kindly attend to it with first aid and give it a chance to live.

Team Zenitex wishes you all an entertaining and safe Uttraan day.

Thanks & Regards – Team ZENITEX
