India will witness a different 74th Independence Day Celebration on 15th August this year, as the country settles into a new normal due to the coronavirus.
With two days left for the flag hoisting ceremony by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Red Fort in Delhi, a full dress rehearsal took place today. Soldiers from the three divisions of the Indian Armed Forces – the Army, the Navy and the Airforce were seen practicing and marching, wearing their face masks and maintaining social distancing. The dry runs were conducted as per schedule, amidst monsoon showers in the capital city.
Preparations have been made with extra precautions this year due to the raging pandemic. It is unlikely for school children to be present at the event, over concerns of their safety. At the venue, gaps will be maintained between the seating of the guests and medical check-ups will be conducted for all police personnel and security forces positioned at the venue.
