Today India celebrates its 62nd republic day .
So we at India-forums salute our great nation as world's largest democracy and secular nation.
Lets start  Republic day celebrations with a visual tribute to our great nation with a slide show and voice of Rabinder Nath Tagore reciting the National Anthem.
(Rabinder Nath Tagore wrote our National Anthem ,this recitation was done first time in 1911 in Calcutta)

 On this day 1950 India's constitution  came in force and India was declared as a republic with its own head of state and own constitution.
Also on this day 26 January 1930 Tiranga(Indian Flag ) was first unfurled by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in Lahore and call for complete independence from British govt was made.

In 1965 on this day Hindi was declared as National Language of India.
   to mark the 62nd republic day celebrations are being held as a grand parade in the capital, New Delhi, from Raisina Hill near the Rashtrapati Bhavan (President's House), along the Rajpath, past India Gate and on to the historic Red Fort.

 Awards and medals of bravery are given by the President to the people from the armed forces for their exceptional courage in the field and also to those civilians who have distinguished themselves by their different acts  in different situations.

  The fly past marks the conclusion of the parade, when fighter planes of the IAF roar past the dais, symbolically saluting the President.

Down the Memory Lane
26 January 1950
India's first president took oath to office .

Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the first President of Independent India, in his special message to his countrymen, on the birth of the Indian Republic, said:

"We must re-dedicate ourselves on this day to the peaceful but sure realization of the dream that had inspired the Father of our Nation and the other captains and soldiers of our freedom struggle, the dream of establishing a classless, co-operative, free and happy society in 'his country'. We must remember that this is more a day of dedications than of rejoicing - dedication to the glorious task of making the peasants and workers the toilers and the thinkers fully free, happy and cultured."

 Proud to be Indian
Our National Symbols..
Emblem of India is replica of Lion of Sarnath erected by  contemporary Ashoka in 3rd BC in memory of Buddha ; It is thus symbolic of The National India's reaffirmation of its ancient commitment to world peace and goodwill.The four lions (one hidden from view) - symbolizing power, courage and confidence - rest on a circular abacus. The abacus is girded by four smaller animals - guardians of the four directions: the lion of the north, the elephant of the east, the horse of the south and the bull of the west.  The abacus rests on a lotus in full bloom, exemplifying the fountainhead of life and creative inspiration. The motto 'Satyameva Jayate' inscribed below the emblem in Devanagari script means 'truth alone triumphs

The National Flower  - Lotus

The Lotus flower symbolizes fertility, wealth, knowledge and enlightenment .It is also regarded as symbol of triumph as it can survive to  re germinate for thousands of years . Lotus represents long life,honor and good  fortune.Untouched by the impurity despite growing in the mud, the  flower is also meant to symbolize purity of heart and mind.

National Animal -Tiger

The combination of grace, strength, agility and enormous power has earned the tiger its pride of place as the national animal of India.

The National game of India is Hockey.

National River of India is Ganga

Ganga is life of India and is longest river in India. Along with many other rivers it creates one of the world's most fertile land for crop production.

National Fruit -Mango

Mango -cultivated in India from ancient times is National fruit of India.It is called "Food of the Gods" in sacred vedas.

So today lets pray for peace and prosperity of our great
nation and world peace.Lets salute our heroes and remember their sacrifices .
Lets all sing our National song together ,remembering Bankim Chander Chatterjee(writer of our national song Vande Matram) and countless others who sacrificed so we could have Today's India.
Vande matram..
Vande Matram..
Once Again Happy Republic Day and Jai hind
