A spectacular display of India’s military might, complete with a grand parade of the armed forces and a majestic flypast by fighter jets of the Air Force, marked the 70th Republic Day celebrations at Delhi’s Rajpath today. More than 20 tableaux of the states and central government and colourful cultural performances by children represented the country’s soft power. Among the various VIPs and foreign dignitaries who attended the event was chief guest Cyril Ramaphosa, the president of South Africa. The city has been under a security blanket since the arrest of two suspected Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists on Thursday – 25,000 policemen have been deployed. (Video courtesy: DD National)
