Republic Day 2023
Republic Day of India marks the day when the Constitution of India came into effect, making India a republic. The Constitution was adopted by the Indian Constituent Assembly on November 26, 1949, and came into effect on January 26, 1950, making India the largest democracy in the world. The Constitution is a cornerstone of Indian democracy and the country's first attempt to create a modern, secular government. It guarantees basic rights to all citizens and stipulates that the government is subject to the rule of law.
The date January 26 was chosen because it was the date in 1930 when Mahatma Gandhi made his famous "Quit India" speech calling for Indians to boycott British goods in protest against the rule of the British over India. This movement eventually resulted in Indian independence in 1947.
Also, January 26 was the day that the first session of Indian National Congress was held in London in 1885, thus marking the beginning of the struggle for India's independence from British rule.
