I have been working on this photo story from the last 4 years. I intend to document the personal stories of the soldiers, their daily routine, the practice, their exercise, their breaks, their synchronized march, every aspect of the parade. Since childhood, I listened to the grandeur of the Republic Day parade on the radio and always dreamt of witnessing the same in person. Due to some unforeseen circumstance, I could not fulfil this dream. However, in the year 2017, I realised that I can see the parade from scratch and that is when this photo story came into existence.
