I slept through most of Republic Day, which I think has been a particular highlight of the day for me.
I responded to several messages that wished me on Republic Day, but as usual, was struck by whether or not our country is truly a “Republic”. I mean this seriously, and not in terms of having a news channel named after the ideology.
But, what does a Republic mean? Are we there? Were we there?
I’ve read a little, and I’m not quite sure. I hope the next one year changes that for me.
