Happy Republic Day

I used to hate going to school on Republic Day, not that I wanted to sleep, but because I wanted to see India display it’s military might. I used to love the tanks, missiles, the smart army officers, their coordination and yes the sight of national flag flying high and proud!

I couldn’t catch up on the telecast this year (sad) .. But thanks to the Internet I got to see a few pictures from this year’s celebration.

  1. Wow, that’s an impressive military display.
    I think Australia might only have a couple of tanks, so a parade such as this would be over in less than a minute if we were to have one.
    Both our countries celebrate our national days on Jan 26 but in quite different ways.
    I long for the day when we have our own national flag without the symbol of Britain in the top left hand corner.
    India’s flag is instantly recognised all over the world.
    Ours looks like New Zealand’s.

  2. Hey Ben thanks for dropping by.. abt Aussie republic day coinciding with India’s.. I knew abt that thanks to the the special quiz we used to have in our school on the day.. the question came every year!

    Thanks abt the flag and abt military.. your country doesn’t need such a huge army. After all u r an island continent which has no threat from it’s neighbours unlike us! Every country around us wants a piece of our land! sigh!
