Delhi will have its tableau at R-Day parade this January
Delhiites missed their tableau at Republic Day parades for three consecutive years. No more.
Delhi will have a tableau at the 68th Republic Day parade this January and its theme would be ‘education’. Delhi is among 15 states which will have a tableau during the parade.
Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra said Delhi government’s initiatives such as model school project, parent teachers training programme, skill development centres and mega parent-teacher meetings will be highlighted on the tableau.
The Delhi Tableau will also have a replica of the Jantar Mantar — an equinoctial sundial, consisting a gigantic triangular gnomon with the hypotenuse parallel to the Earth’s axis.
A special song about education is also being prepared. The Department of Arts and Culture and the Sahitya Kala Parishad were tasked to finalise the concept for the tableaux.
