A Rajasthan Tabloid at Republic Day Function, New Delhi, India. Although India obtained its independence on August 15, 1947, the Constitution of India came into effect only on January 26, 1950. During the transition period from 1947 to 1950, King George VI was the head of country. C. Rajagopalachari served as the Governor-General of India during this period. Following January 26, 1950, Rajendra Prasad was elected as the president of India.
Marking the 60th Republic Day: To mark the importance of this occasion, every year a grand parade is held in the capital, New Delhi, from the Raisina Hill near the Rashtrapati Bhavan (President's Palace), along the Rajpath, past India Gate and on to the historic Red Fort. The different regiments of the Army, the Navy and the Air Force march past in all their finery and official decorations.
The President of India who is the Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Armed Forces, takes the salute. Parades demonstrating the cultures of the various states and regions of India are also held and broadcast nationwide on television. The parade also includes vibrant displays and floats and traditionally ends with a flypast by Indian Air Force jets.

The day also signifies the adoption of the Constitution of India. It is regarded in the present days as one of the three national holidays in India.
Disciplined :It is also the day when the entire country realized the dream of Mahatma Gandhi and the numerous freedom fighters who, fought for and sacrificed their lives for the Independence of their country. To mark the importance of the occasion the Republic Day is celebrated with a lot of enthusiasm all over the country and especially in the capital New Delhi, where the celebrations are initiated with the Presidential to the nation.
The National Flag at India Gate: But this is also followed by the solemn reminder of the role and sacrifice of the martyrs who died for the sake of the country in the freedom movement and also in the succeeding wars for the defense of sovereignty of their country.

It is found that each display brings out with it the multiplicity and richness of the culture of India and the whole show lends a festive air to the occasion.

It makes the people proud of their country and also reminds them of the conviction of the slained martyrs in the battlefields of the freedom struggle and wars.

Its good that none of us was beaten by some gang of goons on 24rth of january night like the girls and boys who suffered the curse of Shri Ram Sena in Mangalore.

Otherwise we might not have been able to say “Happy Republicans Day” so happily.

I maintain that India is yet not free as freedom is the independence of Man from men, it is the sovereignty of individual to act rationally. Freedom doesn’t mean rule of majority, even Savages follows the rule of their cults!

but then its just the start of the proceedings. Such proceedings will go up till 14rth of februry. Innocent girls and boys will be harassed, beaten and assaulted becoz some section will think they are hurting Indian culture.
Anyways, since none of us was there in that mangalore pub where those innocent youth were harassed, hence we can say Happy Republicans day. Does it make one feel to be in the group of those who were beaten, or in the group of those who harassed them? Or may it just doesn’t matter anymore.

Those who say India is free doesn't understand what freedom is.

it is true that India got freedom against britishers in 1947.
Indians are yet not free though.
India is still struggling against slavery
