Sunday Photos: Ready for R Day

Yesterday I went to Marina beach, casually, and come across the arrangements for Republic Day (Jan 26). I actually forget about it even I watched news on the rehearsals related to Republic Day parade on TV. I usually used to visit marina beach, a day ahead to the celebration to check what’s happening around. For the last few years I couldn't make up to the marina beach during that time, and it was nice to be there seeing a bit of the display.  Here I share some photo taken last evening:

PS: I received another lovely handwritten card from our fellow blogger friend Indrani, following Chandra’s greeting. It is so nice to receive cards from friends and it gives a feel that words can’t describe. But it produces a sense that was truly bliss and inspiring to go ahead with a feel of significant. Thank for your support dear Indrani!

Here her beautiful card

Where is the Ghandi's statue? I really salute and admire all his good work & wise thoughts. He is well respected in my country.

Twilight Man - I shot that picture from moving car, so i wasn't comfort or intend to take picture on other side. Yes,Ghandhi is a universal leader and there couldn't be anyone not admire him.

Ah, now I realize I could have gone to the beach yesterday or today to get some interesting glimpses. But nothing to worry - I was able to catch up with the pics in your blog anyway! :)
