january 26 is celebrated as our Republic Day. We celebrate this day every year. It was on this day in 1950 that Indian became the Sovereign Democratic Republic and had a constitution of its own. The Republic Day is celebrated all over the country with great pomp and show. In Delhi, it is celebrated amidst great enthusiasm and joy. In my school also the Republic day is celebrated with a lot of grandeur. The Girls and Boys Scouts first parade before the administration and the Chief Guest. We then sing the national anthem. All the four Houses in my school then compete in various activities like dance, singing and oration, all of which is centred around a patriotic theme. The Chief Guest is often a member of the armed forces who inspire us with their disciplined demeanour and precision.
