This year we will be celebrating the 70th Republic Day(26th January) of our country, honouring the date on which the Constitution of India came into effect. It was on 26th January 1930 that the National Congress proclaimed the Declaration of Indian Independence. Indians celebrate this day with great enthusiasm and love. With every nook and cranny decked up in tricolour, the day begins with flag hoisting and sweets distribution on this day. However, one of the very popular practices in terms of celebrating Republic Day has remained to dress up the desi way. Especially the kids who surely have some or the other function in their school or neighbourhood.
