Outfit of the Day - Republic Day

On January 26 every year, India celebrates the Republic Day. Republic Day honors the date on which the Constitution of India came into force. There is a marvelous parade  in New Delhi (the capital of India) before the President on this day. Its a national holiday and the entire country celebrates by hoisting the Indian flag.

There were celebrations in many locations in my neighbourhood. Along with Independence day, this day brings out the patriotism in the whole country. Its a lovely feeling to see the solidarity of the people on this day :-)

Many people dress up in the colours of the Indian flag on Republic Day - saffron which indicates strength and courage, white which indicates peace and truth and green which indicates fertility, growth and auspiciousness. And in the centre is the blue Ashoka Chakra which has 24 spokes and represents the wheel of dharma (duty).

I also decided to dress up in the flag colours - wearing a kurta which has the 3 colours (saffron, white and green) and a blue churidar. I went totally traditional with a saffron bindi and small jhumkis in my ears. 

So do you like my outfit?
Wishing a Happy Republic Day to all Indians :-)
