Buildings across the country are lit up ahead of Republic Day celebrations.
On the eve of Republic Day 2022, government buildings across the nation were illuminated in tricolour. Buildings at Vijay Chowk in New Delhi were lit up. Not only this, 1,000 drones made different formations as a part of a rehearsal for the Beating Retreat ceremony. For the uninitiated, the Beating the Retreat Ceremony will take place on January 29. Meanwhile, the city of Jaipur was also decorated with lights ahead of the 73rd Republic Day.
Last Friday, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said that about 1,000 drones will light up the sky for 10 minutes at the 'Beating the Retreat Ceremony’, adding that India will be the fourth country to carry out such a show. The drones will showcase the government’s achievements through several creative formations in the sky. After China, Russia, and the UK, India will be the fourth country to hold such a large-scale show with 1,000 drones, Singh said.
