a little about Republic Day(India).
History of Republic day
The Constitution was adopted on 26 November 1949, and came into effect on
26 January 1950 with a democratic government system, completing the
country's transition towards becoming an independent republic. 26 January
was chosen as the Republic day because it was on this day in 1930 when the
Declaration of Indian Independence (Purna Swaraj) was proclaimed by the
Indian National Congress.

> The green shows our relation to soil, our relation to
the plant life here on which all other life depends.
