Republic Day of India: This Sunday, India is celebrating its 71st Republic Day. January 26 was when the Indian Constitution came into effect and the day is thus celebrated as Republic Day. While the Constituent Assembly adopted the Constitution on November 26, 1949, it chose January 26, 1950, as the day for the Constitution to come into effect because on January 26, 1929, the Indian National Congress had proclaimed the declaration for Purna Swaraj.
Republic Day is celebrated at the Rajpath with a parade in which tableaus from different states and institutions take part. Apart from that, Padma Awards, Bharat Ratna and Kirti Chakra are also felicitated on the occasion of Republic Day. Every year, a chief guest is invited for the parade and for Republic Day 2020, Jair Bolsonaro, the President of Brazil, is the chief guest.
