Republic Day is celebrated to commemorate the day on which a dedicated constitution of India came into effect on January 26, 1950. 

While India had achieved independence from Britain on August 15, 1947 for the first three years the country was governed through the Government of India Act of 1935, which was not formed by Independent Indians.

The chosen high officials of Independent India appointed B.R. Ambedkar the chairman of the drafting committee of the Indian Constitution.

The other six members of the committee were Munshi, Muhammed Sadulla, Alladi Krishnaswamy Iyer, N. Gopalaswami Ayyangar, Khaitan and Mitter.

After more than two years, the constitution of India was completed and solidified the establishment of India’s independent democratic government. 

With the 1950 constitution, the country was officially known as the Republic of India — a sovereign and secular democratic republic that secures all its citizens, justice, liberty, equality, and fraternity.

We broke free from the chains of slavery in 1947, and we formed a separate set of laws in 1950 under which this country is governed. The Laws passed in India are the laws passed by none other than its own people's representatives.
