26th January is among the most significant occasion celebrated in India. On 26th January 1950, the constitution of India was enforced and India achieved its pledge of becoming a totally sovereign, democratic and republic nation.

Many grand events and programs are organized throughout India depicting love and patriotism. Not to forget the most alluring grand celebration in the capital city of India, New Delhi. A massive parade is held which begins from the President’s Palace and walks past the Rajpath and India Gate, terminating at the Red Fort in the Walled City of Old Delhi.
