Taking place on January 26th 2012, the event marks the date the country became an independent republic.

Celebrations are started with a flag raising ceremony in the morning which is watched by the country’s president.

It is then followed by a parade of the armed forces, with a floats and performances then coming down the Rajpath to represent the culture of each of the vast nation’s states.

Schoolchildren take part in the festivities by dressing up in traditional clothing from each of the regions.

The event is topped off with a flypast by the country’s air force, making a dramatic ending to the exciting event.

Anyone taking flights to Delhi could be impressed with the response of the crowd to the performances, as actor Raja Chaudhary recently said he loves to take to the stage in the city due to the audience’s warm response.
