Equality, Secularity and Liberty are the essential words that were added to the backbone of India on 26th January 1950. It was that day when India became Republic. Today, we Indians celebrate this very special day on Saturday, as 70th Republic day. The citizens of India celebrate Republic day with great zeal and pride to honour the Constitution of India. The patriotic songs such as वन्दे मातरम, सारे जहाँ से अच्छा .. echoes in the air. On this day, the Indian Government declare the National Holiday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay a floral wreath at the Amar Jawan Jyoti and President Ram Nath Kovind will hoist the flag at 7.00 am after which the 70th Republic Day parade will kick off from Rajpath at 9.50 am.
India doesn’t forget to practice its “Athiti Devo Bhawa” motion on Republic Day. That’s the reason various prominent personalities are invited from different countries to be the guest and a part of the spectacular Republic day celebration. This year, the President of South Africa Cyril Ramaphosa is invited as the Chief Guest of the day.
