The status of a ‘republic ‘is given to a state which has its supreme power given to the people of the state and those representatives who get elected by the same people. The state which is run by an elected member/president and not by a monarch is given the status of a republic.

Republic day history:
Nearly after 2 centuries of subjugation by the British, India gained freedom in the year 1947, August 15. In 1950, January 26th became the day when the Indian constitution was adopted officially even though the declaration of freedom from the British was made on 1930, January 26th. It’s because of the adoption of the Indian constitution why we celebrate republic day every year.
The Indian constitution was actually formed by 26th November 1949 and after a waiting time of nearly 2 months, January 26th was decided to be celebrated as the Republic Day.
