Celebrated every year in India on 26th January, Republic Day honors the date on which the Constitution of India came into force in 1950. The Constitution, which was passed by the Constituent Assembly of India on 26 November 1949, was adopted on 26th January 1950 with a democratic government system. 26th January was selected for this purpose because it was this day in 1930 when the Declaration of Indian Independence (Purna Swaraj) was proclaimed by the Indian National Congress. It is one of three national holidays in the country.
Wishing every Indian a very Happy 65th Republic Day. Jai Hind!
