Inidan Military Parade In France’s Bastille Day Celebrations

14 Jul

July 14th, 2009 is a historical day for India. As France celebrated the Bastille Day, Indian Navy, Army and Airforce troops, 400 in all, marched proudly. The Maratha regiment lead the march as the 90 member band played on with much pride and glee.

Not just that, Indian PM Manmohan Singh was the guest-of-honor. This was France’s way of telling how close India is to them. A memorandum issued from French office read: India has a primary role on the international scene and we support India’s candidacy to become a UN Security Council permanent member.

This is one of the most celebrated days of France and India’s presence here will send out a great signal to the larger world community of India’s growing dominance in all respect – education, military and warfare, entertainment etc.

This is a step in the right direction and one of the achievements for the Cong led UPA government. Lets raise a toast for this date with history.
