On the 26th of JAN when INDIA celebrated its 61st Republic Day I had written a post titled “ Phir mile sur – Mile Bollywood hamara ??” where I was (atleast sounded to be) critical of the fact that too much of Bollywood was a part of the Video and that not much screen space was given to the sportsmen and the defense forces. Today I was pleasantly surprised to see a video thanks to my friend Kiran.
Today INDIA celebrated its 61st Republic Day and like every other republic day I was glued to DD, the only time most people will switch to the national channel as they don’t have any other option. The capital was enveloped in thick fog but that didn’t deter the spirit of the delhities who had turned out in huge numbers to witness the parade. The military and paramilitary contingents marched perfectly which was followed up by the 21 tableaux, representing 12 states as well as Central Ministries and Departments showcasing the nation’s culture, art forms, Scientific and technological progress and rich resources.
