Tiranga Dosa - Without Artificial Color

Republic Day honors the date on which the Constitution of India came into force on 26 January 1950 replacing the Government of India Act as the governing document of India.

While India's Independence Day celebrates its freedom from British Rule, the Republic Day celebrates of coming into force of its constitution. A draft constitution was prepared by the committee and submitted to the Assembly on 4 November 1947. The Constitution was passed by the Constituent Assembly of India on 26 November 1949 but was adopted on 26 January 1950 with a democratic government system, completing the country's transition toward becoming an independent republic.

Delhi Republic Day parade is held in the capital, New Delhi. Commencing from the gates of the Rashtrapati Bhavan (the President's residence), Raisina Hill on Rajpath past the India Gate, this event is the main attraction of India's Republic Day Celebrations lasting 3 days. The parade showcases India's Defence Capability, Cultural and Social Heritage.

When the President arrives, the PBG commander asks the unit to give the National Salute, which is followed by the playing of the Indian National Anthem, Jana Gana Mana, by the Army.

Constitution Day, also known as Samvidhan Divas, is celebrated in India in honour of B. R. Ambedkar, known as the architect of the Indian constitution. Constitution Day is not a public holiday. Various departments of the Government of India celebrated the first Constitution day.
When I was in school, In Every school there were quiz and essay competitions both online and offline on the subject of the constitution of India. There was a lecture on silent features of the constitution in each school. Students of schools and colleges are very keen to celebrate this event and starts preparation around a month before. Students performing well in the academic, sports or other fields of education are honored with the awards, prizes and certificates on this day. Family people celebrate this day with their friends, family and children by participating in activities organized at social places. Every people become ready in the early morning before 8 am to watch the celebration at Rajpath, New Delhi in the news at TV.
