Republic Day

Republic Day in DelhiIf you are in New Delhi on the 26th of January, make sure that you see the Republic Day procession. This is one of the most colorful and prestigious national festival and the presence of dignitaries like the President of India, the Prime Minister of India, Union Ministers and foreign delegates make the celebrations very dignified. The chief attraction of the republic day ceremony is the full display of India's military might. Thousands of soldiers selected to represent different regiments march down the road from India Gate and the Rashtrapati Bhawan. The President of India receives the salute.

Soldiers smartly attired in their uniform marching to the tune of military bands is a sight to behold. Ruthless military machines like battle tanks and armored corps too are on display. India has progressed technologically and has developed sophisticated missile systems that can hit military installations with pin-point precision. You can also see some of these missiles. Indian Air Force too is very much involved in the parade. You will see some Jaguar Squadron, Sukhoi Squadron, Mig Multi-Role Fighters and Mirage-2000s fly past. Personnel's of the Indian Navy too participate in the function.

After the military march-past, you will see some colorful performances by various school children. Different states are represented by tableaus highlighting the best that the state has to offer. There are also different groups that perform traditional Indian dance forms. Among the many festivals that you will see in Delhi, the Republic Day celebration is truly secular and showcases the best that India has to offer.
