Tips to celebrate Republic Day with your family

Happy Republic Day

“Freedom in our Mind, Faith in our Words, Pride in our Heart and Memories in our Souls.

Let’s Salute the Nation on Republic Day.”

India became a free nation on August 15, 1947, although it declared itself as a Sovereign, Democratic and Republic State with the adoption of the Constitution on 26th January, 1950. 66 years back, a salute of 21 guns and the unfurling of the Indian National Flag by Dr. Rajendra Prasad (the First President of India) announced the historic birth of the Indian Republic, 894 days after our country became independent, following the withdrawal of the British Rule. Since then, every year, this day is celebrated with great pride and happiness all across the nation.

The transition of India from a British colony to a sovereign, secular and a democratic nation was a very long journey, which lasted for about 2 decades (20 years). It started with the conceptualization of the dream in 1930, when the Declaration of Independence was officially announced on 26th January, 1930. The Congress regularly observed 26th January as the Independence Day of India since then, until 15th August became the official Independence Day. The actual realization of the dream of a republic nation took place 20 years later, in 1950, when the Constitution of India, as drafted and approved by the Constituent Assembly of India, was directed to take effect on 26th January 1950, to commemorate the declaration made in 1930.

On Republic Day, flag hoisting ceremonies and parades by school children are held in different parts of the country. The grandest and most significant of these parades is held at Rajpath in New Delhi, which showcases a multi-hued image of the country’s rich cultural & traditional heritage and their military prowess. The parade is presided over by the President of India. The Prime Minister of India lays a wreath at the Amar Jawan Jyoti at India Gate to pay tribute to the martyrs who have sacrificed their lives for the country. After that there is the 21 gun salute, unfurling of the National Flag and singing of the National Anthem. Next, the Paramvir Chakra, Ashok Chakra and Vir Chakra are presented to military persons, citizens and children for showing courage in the face of adversities.

The Republic Day Parade is concluded with a fly-past by the Indian Air Force Fighter jets over Rajpath, as viewers look on with their hearts filled with pride. The Republic Day celebrations of India have rightly become world famous as one of the greatest displays drawing thousands of eager spectators from all over the country and different parts of the world as well.

This Republic Day, celebrate the feeling of great pride and joy towards our country with your child, using the following tips:

  • Hoist the National Flag in your building’s parking lot or garden and sing the National Anthem.
  • Take your child to watch the Republic Day Parade at Rajpath or watch the LIVE telecast of the parade at home.
  • Make tri-coloured sandwiches or foods for your child, for e.g. use cucumbers, tomatoes, etc for the sandwiches.
  • Dress your child in tri-colour clothes.
  • Explain your child about the significance of this day.
  • Watch patriotic movies with your child and ask her what she liked about the movie.

How to celebrate Makar Sankranti at home?


Makar Sankranti is a harvest festival that is celebrated every year on 14th January, in the month of Magha, as per the Hindu calendar. Makar Sankranti is one of the most auspicious days in the Hindu calendar, as it holds a religious significance for the Hindus. According to the Puranas, on this day, the Sun visits the house of Shani, the Swami of Makar Rashi. Also, this day symbolises the importance of special father-son relationship. It is believed that on this day Lord Vishnu conquered the demons and buried them under the Manadara Parvata, thereby marking the day as the victory of good over evil. Apart from this, this festival holds special mention in the epics of the Mahabharata. The story relates to Bhishma Pitamaha, wherein during a war, Arjuna’s arrows injured Bhishma Pitamaha. However, he chose to wait for the Uttarayan to set in so that he would get salvation and free himself from the cycle of rebirth.

The festival of Makar Sankranti is also given due importance in the Sikh community as the tenth Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Gobind Singh got Moksha (salvation) for fourteen Sikhs. This festival is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm in the states of Karnataka, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. Besides this, Makar Sankranti is also celebrated in other parts of the country and is known by different names viz. Pongal in Tamil Nadu, Bihu in Assam, Bhogi in Andhra Pradesh and Uttarayan in Gujarat.

Traditional Celebrations

The traditional celebrations and rituals associated with Makar Sankranti vary from state to state. Since the festival traditionally coincides with the Sun’s northwards journey into the Uttarayan, when it enters the sign of Makar Rashi (the Capricorn), people in huge number take dips in the holy Ganga River at Haridwar and offer water to the Sun God (Surya). It is believed that by doing this, all sins will be purified and one can attain salvation. Also on this day, people worship Goddess Saraswati who is considered as the Goddess of knowledge. Apart from this, kite flying is a popular tradition on the occasion of Makar Sankranti. This is so because this festival coincides with the International Kite Festival which is held at Ahmedabad, Gujarat on 14th January.


How to celebrate Makar Sankranti at home?

  • Wake-up early in the morning, before sunrise, have bath and dress up in new traditional clothes.
  • Tell your children the significance of celebrating the festival of Makar Sankranti.
  • Teach ‘Gayatri Mantra’ to your children.
  • Worship the rising sun by offering water, flowers while chanting the Gayatri Mantra.
  • Prepare special delicacies such as rice khichadi, til ke laddu, coconut chikki, ganee ki kheer etc.
  • Encourage your children to make bright kites of different colours, sizes and shapes.
  • Involve your children in flying kites.

So, on this auspicious occasion of Makar Sankranti, pray to God for the well-being of one and all.
