Republic Day in India

January 26 is a national holiday in India. On this date in 1950, the country's Constitution came into force and India became a sovereign nation. For Gandhi and those who fought bravely for the nation, some goals and dreams were finally realized. As part of the celebrations, a major parade is held in New Delhi and some major cities. While going for a walk this morning, I spotted these flags and garland of flowers over a gate. Happy Republic Day, India!
