Republic Day National Celebrations

26th January is India's Republic Day

 

Republic Day, celebrated on January 26th every year, is one of India’s most important national events. It was on January 26th, 1950 that the constitution of India came into force and India became a truly Sovereign, Democratic and Republic state.
On this day, India finally enjoyed the freedom of spirit, rule of law and fundamental principle of governance. The patriotic fervor of the Indian people on this day brings the whole country together even in her embedded diversity.
Republic Day is a people’s day in a variety of ways:
  • It’s when regional identity takes a backseat and what matters most is the universal appeal of unity and brotherhood projected by all Indians.
  • The Indian constitution basically stands for the aspirations which ‘the common man of India’ cherishes.
  • Republic Day is a day of the citizen of the country when he is entitled to be ‘all supreme.
Republic Day is celebrated most majestically in the capital, New Delhi, where symbols of the great nation's military might and cultural wealth are displayed in what is the world's most impressive parade. All Government buildings are illuminated lending the city the atmosphere of a fairyland. This day is celebrated with much zeal and pride all across the nation.
