    On this day of the year 1950 India adopted it's own constitution and became the world's largest democracy. India got independance on 15th of August 1947 but was still governed by "The Government of India Act of 1935" which granted autonomy to the then British colony and still had King George the VI as head of state. India still have lots of problems but is now one of te BRIC countries and is still changing fast. So happy anniversary and "You've come a long way baby!". :D
