Happy Republic Day

63rd Indian Republic Day, I had participated twice in Marina Republic Day Parade during my College NCC days. Today I was there as a spectator among thousand of people gathered along the road side of world’s second longest beach. Our Marina.

People gathered either side of the road

As usual traffic was blocked from all roads connecting to the main beach road. People and children walking with us to the beach road with their Parade uniforms, national flag made me think of the good olden days.

People with VIP Passes can take the seats along the pavement on the Gandhi status side. General Public can use the pavement on the opposite side, going through a bomb detector gateway.

CAMERAS NOT ALLOWED inside. This is only for a stretch of one Kilometer there the VIPs are seated. So we took the service lane and reached the other side of stage. People from different community, different classes of  society have gathered without any difference sitting on the road side eagerly waiting for the show to begin.
