When a few days before, you come across people selling tricolour flags all around. When patriotic tunes waft in the air out of the blues and instead of your daily dose of politics, those steaming hot tea cans bring along the talks and legends of India's past. Know that our Republic Day is around the corner. India's Republic Day is one of those occasions when the entire country gets enveloped in a communal pride towards our democratic and constitutional achievements. Right from the morning parade, starting with a commemoration of the brave warriors who laid their lives for the country at the eternal flame of honour, the Amar Jawan Jyoti, followed by a glamorous and extravagant display of our defensive and offensive strength, republic day embarks the nation towards another year of constitutional harmony.

Upon the first sight, it might seem to be just another holiday for many, but when you dig in deeper, it makes for a reason they hold their head up high, for we are born in a great nation like India and we are not just a nation but an outcome of a greater ideology that makes the entire world a better place to be.

For reasons more than many, thousands and scores of people from all walks of life and various corners of the country congregate to the mesmerizing republic day events being held in the capital of India. No wonder, just about everything and anything makes you sing out loud the songs of this land and hail the trails of the legends in our past.

Beating The Retreat Ceremony - The Warriors' Departure

After the Republic Day fever passes by, we all get back to being the same mundane velocity of events and life. But before you finally make way back to your routine, witness the retreating ceremony of our armed forces that's equally glorious and gaze worthy. An event that's less talked about and shadows away in the glamour of republic day parade, the beating retreat is one thing that completes the experience of watching a parade. The soldiers ceremonially go back to their abodes after they've paid their respects to the fallen brothers and the commanders who lead. Not witnessing this is like watching a parade and not getting to the end of exhibits. But do not make this mistake this once and make way for a complete republic day experience.
