Spirit of the Indians did not get dampen due to rain and gloomy sky on the republic day morning. Thousands of people gathered to watch the parade of republic day and especially to watch US President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and a number of American delegates who were also present to watch the Republic Day parade in New Delhi. It was the 66th Republic Day occasion in which India have focused its military strength, economic development, unity in cultural diversity.
Barack Obama was the first ever US President to attend the Indian national event, and this invitation was considered as one of the greatest honours India has shown to foreign dignitaries. The President of India Mr. Pranab Mukherjee played his role traditionally with maintaining protocol.
A sequence of marches was displayed followed by displays of military strength, female group, camel troop including various tableaus from various states of India. Finally there were some shows on motorcycles by Border Security Force of India. The BSF showcased it as “Dare Devils” featured astonishing balance, concentration, flexibility and strengths. Even the US President liked their show by showing his thumbs-up.
A 21-gun salute was given to US President Barack Obama at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. He examined a Guard of Honour which was led by a woman Wing Commander Pooja Thakur of Indian Air Force. After that, he shaked hands with President Mr. Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and several other ministers.
Earlier on Sunday, India and the US arrived at an achievement on the obstructed civil nuclear agreement by conceding to business collaboration and chose to take guard participation to another level including development of domestic defence industry and propelled innovations. President Barack Obama portrayed it as a “breakthrough”.
The deal on nuclear cooperation and different regions was settled between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Obama after discussions of more than 3 hours at the delegation level and one-on-one visit. A warm personal chemistry between the two leaders was observed at a casual tete-a-tete on the lawns of Hyderabad House which Obama mentioned(like Modi) as “chai pe charcha”.
