It is a pity that the public stays away. There is a crowd, but not as much as one would expect. It was really a wonderful opportunity to see & cheer the various units of the police forces, fire brigade, security forces, army, navy and other personnel smartly turned out in their full working kit.
The photographs in this and related blog posts reveal them in all their glory.
Below are snapshots of the 2013 Republic Day parade held at the Shivaji Park grounds in the heart of Mumbai, Maharashtra.
