Happy Republic Day 2021: 72nd Republic Day is finally here! If there’s still someone who doesn’t know why we celebrate January 26 every year, here it goes. Our country became a ‘sovereign democratic republic’ and our constitution came into existence on this day in 1950 replacing the Government of India Act (1935) as the governing document of India. This day holds a special significance in the hearts of the Indians as many reach out to the Rajpath in the capital city of New Delhi where the Republic Day parade takes place. Well, this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the farmers’ protest, the situation and the celebration will be slightly different.
Talking about the general routine of the celebration, year after year, we’ve been witnessing the President taking the salute as the head of the country from the contingents of police and armed forces at the India Gate. The Indian National Flag gets unfurled followed by 21 gun salutes and marching of regiments. Foreign dignitaries, guests, and delegates are also invited to witness the cultural beauty and military might of the country. Besides tableaux and parade, gallantry awards are also awarded to those who demonstrated immense bravery, thus inspiring us to be selfless.
It is a day of pride for all the Indians and therefore wishing your near and dear ones on social media become crucial. This is the reason why we’ve brought forth the wishes, quotes, greetings, WhatsApp, SMS, Facebook messages which you can send your family & friends on Republic Day 2021.
