India Celebrating 65th Republic Day

Today India is going to celebrate her 65th Republic Day.

It is believed that Republican system of governance was existed in India from very old days itself. Mahajanapadas existed in between 6th and 3rd century BC is believed to have republican style of governance. For e.g. Virjis, confederacy of eight or nine clans which includes powerful Licchhavis, followed some kind of republican administrative system. It is believed that 7707 Licchhavi members meet every year to elect one of their member as their ruler, and a council of 9 to assist them (it is another matter that only a small portion of Licchhavis were allowed to vote).

Wish that India be able to overcome all the challenges and achieve top spot among the nations.

Happy R-Day to all of my readers. Jai Hind.
