During the celebration of Republic Day, a glimpse of Virat Bharat will be seen on the Rajpath. Equipped with the military might of the new India, this ceremony will get a glimpse of cultural diversity.
This year, in view of the fog, the parade and flypast demonstration will start half an hour late i.e. at 10:30 am on the Rajpath. Every year this program used to start at 10 am. Similarly, no foreign chief guest has been invited in this year 2022 as well, like last time due to Corona epidemic.
- Highlights of the parade
For the first time in this event, a grand fly-past of 75 aircraft of the Indian Air Force will be done, while 480 contestants selected through a competitive process will give cultural performances. 10 large LED screens have been installed at a distance of every 75 meters to show the program to the people sitting far away at the venue.
- viewership decreased
Only adults who have received both doses of the vaccine in the parade, while children aged 15 years and above who have received one dose will be allowed entry. Due to Corona, limiting the number of spectators, only 5 to 8 thousand spectators have been allowed to attend this time. Whereas last year 25 thousand people saw the parade.
- parade route shortened
This time the parade route has also been shortened. Earlier the route used to be 8.3 Km, it has been reduced to 3.3 Km. Despite the 5 km route being short, the tableaux will end only after going to the Red Fort.
- Inviting those who never called
The special thing is that this time in this national function special arrangements have been made for those sections of the society, who usually do not get to see the parade. Certain sections of auto-rickshaw drivers, workers, sanitation workers and front line health workers have been invited to witness the ‘Beating the Retreat’ ceremony along with the Republic Day parade.
- Main attractions on Rajpath
Weapons and equipment used in the Indo-Pakistani wars of 1965 and 1971 will be shown. Similarly, the old armored vehicles and artillery will be a symbol of the wars fought by the Indian Army in the last decades. New things to replace old equipment, weapons and technology will also be displayed.
That is, overall it can be said that this time the parade will be a unique confluence of the celebration of the Republic and the nectar festival of freedom started by the government of PM Narendra Modi.
