The country is celebrating 72nd Republic Day today. Every year in India, this mahaparva of democracy is celebrated with great pomp and grand manner. But this time due to Corona, many changes will be seen in the Republic Day celebrations.
Republic Day is celebrated every year on 26 January to commemorate the day the Constitution of India came into effect. Even though we had gained independence on 15 August, 1947, nascent India did not have its own laws which were drafted and finally adopted in the year 1950.
Republic Day main celebration is held at the Rajpath in the national capital, New Delhi, before the President of India. On this day, ceremonious parades take place at the Rajpath, which are performed as a tribute to India; its unity in diversity and rich cultural heritage.
On the occasion of Republic Day, schools and colleges also organise functions at their campus like – debate, speech, essay competitions etc.
This year on account of the coronavirus, the festivities of Republic Day may be dampened but the spirit will be as strong as ever, and everyone with bask in patriotism with pride.
Significance of Republic Day:
After gaining independence from the British rule, the new constitution was drafted by the drafting committee helmed by Dr.BR Ambedkar. The Indian Constitution came into effect on 26 January1950, which affirmed India’s existence as an independent republic. January 26th was chosen as the date because on this day in 1930, the Indian National Congress proclaimed Purna Swaraj, the declaration of India’s independence from the colonial rule.
