As India celebrates its 73rd Republic Day today, Priya Ahuja Rajda joins mid-day.com for an exclusive chat.
What are your thoughts and memories about Republic Day?
I remember as a kid we used to go to school to hoist the flag and I used to get very excited because that day our school used to give us treat boxes. I was in a central government school so I grew up with a lot of army kids and being with them gives you a different feeling on such crucial days. I have fond memories of performing with other classmates at the Republic Day Parade at India Gate.

To lay down certain limits for citizens and the government regarding their fundamental rights. This gives rise to the idea of a representative democracy.
