Though India became a free nation on August 15, 1947, it declared itself a sovereign, Democratic and Republic state with the adoption of the Constitution on January 26, 1950. One thing is for sure, that as Indians, we love two days more than any festival. We dress up in tricolour clothes and wave the flag of India, proudly. We sing our favorite patriotic songs and remember ceremoniously those who lay down their lives to give us this freedom that we live in.
