    January 26 was the date when the Constitution of India replaced the Government of India Act 1935. It meant that till then (from August 15, 1947, our laws were modified British laws. George VI was head of state and earl Mountbatten was Governor general. The date was chosen in the memory of the Purna Swaraj — Indian National Congress’ declaration of independence in 1930. So even before independence, this day was being celebrated.

    The official conclusion of republic day festivities is on 30 January, four days after the Republic day. The Beating Retreat is the highlight.
    The grand and majestic Republic Day in New Delhi sets off from the Raisina Hill near the presidential palace (Rashtrapati Bhavan) along the Rajpath, and traverses India Gate and reaches the historic Red Fort. The Prime Minister lays a floral wreath at the Amar Jawan Jyoti, a memorial to unknown soldiers at the India Gate. Then he goes to the main dais at Rajpath.The President comes along with the chief guest, unfurls the Tricolour as the National Anthem is played, and a 21-gun salute is given. National awards like the Ashok Chakra and Kirti Chakra are given.
