Republic Day 2021

With India all set to celebrate its 72nd Republic Day, the event spearheads with a speech from the President, an exhibition from the military, parade, hoisting of the National flag, few cultural performances followed by honoring the brave hearts of our nation. Republic Day has a huge significance for our nation which is one of the biggest democracies in the world. On 26th January 1950, the Constitution of India was incepted, making it a democratic, sovereign, and secular country.

The Constitution of India implies equality for everyone irrespective of their religion, caste, creed, gender, etc. After India attained independence in 1947, the Constituent Assembly was assigned the responsibility of drafting the Constitution of India. The Constituent Assembly chaired by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar consisted of the indirectly elected representatives.

For India, just like any other independent country, the Constitution is most important as it empowers its citizens to form democracy by electing their own government.

The celebrations of Republic Day in Karnataka are as colorful and fascinating as they are on the Rajpath. Impressive march past, vivid cultural performances, and awe-inspiring stunts by the defense personnel keep the audience engrossed throughout. Not just this, but several theatre village artists, students from various schools and colleges of the state participate in the Republic Day Celebration held at Rajpath.

At the 71st Republic Day celebrations, 28 students from the Shivakumara Ranga Prayoga Shale showcased the very first socio-religious parliament in the history of humans known as ‘Anubhava Mantapa’.

The philosophy of Anubhava Mantapa was professed by the 12th-century social reformer and saint, Basaveshwara.

Considered to be the very first socio-religious parliament in the history of human existence, it was a school of saints, philosophers, and mystics. The propaganda of the academy was to spread equality, philosophy, and spirituality.

That’s how the state has been making the nation proud with its exclusive presentations. Then whether it is at the Rajpath or in the state itself, whether the Republic day celebration is big or small, the spirit of the countrymen is worth admiring.

In the wake of the pandemic implications, this year’s 72nd Republic Day celebrations will be a low key affair. This is the first time that India will be celebrating the day without any foreign leader as chief guest. The number of participating children and folk artists has been restricted to 400 as compared to 600 last year.

In another first, Flight Lieutenant Bhawana Kanth is all set to create history as she will be the first woman fighter pilot to be a part of the Republic Day this year.
