India is all geared up to start 2021 with the grand celebration of 72nd Republic Day on Tuesday, January 26. India is still recovering from nearly a year of trauma due to COVID-19 pandemic, which not only hit the country's economy but also claimed hundreds of lives. This year's celebrations will be toned down in view of the pandemic, but that shouldn't hamper the patriotic spirits.
Indians across the country can still watch the parade, which will be live-streamed to your homes on TVs and mobile phones, enjoy patriotic songs, watch films that invoke a sense of patriotism. But the celebrations of Republic Day will be incomplete without wishing your loved ones, friends and family members, on the occasion.
