Is Republic Day of significance to the younger generation of Indians?
Get news updates:What's this?
January 24, 2008

This Saturday, January 26, the nation will celebrate Republic Day -- it will have been 58 years since India became a sovereign state and our Constitution was first implemented.

Unfortunately, today's youth doesn't seem to take much interest in the significance of Republic Day other than to rejoice at the fact that it is a holiday.

The channel is switched when a live broadcast of the President addressing the nation is beamed on television and most youngsters are discussing how best they can take advantage of a bonus day off from work.

Do you believe that young citizens of the nation take pride in their country on Republic Day?

Is the occasion one of national significance to them?

We want your opinion on the subject -- post your experiences and comments on the message board below!
