The whole Nation is drenched in the hue of tricolor. The spirit of the 26th January celebration is on peek all around the Nation. 26th January marks the celebration of India’s Republic Day which is also known as “Gantantra Diwas”. Indian constitution is considered to be the longest in the world. It was enacted and came into force on January 26, 1950. Our soldiers and leaders sacrificed their precious lives to make India a Republic country. It is that special day when the monarchy was pulled down from the Nation. On 26th January 1950, our country was announced sovereign, radical, and secular. The Indian Constitution asserted equality, freedom, and justice to each and every citizen.
Glorious History of Republic Day
There is a glorious history related to Republic Day. India got free from the British Raj in the year 1947 but India did not have a persistent constitution. After that, the need to have a constitution was quite evident. In order to draft the constitution, a committee was formed. Dr. B.R Ambedkar was appointed as the chairman of that committee with the objective and aim of drafting the Indian constitution. He stated that “If I find the constitution being misused, I shall be the first to burn it,” his words inspired the mass. After making huge efforts for several months, on November 4, 1947, the committee delivered the very first draft of the Indian Constitution. The final adoption and execution of the Indian Constitution took more than 2 years.
