A brief history of the Republic Day Parade
But the events unfolding in later years gave us August 15th as the Indian independence day while January 26, 1950, became Republic Day marks the day the Indian Constitution came into effect
Even as the struggle for independence raged on in India the British were reeling from the aftermath of World War two which came to an end in 1945 when the Labour Party came to power in 1945 in a financially drained Britain talks of granting independence to British colonies including India grew louder.
In 1947 Lord Mountbatten took over as the last Viceroy of India intending to oversee the transfer of power planned by the British Parliament by June 30th, 1948 but with communal tensions and acts of violence rising in the country Mountbatten decided to expedite the process and chose August 15, 1947, instead at that time Mountbatten claimed that by advancing the day.
He was ensuring that there will be no bloodshed or riot he was, of course, to be proven wrong although later he tried to justify this by saying wherever colonial rule has ended there has been bloodshed that is the price you pay.
The Indian independence bill was introduced in the British House of Commons on July 4th, 1947 and within the fortnight it was passed the bill called for the end of British rule in India and the creation of two separate nations India and Pakistan
A little trivia before we go on during World War two Japan had surrendered on August 15, 1945, to the Allies and by September 4, 1945, Mountbatten the then supreme Allied commander of Southeast Asia had signed off on the formal Japanese surrender of Singapore.
The Indian independence bill signs off on August 15th as the date of Independence for both India and Pakistan in his first address to Pakistan Jinnah said August 15th is the birthday of the independent and sovereign state of Pakistan it marks the fulfillment of the destiny of the Muslim nation which made create sacrifices in the past few years to have its homeland but by 1948 Pakistan was celebrating August 14 as the Independence Day marking the day the transfer of power to place.
On 26 November 1949, the Constitution of India was adopted completing India’s transition from a Dominion to a republic but it was on 26 January 1950 that the Constitution came into effect and the day was declared as the Republic Day
this was done to commemorate the PURNA SWARAJ resolution proclaimed by the Indian National Congress 20 years ago on the same date the first Republic Day ceremony held in the Durbar Hall of Rashtrapati Bhavan gave India its first president Dr. Rajendra Prasad and the 31 gun salute that followed announced the birth of the Indian Republic
In the coach drawn by six pass the streets of Delhi to reach over nine for eating with 3,000 officers of the Armed Forces robbed more than 200 while the celebrations for the day take place from 1950 to 1954 in different parts of Delhi, it was in 1955 that the format of the current parade was adopted in Raj birth was chosen as the permanent venue from then on Republic Day parades have become a projection of the cultural heritage military capabilities and achievements of the nation
besides a reflection of India’s changing foreign policy as of 2017 India has hosted chief guests from 44 countries with France being invited the maximum number of times the chief guests are chosen keeping in mind strategic in economic bilateral relations India’s invites till the early 60s were mostly to other non-aligned countries in the mid-1960s Soviet Union became the largest arms supplier to India so countries from the Soviet bloc or those having close ties with the Soviet Union were preferred
them the mid-seventies then White’s became more diverse countries from Africa and Latin America was seen on the guest list this trend continued till late 2000s with a lot of Western countries finding representation on Republic Day from 2010 countries from East Asia have been preferred in the wake of act East policy this year India has invited the Heads of Government of all 10 ASEAN nations.
it’s been suggested that Republic day parades are largely a communist tradition, and besides India observed by only a handful of countries this elaborate show of power is also a large-scale waste of resources according to an RTI query in 2014 RS 320 CR was spent that year on the Republic Day Parade alone
but in this Republic Day Parade is not just about military might it tries to bring together the diverse culture of it states every year the table and performances of the state in union territories exhibit the intrinsic culture giving a glimpse of their way of life not to forget that this parade also gives the opportunity to honor officers from the forces and civilians with bravery Awards from battle tanks in 1950
