Republic Day 2020: First Glimpse Of Full Dress Rehearsal As Armed Forces Gear Up For The Parade

India celebrates its 71st Republic Day also known as Ganatantra divas on January 26, 2020 which is also a national holiday in India. Republic Day is celebrated with great pride and enthusiasm throughout India. This day celebrates the anniversary of the Constitution of India and the transition of India from a country under British Raj to Free India. After India got free from the British rule on 15th August 1947, India was headed by King George VI till the constitution of India came into force on 26th January 1950.
