Today is Republic Day. India is celebrating its 72nd Republic Day. It is a day when all Indians - young and old - feel proud of the country's strength, unity and diversity. On 26th January, 1950 the Constitution of India came into force and India became an independent republic with a democratic government. This year's Republic Day is a relatively low-key affair due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Only 25,000 people will be allowed to attend the Republic Day ceremony at Rajpath instead of a lakh-plus spectators in the previous years. The Republic Day parade route is also shorter. Instead of marching up to the Red Fort, it will end at National Stadium and only the tableaux will perform at Red Fort. The ceremonies may be on a smaller scale but that does not stop us from sharing our happiness and excitement on Republic Day. Here is a collection of Republic Day wishes, greetings cards and quotes to share with friends and family.
