India became independent on 15 August 1947 and became republic on 26 January 1950. We get a holiday on this day. As a kid my ritual of the day used to be getting up at 8 and switch on TV, and this continues till date.
I love watching India Gate and all the proceedings there. Then that 3 hour long parade where forces, culture all conglomerate to display diversified India. I love it. I can do it 365 days but 26th January is special day to do this.
I am going to take an off from writing today, and just pasting some of my favorite photographs of the day.
Happy Republic Day to everyone :)
