Chhabbhis Janveri

Today is 26th January. In India, it is Republic Day and there will be a grand parade down Shanti Path in India Gate in New Delhi. Battalions, squadrons and scouts will march down alongside cavalry in classic garb like the Bengal Lancers, marching from Rashtrapathi Bhavan, {the former Viceregal Palace} to the Eternal Flame lit for the unknown soldier. Here are some pix from Flickr:

A a whole bunch from google images. I remember my first 26th January in Bangalore, a friend and I were chased by cops in Cubbon Park, don’t even ask, it was too long ago. Besides, he’s a proper grown up of father of two in LA now and may not appreciate the story 😛
