Tableaus displayed at R-Day parade should be available for public viewing later too
Tableaus presented by different states, ministries and other public authorities at the Republic Day Parade in New Delhi on 26 January are master pieces of art prepared at very high costs after days of hard work by artists and technicians coming from different parts of the country.

Earlier, there was a healthy practice to put these tableaus for display for general public in open ground in front of Red Fort at Delhi, for three days till Beating Retreat on 29th January. But ever since the open ground was developed in a fancy (closed) park, these tableaus are not available for general public viewing after the parade on 26th January is over.

For value-effective utilisation of high cost spent on these tableaus, Union Defence Ministry should park these tableaus at some centrally located place in Delhi, well connected by Metro-service, for public-viewing for about a week or so. Folk-dances can also be arranged at the place by artists coming to Delhi for Republic Day celebrations, where military bands can also perform on some days.
