Today Indians all across the world are celebrating Republic Day which is one of the national holidays in India. It is celebrated every year on January 26. This day is of great pride for all Indians as on this day India became a sovereign and republic nation. On this day in 1950, our Indian constitution came into effect. The constitution was adopted in the year 1949. Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar chaired the drafting committee and was the principal architect of the Indian constitution. Babasaheb Ambedkar has been an inspiration to many and his ideals are even followed today. He never tolerated injustice and always fought against social evils like discrimination and untouchability among others.
