Republic day in India is celebrated every year with great honor on 26th January. We celebrate it because on this day our constitution was implemented. On this day in 1950, the Government of India Act, 1935 was replaced with the governing document of India.
After the implementation and approval of the constitution by the Parliament of India, it was decided to celebrate it every year as India had become a republic country on that day. Every year it is commemorated at Rajpath, India Gate in the presence of Honorable President of India. Various deference forces, states, government departments, and school kids perform in the ceremonial parade every year to celebrate the Republic Day of the country.
Most of the people love to visit Rajpath to watch the celebration. And, those who are not able to visit the place sit in their home to watch it live on the TV. There can be some people who are not in India and residing somewhere in the USA or other countries. For them, it is also not so hard to watch the celebration, because they can visit Indian community websites that can provide every update of 26th January celebration direct from India.

Importance of Celebrating 26 January
Republic day is the symbol of true spirit for Independent India. India is the country of people of the different color, cultures, societies, religions, and languages. This day India implemented its own constitution after struggling for years for the independence from the British Rule. Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was the chairman of the Permanent Indian Constitution Committee.
India got freedom from the British Rule on 15 August in 1947. At that time, there was no permanent constitution of India. It came in to effect on 26th January 1950. From that time, Indians celebrate Republic Day every year with zeal.
So, this year you can also watch the celebration on the Television, various news channels, and also get the update from the NRI websites.
