theFundooGeek! wishing from USA :

India celebrates her Republic Day every January 26th to commemorate the date on which the Constitution of India came into effect in 1950.
Traditionally, since 1950 every year leaders from different countries are chosen and invited as the State Guest of Honor at the Republic Day Parade in Delhi. This year the honor goes to the first woman Prime Minister of Thailand, Yingluck Shinawatra.

Annually, the Republic Day in India is celebrated with much passion in the entire country and also by Indians abroad. As part of the federal celebrations, an impressive parade is held in New Delhi from Raisina Hill next to Rashtrapati Bhavan (the President’s House), beside the Rajpath, before India entrance and on to the notable Red Fort. The parade starts with the India’s President laying a headdress at the Indian Gate at the Amar Jawan Jyoti, honoring all the brave soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for the nation.

A twenty one gun salute is tendered, the National Anthem is played and the President unfurls the National Flag. This indicates the opening of the parade. The President of India, who is also the Indian Armed Forces Commander-in-Chief, takes the salutation at the impressive parade.

On Republic Day, martyrs and heroes who showed courage and bravery for country's sake without bothering their own lives are also remembered and conferred prestigious and significant awards including Kirti Chakra and Ashok Chakra are conferred on the event by the President.


To our Indian patrons, best wishes on India's Republic Day from all of us @ FundooGeek.com
