It is Republic Day of our country, a day when our constitution came into force 67 years ago. It is a day when we remember the fight that our mothers and fathers put forth to give our country what it has today. It is a day when patriotic songs keep playing at the back of everyone's mind and that is if it is not already being played aloud on loud speakers that apparently wait for this day all year long.
It is pitiful that a lot of us take this day as any other gazetted holiday, waking up late and displaying pseudo and half-hearted patriotism is what puts our nation to shame. But that is just a small part of the humongous picture where there are children, youngsters, and senior citizens who wake up early and sit in front of their T.V. sets feeling proud as a peacock looking at the battalions walk with utmost grace and finesse. This day is most special for the soldiers that protect us day in and day out, who live in the worst of weather conditions just so that we can live comfortably.
Have a look at how our soldiers celebrate the big day on the borders!
The soldiers show a lot of respect even to their counterparts from the opposite country.
The soldiers parade, and as they parade our hearts boast with patriotism and pride.
They leave no opportunity to show their effortless swag.
Their feet and expressions do all the talking.
The attitude and the flame in the soldiers' eyes tell a tale that most fail to comprehend.
Concentrated, controlled, yet calm. It is not easy to be as fierce as a soldier.
For every soldier, the flag is above anything and everything. They do all they can to protect its sovereignty.
Have you ever seen the Republic Day celebration at any of the Indian borders? If not, please do, I'm sure you wouldn't be regret.
