India celebrated its 68th Republic Day on Thursday, marked by a grand parade in the national capital.
Rajpath was graced by a colourful and vibrant mix of state tableaux, fly-pasts, daring stunts on motorcycles and dance performances by students, showcasing India’s culture, military might and vigour.
As is customary, Twitter users found several elements of the parade hilarious. Here’s a glimpse the most amusing, rib-tickling reactions on the Twitterverse:
