Republic Day celebrations take me down the memory lane when we would take part in dancing and singing competitions and other activities at school."

"Republic Day has always been special for me. 26th January brings back a lot of memories, especially when I was in school, we would take part in the celebrations and see the flag hoisting. I was always busy performing, be it dance or a small skit. Also when the function ended, we would be very excited to get chocolates from school teachers. I wish all my fans a very Happy Republic Day, stay blessed and work towards making a better India every day."

"I have many fond memories of celebrating Republic Day in school as a kid. All students would participate in the celebrations where we hoisted the flag and sang patriotic songs. I used to like being part of flag hoisting ceremonies, be it at school or in our society. Prominent personalities from defence background would come as Chief Guests in school. I wish everyone a very Happy Republic Day."
Avinash Mukherjee aka Ranbir in Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyaar
"I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Republic Day. I truly consider myself fortunate to be a citizen of this country. I remember celebrating Republic Day in school where we all would be part of the flag hoisting ceremony which was attended by Government dignitaries. Singing the national anthem would always give me a sense of pride. This Republic Day, I would like to urge all my fans to help make this country a greater one, keep it clean and respect women."
Sehban Azim aka Zaki in Humsafars
"In Delhi, Republic Day is celebrated in a big way. I remember my father taking me for the parade at India Gate, it is one experience I will never forget. As a kid, all of us used to eagerly wait to watch the speech and parade on television. I do feel that patriotism is missing in today's youth. I feel we all need to not only think about ourselves but also about the growth and development of the entire nation. Happy Republic Day to all."
