Republic Day Parade:
This year, the main theme of the Parade will be women’s empowerment. A special feature will be an all-women marching contingent from the armed forces. The Ministry of Women and Child Development will lead the procession of floats with a tableaux themed around “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao”, which is a key scheme of the Ministry aimed at addressing female foeticide.
US President Obama will be attending the Republic Day Parade this year, and for the first time ever it will be telecast internationally
