    CLASS – VI

    Republic Day is celebrated on January 26 in India every year. This year, the country will be celebrating its 73rd Republic Day. The Constitution of India was adopted by the Constituent Assembly on November 26, 1949, and it came into effect on January 26, 1950. From this year, Republic Day celebrations will start on January 23, the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and will end on January 30, the day Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated. The main Republic Day celebration is held in the national capital, New Delhi, at the Rajpath before the President of India. Schools and colleges also organise functions, cultural dances, speech and essay writing competitions and distribute sweets.
