After a disastrous 2020 that brought roughly the worst year that there was. 2021 brought in it wakes a new day and a beautiful year ahead. Today is the 26th of January, India stepped into it’s 72nd Republic day. It has been 72 long years since the Constitution of India came into effect for the first time.
Regarding today’s significance, yoga connoisseur and Bollywood actress took to the social media platform to wish all her friends, family and her long loving extended fanbase a very happy republic day. But, things did not work out as planned as the actress got confused between ‘ganatantra’ (republic) with ‘swatantra’ (freedom) and ended up using the wrong word.
Even though the actress was quick to make the necessary change, the trolls and meme lords always picked up on the scent and started spreading it out.
