Sher Singh in HT City today

This 26th January India will be celebrating its 63rd Republic Day.

With the Republic Day enthusiasm all around us, we went back to our Civics classes from school which reminded us that the date was deliberately chosen to honour the memory of the Declaration of Independence – Purna Swaraj of 1930.

The Constitution was passed on 26th November 1949 and signed on 24th January 1950 but declared officially on the 26th of January.

Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India signing the Constitution of India in 1950, who also hoisted the flag for the Declaration of Independence in Lahore in 1929.
