Republic Day Parade

I have been a keen watcher of republic day parades since my childhood.

The glamour the parade holds is unsurpassed and makes one feel more patriotic and a  proud Indian.

The parade showcases  nation’s achievements in various fields through its military prowess, a scintillating display of its air power and its rich and diverse cultural heritage.

A gradual change over the years has been shift to indigenous weaponry .

The highlight of this year’s parade was  Agni-V missile.It has a range of 5,000 kilometers (3,100 miles) but it still requires a battery of tests and must clear other bureaucratic hurdles before it can be inducted into India’s arsenal in a few years.

A great quote in president speech this year is worth  quoting

“In thought faith…
In word wisdom…
In deed courage…
In life service…
So may India be great”
