Cultural performances will be presented by 479 artistes chosen through the nationwide “Vande Bharatam” dance competition. This is the second time that the dancers have been selected through a nationwide competition.
The grand finale will be the eagerly-awaited flypast, where aircraft from three forces will participate. The country’s new Rafale fighter aircraft will perform the concluding Vertical Charlie manoeuvre. Though Rafale had been part of the parade in the last two years, this is the first time a quarter of the fleet – nine aircraft – will participate in the flypast.
