India became independent on August 15, 1947. However, by this time, India didn’t have any constitution of its own, rather the laws were majorly based upon the modified colonial Government of India Act 1935. Then, it was on August 29, 1947, a separate resolution was passed for appointing the drafting committee. This committee was responsible for the creation of a permanent constitution of our country. And Dr. B.R. Amedakar was chosen as the chairman under whose guidance India entered a new world of glory and success. So, while Independence day mainly celebrates India’s independence, Republic Day celebrates the implementation of India’s constitution.
