Republic Day is celebrated on January 26 every year in India. The very mention of the Republic Day brings to our mind the famous R-Day parade and the tableaus that are showcased at Rajpath in the national capital, which celebrates our the strength, acheivements and cultural diversity. This year, the nation will celebrate its 70th Republic Day.

Republic day in India is celebrated every year with great pride on 26th of January to honour the Constitution of India as it came into force on the same day in the year 1950. It had replaced the Government of India Act, 1935 into the governing document of India.

On this day, national holiday is declared by the Indian Government. The new Indian Constitution was sketched and approved by the Indian Constituent Assembly and decided to celebrate it on 26th of January every year as India became a republic country.

“Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa“, the fifth and current President of South Africa will be the Chief Guest on 70th Republic Day of India 2019.

Cyril Ramaphosa was invited by the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi during the G20 summit which was held in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. He (from South Africa) was especially chosen for this occasion because India is celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi who had very close links with the people of South Africa. PM Modi said that the visit of the South African President to India will help in enhancing the ties between the two countries.

The main Republic Day Parade gets underway at 9.30 a.m., following the flag hoisting at 9 a.m., on January 26 each year. It runs for around three hours. A full dress rehearsal is also held a few days before the actual event.

The Republic Day Parade takes places along Rajpath, in Delhi. Its route, which is more than five kilometers long, sets out from Raisina Hill near Rashtrapati Bhavan (President's Palace) and follows Rajpath past India Gate and on to the Red Fort.

The Republic Day celebration this year will be very special as 2019 will also mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi and the yearlong celebration will get started from Republic Day by paying tribute to him.

17 tableaux from states/Union Territories and 6 from the ministries have been shortlisted this year to be the part of the Republic Day celebrations with the theme ‘Gandhi’.
