People defy chilling cold and fog to witness Republic Day parade at Rajpath. India displays its military might in the presence of French President Francois Hollande without the most respected and awarded Sikh regiment. The float from the state of Punjab was also missing from the parade and not one Sikh led any of the contingents in the Parade. The Sikhs were severely absent from the biggest national event of the country.
