Every year Independence Day is celebrated in the same way at the Red Fort. At the same time, on the occasion of Republic Day (26 January), President hoists the tricolor on the Rajpath and salutes it. Do you know why the two national celebrations are different? What is the difference between hoisting the flag on both days?
The national flag of any country is its identity. Not only the soldiers but also the general public is ready to sacrifice all the time to maintain its glory. Many people sacrificed it to maintain India's independence and its unbroken, keeping it the honor of the tricolor. In such a situation, we also need to know all about it.
The country gained independence on August 15. The Indian flag was hoisted and hoisted on the same day by taking off the British flag. This process of hoisting the flag from the bottom to the top is called flag hoisting. Therefore, flag hoisting is done on 15 August. At the same time, our constitution came into force on 26 January. Therefore on that day the flag already tied above is hoisted only.
On 15 August, the Prime Minister hoists the flag. On the 26th of January, the President hoists the flag. This happens because the Prime Minister is the political head of the country, while the President is the constitutional head. The Constitution came into force on 26 January 1950, so the President hoists the flag on Republic Day. Earlier, there was neither a constitution nor a President of independent India.
The Independence Day celebrations are held at the Red Fort itself. In fact, on 15 August 1947, when the country became independent, India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru hoisted the Indian flag from above the Lahori Gate in the Red Fort, Delhi. On 26 January 1950, when the Constitution of independent India came into force, the first Republic Day celebrations were held at Rajpath. In the following years, Republic Day was also organized at a few different places.
On 15 August, the Prime Minister addresses the country from the Red Fort, while on its eve means the President addresses the nation on the evening of 14 August. There is no address on the occasion of Republic Day.
The days of 15 August and 26 January are the most important in the history of the country. On both days, public functions are held at the government level in the country's capital, Delhi. Many programs are organized on this occasion in other parts of the country and also in all states. Despite these, there is some fundamental difference in these programs. The parade is not organized on 15 August, while on 26 January there is a long parade of soldiers, paramilitary forces, etc. It also includes savory snacks and colorful programs. Through the Republic Day celebrations, the country showcases its military prowess and culture in water, land, and sky.
It is not customary to call any chief guest from outside in the program of the August 15 program, while on 26 January, some head of state is invited as the chief guest.
