Republic Day is a day to remember when India’s constitution came into force on January 26, 1950, completing the country’s transition towards becoming an independent republic which is celebrated every year in India.
Every year Republic Day is celebrated with great excitement and enthusiasm. A grand parade is held in New Delhi with the arrival of the President, the unfurling of the national flag, the 21 gun salute, the marching regiments, the state tableaus, the performances by school children. Each of these lend meaning to our Republic Day and a great pride for our country. Bravery awards and medals are given to the people from the armed forces and also to civilians. Armed forces helicopters then fly past the parade area showering rose petals on the audience.
