On Wednesday, January 26, 2022, Google will honour India's 73rd Republic Day with a spectacular doodle featuring elements from the legendary Republic Day Parade at the Rajpath.
The Google doodle honours the day, 73 years ago, when the Indian Structure went into effect, transforming India into an independent republic. India's Constitution was formally enacted on January 26, 1950, after it was adopted on November 26, 1949.
The Google doodle features elements from the parade, including an elephant, a horse, a dog, and a camel; a pink tabla; the parade path; a saxophone as part of the long-running camel-mounted band; doves; and the national flag's tricolours, from left to right.
The Republic Day celebrations, which began on January 23, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's birthday, would extend a week. On January 30th, Martyrs' Day, the festivities will come to a close.
The beautiful Rajpath will host the Republic Day Parade 2022, which will exhibit India's military might and cultural diversity. As part of the 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav,' numerous unique projects have been included to commemorate India's 75th year of independence.
The Republic Day Parade will feature 21 tableaus this year, with 12 representing different states and Union Territories and 9 representing other ministries.
"Several firsts planned during the main parade include the launch of `Shaheedon Ko Shat Shat Naman` programme by National Cadet Corps, a grand flypast by 75 aircraft/helicopters of the Indian Air Force, cultural performances by 480 dancers, display of ten scrolls each of 75 metres prepared during the `Kala Kumbh` event," said the Defence Ministry in an official statement.
The 'Beating the Retreat' ceremony will also feature a drone show including 1,000 indigenously manufactured drones, as well as projection mapping, according to the Ministry. The National Flag will be unfurled, followed by the National Anthem and a thunderous 21-gun salute, as is customary.
The parade will begin with a salute from President Ram Nath Kovind. Parade Commander Lieutenant General Vijay Kumar Mishra, Ati Vishisth Seva Medal, a second-generation Army officer, will lead the parade. The Parade Second-in-Command will be Major General Alok Kacker, Chief of Staff, Delhi Area.
The Rajput Regiment, the Assam Regiment, the Jammu & Kashmir Light Regiment, the Sikh Light Regiment, the Army Ordnance Corps, and the Parachute Regiment are among the six marching contingents of the Indian Army that will take part in the parade.
The Madras Regimental Centre, the Kumoun Regimental Centre, the Maratha Light Regimental Centre, the Jammu & Kashmir Light Regimental Centre, the Army Medical Corps Centre and School, the 14 Gorkha Training Centre, the Army Supply Corps Centre and College, the Bihar Regimental Centre, and the Army Ordnance Corps Centre will all march past the saluting dais.
