63 years after it was first celebrated, Republic Day has lost a lot of its meaning. And this is because of all of us, for forgetting what it’s about, and our beloved leaders, for not reminding us, but taking the opportunity to seem falsely patriotic. Here are some funny responses you might hear from different Indians on January 26. After you laugh, take a minute to reflect on how sad it is that such an important milestone has been trivialized, and resolve to make a difference.
1. Typical Indian 1: Why is Republic Day on Saturday this year? And next year it’ll be on Sunday!*#%%&^@#!!$$!
2. Policeman: Republic Day is a day on which I get a lot of overtime pay, because terrorists are looking to attack
3. Typical Indian 2: Granddad will watch that Republic Day parade all day, and I can't watch Roadies auditions :(
4. Terrorist: It’s just another day to try to kill innocent people, only my commanders say it’s special. That’s weird, even the people I’m trying to kill don’t think it’s special
5. Typical Indian 3: I think Republic Day is something like Independence Day, but kind of different…you know, in a different way
6. Typical Indian 4: I know everything about it. This year, of course, is the 66th Republic Day. Simple math: 2013 - 1947 = 66. Right?
7. Typical Indian 5: It means I have to buy a small flag for 5 bucks from someone at a traffic signal
8. Negative IQ people: It is the day on which I’ll watch 'Race 2' for the second time
9. Rahul Gandhi: I’ll ask my mom what it means, one second
10. MMS: I’ll ask Rahul Gandhi’s mom what it means, Theek Hai?
11. Arnab Goswami's guest: Republic Day is....<Arnab interrupts>

12. Rajinikanth: Republic Day is the day on which the Constitution of India came into force. The first Republic Day was celebrated on Jan 26, 1950. It is one of the three national holidays of India. This year I made Google create a doodle for us...
How scams are connected to Republic Day
R...Rajkumar is bad. We don’t wish to spend too much time on using words to explain how bad it is because it is movies like this which prove that every second of your life is precious. Spending it on R...Rajkumar is a huge mistake. Right from the inexplicable use of fullstops in the title to the insanity that went into writing the dialogues, R...Rajkumar had us thinking about all the bad things that happened in our lives, and how they actually become good when compared to whatever it was that Prabhu Dheva was attempting.
As the economy keeps inflating, so do Bollywood collections. In no time, they’ll each be making the equivalent of the cost of one onion! We predict that the upcoming Dhoom 3 will make 300 crore. Here’s why:
Following elections in Delhi yesterday, exit polls point to the fact that the Congress is going to lose, and pretty badly. What a surprise. Not. Considering the Congress’ performance over the past few months, we’re sure pretty much ANYONE could have beaten them. Here are a few examples:

This week, we are gearing up to watch Prabhu Dheva’s next outing on the silver screen, ‘R…Rajkumar’ (RR).

Here are a few tips for you to make sure you’re well-prepared for the film:

Bullett Raja is authentic, fun, sometimes funny, violent. Yes, it has its flaws, but which movie doesn't? We found it to be a good addition to its genre, and well worth a light weekend watch. So now, we commemorate those instances when it was unintentionally funny with our LOL-scar awards:
