Republic Day Greetings
- It was the Lahore Session of the Indian National Congress at midnight
of December 31, 1929 - January 1, 1930, that the Tri-Colour Flag was
unfurled by the nationalists and a pledge taken that every year on
January 26, the "Independence Day" would be celebrated and that the
people would unceasingly strive for the establishment of a Sovereign
Democratic Republic of India. The professed pledge was successfully
redeemed on January 26, 1950, when the Constitution of India framed by
the Constituent Assembly of India came into force, although the
Independence from the British rule was achieved on August 15, 1947.
We the moderators of this forum wish you all a Happy Republic Day.
Let us all work together for the unity and development of our nation.
