Happy Republic Day!!

26th January 1950 was one of the most important days in Indian history as on that day the constitution of India came into existence. India became a truly sovereign state ever since 26th January has been celebrated as a national holiday and is celebrated as The Republic Day of India.

To mark the importance of this occasion, every year a grand parade is held in the capital, from the Rajghat, along the Vijaypath. The different regiments of the army, the Navy and the Air Force march past in all their finery and official decorations even the horses of the cavalry are attractively caparisoned to suit the occasion. The crème of N.C.C cadets, selected from all over the country consider it an honour to participate in this event, as do the school children from various schools in the capital.

The parade is followed by a pageant of spectacular displays from the different states of the country. These moving exhibits depict scenes of activities of people in those states and the music and songs of that particular state accompany each display. Each display brings out the diversity and richness of the culture of India and the whole show lends a festive air to the occasion.

The Republic Day of India sparks a patriotic fervor in the heart of every Indian. It is a day to remember and honour Indian heroes and renew the pledge to protect and cherish their motherland. This fervor of the people brings the whole country together even in her essential diversity. Every part of the country is represented in occasion, which makes the Republic Day the most popular of all the national holidays of India.
