A thing one couldn't help noticing is the utter lack of aesthetics sense of the photographers. Take for example the first picture itself. Merely centring the photo, aligning it with the dome of the Rashtrapati Bhavan would have made it look so much more grand & majestic - uninspired, uninspiring photography, content with the assurance of a pension awaiting him the end of his career.

Godspeed

  1. one small thing Mig 29 "fulcrum" is called Baaz and Jaguar is called Shamsher in IAF. Atleast we can remember Indian names while reporting Indian republic day!

  2. ^^^ I agree with this person. You must use the real Indian Forces reporting names for it, not what others call it. Thanks for the pictures.

    Please edit the names if possible.

    Thanks

  3. Thanks for bringing this up. In the past, I've been mentioning their Indian nomenclatures too. With a rush to post it & get on with the weekend, it slipped my attention. Will make it a point to mention them henceforth.
