Auspicious wishes for INDIA that is BHARAT to be the “Vishwaguru” for GLOBAL PEACE & PROSPERITY!


Republic Day honours the date on which the Constitution of India came into effect on 26 January 1950 replacing the Government of India Act (1935) as the governing document of India.

The Constitution was adopted by the Indian Constituent Assembly on 26 November 1949, and came into effect on 26 January 1950 with a democratic government system, completing the country’s transition towards becoming an independent republic.
26 January was chosen as the Republic day because it was on this day in 1930 when Declaration of Indian Independence (Purna Swaraj) was proclaimed by the Indian National Congress as opposed to the Dominion status offered by British Regime.

India obtained its independence on 15 August 1947 as a constitutional monarchy with George VI as head of state and the Earl Mountbatten as governor-general. The country, though, did not yet have a permanent constitution; instead its laws were based on the modified colonial Government of India Act 1935.
On 28 August 1947, the Drafting Committee was appointed to draft a permanent constitution, with Dr B R Ambedkar as chairman.
While India’s Independence Day celebrates its freedom from British Rule, the Republic Day celebrates the coming into force of its Constitution.
A draft Constitution was prepared by the committee and submitted to the Assembly on 4 November 1947.
The Assembly met, in sessions open to public, for 166 days, spread over a period of two years, 11 months and 18 days before adopting the Constitution. After many deliberations and some modifications, the 308 members of the Assembly signed two hand-written copies of the document (one each in Hindi and English) on 24 January 1950. Two days later, it came into effect throughout the whole nation.

India abolished the role of the constitutional monarchy and became a federal, democratic republic after its constitution came into effect on 26 January 1950; henceforth celebrated as Republic Day.
The governmental structure was similar to that of the United Kingdom but within a federal system.

Salutations to all our Indians for their Supreme Sacrifice, Persistent Efforts and Belief in Independence and Democracy.

The freedom and power of being the largest Democracy in the world-
the Resilience and Resolve in facing aggression at our borders with diplomacy; The Compassion in Caring for the World with the free supply of Medicine during pandemic;
the scientific advancement in space, land and sea;
The green initiatives,
The Make in India program;
The Cultural renaissance; the economic and military might;
the global leadership and so on…

The Patriotism in celebrating The Republic Day at Heart.
Signs of a Vibrant India !
Jai Hind.
VANDE Mataram.

Happy and Proud 75th Republic Day
