India celebrated its 69th Republic Day on Friday (January 26) with more than usual pomp and splendour. The occasion that marks India’s existence as a democratic republic for almost seven decades is indeed prideworthy. But do Indians realise the sheer weight of this particular day? Let us take a look at how Indians celebrated Republic Day in their own way, on social media.
Big celebrations and Big B. Well, Amitabh Bachchan celebrated Republic Day with - no prizes for guessing - his own photos, as always.
T 2594 - Watching Republic Day Parade in Delhi .. what a moment of pride .. tears welling up as the Army marches past .. memories of the early years in Delhi, when we would clamour for seats to watch the parade ! JAI HIND !!🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/DH7WbbzJH1— Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) January 26, 2018
As so did Ranveer Singh, Ravi Kisan and India’s “DJ Waale Babu”, Badshah.
A very happy republic day. Jai hind. pic.twitter.com/9o9MFjw92g— BADSHAH (@Its_Badshah) January 26, 2018
And the Dutch EDM artist Hardwell, for some reason.
Happy Republic Day! 🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/pLapXUS2c4— Hardwell (@HARDWELL) January 26, 2018
And Salman Khan just decided to wish everyone with a title of his own patriotic cinema.
Celebrities don’t change, so why should ordinary people?
As is with the news cycle, the Rajput Karni Sena had a special place, at least in everyone’s hearts:
Republic Day tableau idea: Karni Sena members sitting in a big open vehicle, and school kids watching the parade get to throw stones.— St_Hill (@St_Hill) January 25, 2018
One tableau for the R Day parade should just be a burning bus with people trashing stuff all around it.— That Goan Boy (@schmmuck) January 25, 2018
So looking forward to the Republic Day Parade representing the awesome facets of India. Most excited about the Karni Sena float!— Vaibhav Vishal (@ofnosurnamefame) January 26, 2018
Hope the Government will direct the Karni Sena to have their own float in Republic Day.. India should show its "cultural & militant strength" 😛 https://t.co/feGXyQZlY0— James Wilson (@jamewils) January 25, 2018
Speaking of tableaus and parades, who doesn’t love the bike stunts!

But there were a few, who brought with them some reality checks.
What does India’s #republicday mean for #Kashmir:Once January starts, family panics when their children are out. Cos it’s ‘shatwuh January’.When it happens: There’s curfew, Internet is banned and some elders stare at the grand military parade on TV. And say ‘Toati ni kiheen’.— Faysal M (@_Faysal) January 26, 2018

#RepublicDay cartoons that not just define d situation of Modis #NewIndia but also make our heads hang in Shame that we are ruled by a fascist dispensation that believes in Dictatorship,state sponsored Mobocracy and does every bit to rob d citizens of their constitutional rights pic.twitter.com/9QfggIAuqf— Vinay Kumar Dokania (@vinaydokania) January 26, 2018
It'll be funny to see India showcasing their power on Republic Day to world while failing to protect school kids from Karni Sena.— EngiNerd. (@mainbhiengineer) January 24, 2018
