A Short Note on 26th January Indian Republic Day
Republic Day is an important day for the people of India. India will be celebrating its 69th Republic Day on Friday, 26th January 2018. The First Republic Day of India was celebrated in the year 1950.
India celebrates a great national festival in the form of ‘Republic Day’ on the 26th January every year with full enthusiasm and glee.
India received independence on August 15, 1947. We had to fight a lot for freedom and many people sacrificed their lives for it. Thousands of people went to jail during the freedom struggle, and then our leaders had decided to establish the Republic of India. Some great leaders and educated people made a new constitution of India and the Constitution was implemented from January 26, 1950.
Reason Behind Celebrating The Republic Day
About two and a half years later, India implemented its constitution and declared itself as a democratic republic. After nearly 2 years 11 months and 18 days on January 26, 1950, our Parliament passed the Indian Constitution. That Constitution is the root cause of actually celebrating this day like Republic Day on 26th January. Our Constitution of Independent India was enforced on January 26, 1950.
According to the same Ganatantri constitution, it was also declared on this day that the person who will be the supreme power of the country will be called a President.
India became a republic, it was the day written in golden letters in the history of our country. India became a sovereign republic soon after the constitution was created with the tireless efforts of Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar and his colleagues. The Republic means – a system of governance in which power is contained in the masses. Even when our country was liberated from the British rule on August 15, 1945, this freedom was actually found after the country was declared as a Republic Nation.

Republic Day is our national festival. This day is celebrated with a public holiday. A grand parade is organized from the Rashtrapati Bhavan to the Red Fort and people watch it on TV.
