    Regarding the history of the festival, during the transition period from 1947 to 1950, the king George VI was the head of the state. Lord Mountbatten and C. Rajagopalachari served as the governer general of India in this period. The 26th of January was when; the first president of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad was elected. Most of all, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar was the head of the constituent assembly and played a played a major role in the formation of the constitution.

    Celebrations for the Republic day, India

    This occasion being a very important one, a grand parade is held at the capital, New Delhi annually. It takes place from the Raisiana Hill near the Rashtrapati Bhavan (the place of the president), along the Rajpath (path of the leaders), past India gate and on to the historic red fort. The commander in chief of the Indian armed forces that is none other but the president of India, takes the solute. The different regiments of the army, navy and the air force march past in all their finery and official decorations. The parade includes amusement displays on horses by the military men, other vibrant displays that include missiles, tanks, etc; the ceremony is traditionally ended with a flypast by the Indian air force jets. This is the largest scale celebration-taking place in India for the republic day.
    Celebrations on a smaller scale are held in state capitals, where mostly the governer of the state unfurls the national flag. If he is absent for some reason, the Chief Minster takes the initiative. It is a big deal in school where children march past the hoisted tricolor flag, and have a small ceremony of their own. Sweets are distributed amongst the children. Many other places perform the flag hoisting ceremony and pay their respect the Republic day, and their nation, India.

    Many festivals of our country involve bursting of crackers which in turn to air pollution and this affects the health of the elderly people of our society. Many ignore the fact that if one breathes dust and smoke continuously for 12 hours at a stretch, it affects his lungs as it would on smoking. It is simple to achieve clean and purified air through room air purifier that is portable, efficient & effective in cleaning the air and protecting the family.
