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. On this day, India got declared as a democratic republic nation.
After the Constitution came into force, Dr Rajendra Prasad was elected as the first president of India. Apart from celebrating the day with the sense of patriotism in every Indian's heart, we also look forward to the grand parade which is held in New Delhi with great pomp and show. The Parade showcasing India’s military might will be presided over by President Ram Nath Kovind, who is the Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces. The Parade will start with the hoisting of the national flag by the President of India.
