During the parade, Delhi's main promenade came alive showcasing India's latest initiatives and achievements along with its rich diverse social and cultural heritage, as the enthusiastic crowd, holding tri-colour balloons, clapped loudly and cheered to mark the day India adopted its Constitution 68 years ago.

Security forces have been deployed in numbers, to keep a check on the situations.

The day began with President Ram Nath Kovind unfurling the Indian flag at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and Prime Minister Narendra Modi paying tributes to the fallen soldiers at the Amar Jawan Jyoti near India Gate.

New Delhi's push to expand economic ties with southeast Asia still trail those of China, whose trade with ASEAN was more than six times greater than India's in 2016-17 at $470 million.

Flags of the 10-member Association of South-East Asian Nations (Asean) fluttered at the 90-minute parade through the tree-lined roads of central Delhi.

The ASEAN, founded in 1967, comprises Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos and Brunei. This might be a way to illustrate a new addition to the Indian Republic Day 2018 parade-113 women from the Border Security Force will perform adventurous stunts on motorcycles along the Rajpath during the parade! The marching contingents aside, several aircraft, military vehicles, and weapons are displayed during the parade. Curbing black money has been among the priorities of the government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said on domestic as well as worldwide platforms that steps like demonetisation and linking bank accounts with Aadhaar is targeted at removing black money. Income Tax Department has sent a tableau of special anti-black money drive launched post-demonetisation, which is also on the list of many firsts.

The Navy also showcased its Indigenous Aircraft Carrier (IAC) Vikrant, which will be commissioned in 2020, while the Defence Development and Research Organisation exhibited the "Nirbhay" missile and the Ashwini radar system.

The colours of the national flag are distinct in the Google Doodle-it's made up largely of various shades of blue, and subtle strokes of green and saffron.

The national capital has been brought under a ground-to-air security cover in view of the Republic Day celebrations.

Modi and President Kovind also waved to the crowd after the conclusion of the ceremony and were greeted with loud cheers.
