What is a republic?
A Republic(from Latin res publica Res means king public means publics which means the king is elected by people directly are indirect) is a form of a government in which “supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives”.In republics, the country is considered a “public matter”, not the private property of the rulers. so on this day, (26 Jan)people of India give themselves a Constitution which tries to achieve a definite shape of the aspirations of the people for a sovereign, socialist, secular democratic republic through provisions like the fundamental rights of all citizens.
