The Republic Day Quote

Yipee! It’s our 59th Republic Day. So, this is a good time to understand the true meaning of a republic, isn’t it?

Here is one meaning, given by Franklin P. Adams,

The true republic: men, their rights and nothing more; women, their rights and nothing less.

That is a great quote (though it took me a second reading to understand it completely, the dimwit that I am!).
