Happy Republic Day @Aditi Garden

It was a very happy Republic Day for us. We were expecting just a flag hoisting ceremony. But, it was a surprise package!

What I saw first was him, a small boy walking towards the ground with his father… I didn’t see his face. But, his eagerness was reflected in his Kurtha-Paijama-vest and the Tiranga in his hand…

We were enthusiastic! All because we saw groups of men with their uniforms…

 Yes!! There were dogs too! There were six dogs!

Chief guest came. Flag hoisted… We sang the national anthem…

Then, there was a march past by the men in uniform…

A musical marching show was performed by the men with musical instruments… There was a cultural event filled with Bhangra, Rajastani Puppet Show, Lavni, Tappangucchi dances by the security people of Magarpatta.
