Republic Day is one of three Indian national holidays that celebrates the establishment of India’s constitution on January 26, 1950. India gained independence from Britain on August 15, 1947 (a distinct national festival), although the country was essentially controlled under the colonial Government of India Act of 1935 for the first three years.
Shortly after the declaration of independence, a constituent assembly elected by provincial assemblies set about creating a constitution to govern the newly independent nation. After more than two years, India’s constitution was finished, solidifying the country’s autonomous democratic governance. The date of January 26 was chosen as a nod to the Indian National Congress’s Purna Swaraj (full self-rule) proclamation of independence in 1930, which was considered the first tangible step toward independence from Britain.
The Republic of India was established by the 1950 constitution as a “sovereign socialist secular democratic republic” that “secures all its citizen’s justice, liberty, equality, and fraternity,” as stated in the preamble.
The primary event of the occasion is a gigantic parade in New Delhi, India’s capital, that incorporates cultural, historical, and military performances. The prime minister will lay a wreath at the Amar Jawan Jyoti, an arching war memorial, and observe a minute of silence to remember lost troops.
As most companies, schools, and government offices are closed, smaller parades, cultural activities, public festivities, and private parties take place around the country. The festivities conclude on January 29 with the Beating Retreat Ceremony in New Delhi, which features bands from the Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force.
