72nd India Republic Day 2021
- 26, January 1950 was the day in Indian history when our Constitution came into effect replacing the Government of India Act (1935) and turned our nation into a republic.
- The date was chosen as 26th January because it concurred with the anniversary of Purna Swaraj Day (26th January 1930).
- Our Constitution took about 2 years, 11 months and 18 days to be drafted, and was done by a Drafting Committee led by Dr. BR Ambedkar.
- Ours is the longest written constitution in the world.
