Holidays like Republic Day are a pretty good indicator of who serves our country and why we should be grateful to them. Policemen, military, doctors, railways, sanitation and so many more. The people who work on this holiday are who we should dedicate it to. 


Abhishek Bachchan

Jai Hind. Happy Republic Day to all.
