Soak in the spirit of nationalism! Here are things to do in Lucknow on the 75th Republic Day!
Today we’re celebrating the 75th Republic Day, and this year's festivities are extra special. Not only are we marking a significant milestone, but we also get the bonus of a long weekend – pretty cool, right?
Now, Lucknow is buzzing with patriotic energy and exciting activities. So, here's a lineup to make the most of your Republic Day weekend:
Dive into India's vibrant history with a movie marathon this Republic Day!
Explore recent movies and shows delving into India's past to soak in its rich history. Dedicate some time to reflect on the lives that led to this day. Seize this opportunity to delve into captivating narratives and gain insights into the remarkable journey of our nation.
Explore the brilliance of Rocket Boys (Seasons 1 and 2) to unravel the tales of Vikram Sarabhai and Homi Jehangir Bhabha. It's a binge-worthy journey that fits perfectly into this long weekend.
Don't miss the hidden gems like Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey and Article 15. They bring to life untold stories that deserve a spot in your watchlist.
Flying kites on both August 15 and January 26 isn't just a tradition, it's got some historical significance too.
It's not just about having a blast on your day off; it symbolizes more. Those kites soaring in the open skies? They represent freedom and how our constitution paved the way for 'Purn Swaraj' or self-rule, making our nation genuinely self-reliant post-independence.
So, grab the kites from the market and get your fam together for some high-flying fun!
Explore local crafts and handlooms!
If you're into rocking tricolor outfits at work or home during national holidays, it's the right moment to spice up your wardrobe. Opt for a unique twist – explore those clothing shops in your local market to support small business owners. Consider a visit to Khadi Aashrams to champion local crafts and handlooms!
P.S. Don't miss out on the Republic Day Carnival at Hazratganj metro station!
Attend Republic Day events happening in Lucknow
Brace yourselves for the grand Republic Day Parade, featuring an impressive lineup of 23 tableaus, showcasing the nation's glory.
The parade route spans from Charbagh to KD Singh Babu Stadium, weaving through Station Road, Hussainganj, Burlington, Vidhan Sabha, and Hazratganj.
Additionally, don't miss the opportunity to witness the flag hoisting ceremony wherever you are!
Buy flags, Republic Day themed items & support local vendors, responsibly
Buying Republic Day accessories has been a longstanding tradition, and as adults, it now brings a sense of pride and a sweet trip down memory lane to our school days!
However, the unfortunate reality is that after the national holiday, flags and similar items often end up littering the streets. Let's take the initiative to pick up these flags and items from the roads and dispose of them properly, following the guidelines outlined in the Flag Code of India, 2002.
Together, let's ensure the respect and dignity our national symbols deserve.
In the grand scheme of things, our authorities have been on a mission to level up our nation since forever. But overall it's not a one-player game! While they're doing their bit, us responsible citizens need to step up, tune into the awareness, and play our part as the change-makers!
