India’s Republic Day is celebrated annually on January 26

It commemorates the enactment of the constitution of India on January 26, 1950.

The Purna Swaraj declaration of independence by the Indian National Congress in 1930 was a significant step toward independence.

After independence in 1947, a constituent assembly drafted a constitution for the newly independent nation.

The constitution established India as a “sovereign socialist secular democratic republic”.

The main event is a massive parade in New Delhi, featuring cultural, historical, and military displays.

Smaller parades, cultural programs, and public celebrations take place throughout the country
