Young Indian's

I visited a nearby school to take few photos of Republic Day celebration.  It was amazing to watch little kids perform various drills, do march fast, hoist the National Flag and dance to patriotic songs. It brought back good memories of my school days.  Here are few candid shots for you enjoy.

Following are photos of nursery school kids dancing to a patriotic song.  These kids are too young to know or understand what Republic Day means but their performance and the expression on their face is priceless.
