Republic Day honours the date on which
the Constitution of India came into effect on 26 January 1950
replacing the Government of India Act (1935) as the governing
document of India.
The Constitution was adopted by the Indian Constituent Assembly
on 26 November 1949 and came into effect on 26 January 1950 with a democratic
government system, completing the country’s transition towards becoming an
independent republic. 26 January was chosen as the Republic day because it was
on this day in 1929 when the Declaration of Indian Independence (Purna Swaraj)
was proclaimed by the Indian National Congress as opposed to the Dominion
status offered by British Regime.
Republic day was celebrated at the school where 500 people
participated and pledge communal harmony and social development in rural areas.
