Republic Day honors the date on which the Constitution of India came into effect on 26 January 1950, that India became a federal, democratic republic.

26th January is here again, a celebration of sovereignty, secularity and of being the largest and most flourishing democracy in the world. This year, the Brazil president Jair Bolsonaro will be the chief guest. There will be flags hoisted in schools and offices, sincere resolutions will be made to be more deserving citizens and almost everyone will be watching the parade telecast live on Doordarshan. Republic Day is celebrated every year with much enthusiasm all over the country and to mark the importance of this occasion, a grand parade is held 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.

  1. Republic Day Parade: Let's be honest. There is something incredibly patriotic to be part of the crowds at India Gate and the Red Fort as celebrations begin. There’s no match to the thrill and excitement of physically being there to watch the Republic Day parade live. It starts at Rashtrapati Bhavan(President's House) and proceeds along the Rajpath, past India Gate  and onto the Red Fort. After the President hoists the Indian flag (to the sounds of the National Anthem) at 9am, this vibrant parade begins its procession and continues for approximately three hours.
  2. The Culture:Adding to the colours and pageantry will be more than 30 cultural tableaux or floats from different states showcasing the grand diversity of India. From folk songs to intricately carved murals, from traditional dance to reenactments of state history: the floats have it all. Don’t forget to cheer for your home state from the crowds!
