January 26 marks a special day in the history of our country. On this day, in 1950, India became a Republic. Our very Constitution, that still acts as the source of our rights as Indian citizens was enacted on this day, 70 years ago. The occasion is marked by a ceremonial parade at the Rajpath with military brilliance and cultural diversities. The President, being the supreme commander of the armed forces, took salute from various corps of the Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force and their bands marching past on the Rajpath. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was the chief guest at the 71st Republic Day Parade.
