Republic Day is celebrated in Bodangiparthy every year with a flag-hoisting ceremony.

This ceremony takes place on the campus where the junior college, high school and primary school is located. Republic Day is a day to remember when the Constitution of India officially came into force on January 26, 1950.

This historical act formally transitioned India to become an independent republic and hence it is celebrated on January 26 every year. It has been noted that though India gained freedom from the British rule after a long struggle in the wee hours of August 15, 1947.

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru delivered his famous speech ‘Tryst with Destiny’, declaring India’s independence to the citizens. But sadly, this freedom did not come along with democracy and the right to choose your own Government. Since India did not have an official Constitution then, our country was a constitutional monarchy under the rule of King George VI even after Independence.

It was finally after two and half years later on January 26, 1950, when the Indian Constitution came into effect thus making India one of the biggest democracies in the world. It was on this day when India was declared as a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic.

And to honour this day, the Indian Republic Day is celebrated with great fervour throughout the country every year on January 26. These events are attended by students, parents, trustees, faculty,dignitaries and others. The flag-hoisting ceremony is followed by cultural activities.
