    ... one of the most important days in indian history

    i got to be a part of the flurry of activity around the city... the rehearsals for the big big parade started on location about a week or two back... i attended the run thru's at 6 am on 2 days...
    its 2.30 am now... i think people start lining up at 5 am at the 'india gate' for the parade... i am not going(viewing on tv is better:greenpbl: )... it is pretty spectacular!

    here goes a few pics... let me remind you that the real thing is nothing compared to the pics... they have beautifully decorated floats from each state... traditional dances and music... a phenomenal air show by the airforce... and a whole lot of patriotism....

    sorry for so many images!

    The first one....simple but powerful.

    The uniforms look so tight...in the 3rd photo, it looks as though all the heads are too big and have been photo-shopped on.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Absolutely excellent. I agree with the above that #3 really sticks out but ALL are exquisite! The colors are amazing and the compositions are perfect! Great work!
