Republic day is to honour the date of the Constitution of Indian coming into being. The constitution that replaced the Government of India Act of 1935 on January 26th, 1950.

The Constitution bill was passed on November 26th 1949 but was not declared until January 26th 1950 that then also established the democracy in India. After India gained independence on August 15th 1947, there was no fixed constitutional law. A Drafting Committee was set on August 28th 1947 to form constitutional laws so India has its freedom from the British set Indian Act of 1935. So, while India gained independence from the British Raaj on August 15th, 1947, it is often said that Republic Day marks the Constitution being implemented.


The celebrations in India happen for three consecutive days. It is an announced Public holiday. The main celebrations take place in the Rajpath, New Delhi in front of the president. A grand parade is what the day starts with near the Rashtrapati Bhavan (President's residence), after which the President places the flower wreath on the Amar Jawan Jyoti, in a memorial remembrance of the soldiers who died serving the country. Following this is the two minute silence.

To end the celebrations of Republic Day, the Beating Retreat Ceremony is performed in which Mahatama Ghandi's favourite hymn is remembered, the forces servants sing the National Anthem and ends with "Saare Jahaan Se Acha."

Here's hoping a great and peaceful Republic Day, to all the Indians on India-Forums.

Jai Hind,

Pleasure without conscience,
Knowledge without character,

Happy Republic Day, India. 

Let's use this day to at least try and clean the unwanted trash *ahem* from the country. We know what trash I'm referring to.

I will point out the Delhi sexual assault case which not only happened on 16th December 2012, but has been continuously happening in India for the past decades; many of which we might not even be aware about probably because the media did not cover them. Am I wrong to say that India is not a safe place to live in? And that it is in the top 10 countries having the highest crime rate in the world?

So I suggest that instead of wasting money in a false charade of celebrating the Republic Day, the government actually needs to spend that money as a means of establishing protection for women and children in India; by re defining the laws for anyone who thinks about breaking them. After all, this was the main objective of making India a republic; so that Indians are not bind to anyone else, but themselves.

With love,
An Indian who is scared to live, or even return to India.
