Happy Republic Day

"Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high...
...Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, Let my Country awake."
----Rabindranath Tagore

"Cherish your Dreams for more united India on This Republic Day...."
"Happy Republic Day"

The Constitution of India came into force, and India declared itself a Republic on January 26, 1950, a date thereafter celebrated annually as Republic Day in India. The 60th Republic Day of India will be celebrated all over the country tomorrow 26th January 2010. The chief guest for this year’s Republic Day celebration in India will be Lee Myung bak, the President of the Republic of Korea. Republic day parade is beginning from Raisina Hill near the Rashtrapati Bhavan, along the Rajpath, past India Gate and on to the historic Red Fort in the old quarter of the city. Different infantry, cavalry and mechanized regiments of the Indian Army, the Indian Navy and the Indian Air Force march in formation, decked in all their finery and official decorations.
The President of India, who is also the Commander in Chief of the Indian Armed Forces, takes the salute. The Chief Guest of the parade is a Head of State of another nation. The parade also includes many traditional dance troupes, to symbolize the cultural heritage of India. It traditionally ends with a colourful flypast by Air Force jets in a tiranga formation. Similar parades are held in the capitals of all the states of India, where the Governors of the respective states take the salute.
