This historic day marks the adoption of the Constitution in 1950, propelling India into the realm of republicanism. The Republic Day Parade, held annually on Kartavya Path, showcases the nation’s military prowess with marching contingents from all three armed forces, awe-inspiring displays of military equipment, and exhilarating performances by motorcycle teams. Notably, this year’s celebrations will feature the esteemed presence of the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, as an honored guest.

The significance of Kartavya Path, stretching from Rashtrapati Bhavan to India Gate, lies deeply rooted in India’s struggle for independence. Initially known as Kingsway during the British Raj, this ceremonial boulevard was later renamed Rajpath and has played a pivotal role in witnessing the nation’s journey from colonial rule to a sovereign democratic republic.

In a symbolic gesture of transition, ‘Rajpath’ was officially renamed ‘Kartavya Path’ in September 2022. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during the inauguration as part of the revamped Central Vista Avenue, emphasized the shift from Rajpath’s association with power to Kartavya Path representing public ownership and empowerment. PM Modi declared that the renaming marked the erasure of the symbol of slavery, signifying a transformative moment in India’s history.

The Republic Day Parade 2024 is scheduled to commence at 9:30 am, with the main event starting at 10:00 am. The route covers a distance of over five kilometers, starting from Raisina Hill near Rashtrapati Bhavan, proceeding along Kartavya Path, passing India Gate, and concluding at the iconic Red Fort.

This route encapsulates the essence of India’s historical journey, paying homage to its struggle for freedom and its evolution into a vibrant democratic republic.

As the nation prepares to witness this momentous occasion, the spotlight remains firmly on Kartavya Path, epitomizing the spirit of India’s past, present, and future on its 75th Republic Day celebration.
