Tri-Color Eye Frames For The Patriot In You
The 26th of January 1950, is etched in history forever. After the struggle for Independence and the subsequent Partition, young, independent India had a good reason to celebrate. On 26th January, the Constitution came into effect as the governing document of a democratic India, and the day was called the Republic Day of India. The Drafting Committee, with Dr. B. R. Ambedkar as chairman, signed and adopted the two hand-written copies that made the Constitution. This completed the country’s transition towards becoming a truly independent Republic.
First held in 1950, the Republic Day parade has since been an annual ritual. This parade at Rajpath in New Delhi presided over by the President of India, showcases a multi-hued montage of the country’s rich cultural heritage and military prowess. The Republic Day Parade is also a solemn occasion to pay tribute to the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the country and to confer bravery awards on military personnel, citizens and children for showing courage in the face of adversity.

It also depicts that there is life in movement and death in stagnation.
