A sea of saffron, white and green covers cities and towns across India on January 26, to mark India’s Republic Day. “Jan Gan Man” and “Jai Hind” are shouted amidst celebratory crowds. It’s India’s republic day and here are 8 easy way to celebrate 68th Republic Day with your friends and community.
1. Involving seniors in flag hoisting
Flag hoisting ceremony plays an intrinsic role in all Republic Day celebrations. Involving senior citizens in the flag hoisting event is a good idea to keep the elderly involved in the Republic Day celebrations.
2. Conduct a sports meet for kids
Community members can organize a sports meet after the flag hoisting ceremony and the singing of the national anthem. Competitive events like athletics and other cultural activities can be part of the sports meet.
3. Organize cultural programs
In order to plan a perfect republic day celebration in one’s apartment community it is a good idea to have state wise cultural events. Such events not only allow people to understand various cultures but also enhance the spirit of community living and unity in diversity.
4. Involve all sections of the society
Remember Republic Day celebration is for everyone and celebrations must reach all sections of society. The best way apartment community members can make this possible is to have room for all helpers and financial poor sections of the society as part of their celebrations.
5. Honour senior citizens
Honouring senior citizens of the society must be a part of all republic day celebrations in any society. The facilitation may include residents who have done their bit for the society over the years or any others who has been working towards a beneficial cause to the society.
6. Organize an informal social community meet
A flag hoisting ceremony, singing of the national anthem, sports and cultural events, awards and facilitations don’t quite round up the Republic day celebrations without having an informal social get together to increase social interaction between members of the society.
7. Change your social media accounts profile picture
Be it Diwali, Christmas or Ramzan many of us prefer to change our profile picture suiting the celebrations. Add a tricolor national flag image as your profile picture on Facebook , Twitter and other social websites.
8. Create and share a patriotic video on social sites

Video and photo sharing are the most performed activity in Social Media in India. I am hopefully sure there must be one Bollywood or national song that evokes your patriotic feeling that is worth a share. If you are creative enough and have a team to enact a social message on this occasion why not act, record and share? Something performed, recorded and shared personally creates more awareness and interaction than sharing an existing video.
