Republic Day Parade

Hmmmm..... another Republic Day. Well, just what have we achieved in the last one year that's passed here in India?

Higher prices, fewer jobs, inflation, more terrorist attacks - boy, we're having a good time aren't we?

Oh well, there's the Republic Day Parade tomorrow. I never miss this one, atleast for the cool military tech and the Su-30MKIs that always make an appearance.

For those who didn't know, this time around the chief guest for the republic day will be President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhsthan. And our Defence Minister A K Antony will stand in for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who is undergoing a bypass surgery, at the Republic Day function, says the Defence Ministry.

And here's the link to the webcast of the whole parade. Never knew it existed, did you? That's the link. And the programme starts at 9.25am Indian Standard Time (no, I don't mean that we'll be starting late). That's 3.55am GMT.
Don't miss it.
