The main celebration of the day took place at Rajpath, in New Delhi in front of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Ram Nath Kovind, government officials and foreign delegations. At the unfurling of the Tricolour, the military band played the national anthem ‘Jana, Gana, Mana’ with a 21-gun salute fired in the background.
