India declared itself a Sovereign, Democratic and Republic state with the adoption of the Constitution on January 26, 1950.
Interestingly, January 26 was selected 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 as opposed to the Dominion status offered by British Regime.
Here's wishing our readers a very happy Republic Day.
