Nothing can be more soul stirring than a Military parade .

As a Naval brat I had seen many a Naval parade and didn’t know how much I missed them till I saw this jaw dropping Beating Retreat and Tattoo on Sunday.

The Western Naval Command is celebrating its Golden Anniversary had three performances of this grand ceremony .

The one we attended was specifically or the public and many school children were invited to watch. I’m sure they were impressed and thrilled with the music, the marching , the drills and the daredevil realistic rescue operations.

Carried out with military precision, my heart stopped when I saw the simulated terrorist attack. Ironically it was at the same place that had seen this awful tragedy 10 years ago.

Seeing these brave men in white, I felt a surge of joy and gratitude that thanks to them our shores are safe.

  1. I would love to see something like this. I’ve seen the United States Blue Angels (flying performance) in action and it shows you the courage and training of those who protect us.

  2. I thought this happens only at the Wagah border. To watch this has been on my wishlist for a long long time. Just seeing these pictures give me goosebumps! I think I’ll cry when I see this in person!

  3. I totally agree. Military parades make me all teary and overwhelmed. Every single time.
    It’s been many years since I have seen a live one, but I do like watching them on TV sometimes.

  4. I have been to the Wagah Border to watch the flag lowering ceremony and I couldn’t believe myself to have become emotional and teary-eyed. Of course, it wasn’t a miracle of I going emotional because it is my basic nature but then it was something else. If I hadn’t experienced that day at Wagah, I would not have been able to understand your sentiments in this post. I do.
