Bharat Parv Military Band

The Indian Military has adopted some British traditions. This is not surprising, as 1,750,000 soldiers of the Indian Army fought for the British in World War One, and 2,500,000 in World War Two.

The uniforms, the tartans and the bagpipes look splendid.  Look at the golden rhinoceros on the regimental banner and the faux leopardskin print of the drummer’s tunic. No one wearing kilts, however. I am not sure if the groups below are military. The peacock-feathered turbans are impressive. I like the man with in white with a red sash and cool shades squatting in front of his colleagues. To the right you can see a Delhi Policeman smartly dressed in his khakis and beret.
