India Republic Day is a holiday celebrated throughout the Indian subcontinent.
This holiday honors the day that the Constitution of India took effect, on January 26th of 1950. The celebration has been held on that same date each year ever since.
This widespread national holiday features parades, speeches, music, and cultural dances.
Every year, India's President distributes the Padma Awards, an important civilian award that honors distinguished public service.
