Pomp & Circumstance

As a veteran of many Rose Parades, I can honestly tell you that I’ve never enjoyed a parade as much as I did on Thursday during the Republic Day celebrations in New Delhi. From endless marching bands and military formations to (former-Soviet) military gear to decoration-covered war camels and elephants to state-specific floats with dancers and blaring music, it was an event that defined

pag·eant·ry
n., pl. -ries.

  1. Pageants and their presentation.
    1. Grand display; pomp.
    2. Empty show; flashy display.

It was delightful. See it for yourself at: http://republicday.nic.in/
