It was on January 26, 1950, that India replaced the Government of India Act with our very own Constitution. We celebrate this day as our Republic Day every year. This year, as India celebrates the 73rd Republic Day, the Indian Navy and the India Post will use their tableaux to weave the threads of a hopeful future. The Indian Navy's tableau will illustrate the 1946 naval uprising that played a colossal role in Indias independence movement. The historic uprising against the British government in India started from their initial flashpoint in Bombay and later went on to involve over 20,000 sailors in 78 ships and shore establishments across the country. Whats more, apart from highlighting the famous uprising, a woman officer will be the torchbearer of the Navys marching contingent at this year's Republic Day parade.Republic Day parade will be led by INAS Lieutenant Commander Aanchal SharmaLieutenant Commander Aanchal Sharma, who is an observer officer posted at the Indian Naval Air Squadron (INAS) 314, will lead the marching contingent.
