As adults, we remember those good old days when we would be so excited for the festivities during Republic Day. There is no doubt that we love these two days more than any other festival. On Independence Day and Republic Day, we wear tricolour clothing and wave the Indian flag proudly. To honor those who sacrificed their lives for this freedom, we sing patriotic songs and remember them ceremoniously. Actress Nikita Rawal is taking a deeper look into her memories of celebrating the day as a student and what it means to her now.
“I remember participating in the flag hoisting in my building with all the neighbors on Republic Day in school. Afterwards, all my building friends sang the same timeless patriotic songs. Vande Mataram resonated throughout the building, making the entire building feel at peace. “
A message for all she says: “I hope we can be kind to one another this Republic Day and take care of the country. A nation is what it is because of its citizens.”
