Do NOT confuse Indian Republic Day, viz. January 26, with Indian Independence Day, viz. August 15.
After gaining Independence (from Britain) on August 15, 1947, they had to come up with a constitution for the Republic. That constitution was passed on November 26, 1949. It was adopted on January 26, 1950. That is when India became a Republic. Hence Republic Day. January 26, was also the day, in 1930, when the Indian National Congress, the party of Gandhi and Nehru, passed a declaration that they would seek Independence. So it is a very historic day for India.
Come February 4, Sri Lankan Independence Day, Sri Lankans, worldwide, will be bummed IF they don’t get a Google Doodle. Sri Lanka has only had ONE Google Doodle for Independence Day, that in 2013 — and that was BECAUSE I submitted a request to Google. Sri Lankans will be bummed that India gets at least two Doodles a year — of late. But lets face it. India is a much bigger, much more important country and at least 5% of Google (worldwide) must be Indians.
