At present main celebrations of Republic Day and Independence Day are held in the capital of the country. Of course celebrations are held in state capitals and district headquarters also. It may be worth considering whether these most important events could be held in each state capital in turns. Similarly, the important events taking place in state capitals on Republic Day and Independence Day could also be shifted to different district headquarters in turns.
In addition to holding parades and cultural pageants, Republic Days could be marked by launching of grand schemes like laying foundations for large projects, inaugurating new and additional railway lines, laying foundations for new roads or widening of roads, opening scientific and technological research centres, lanching new research projects etc. This will incidentally ensure that atleast a few major projects are launched each year.
Offices, factories etc.could also funcion at least for a few hours for the celebrations and for taking pledges for improving the working, services etc.
The practice of inviting a foreign dignitary to be the Chief Guest for the celebrations could continue. It may also be considered whether prayers by different religious leaders-Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh etc.- for the well being of the people of the country could also be included in the celebrations.
