India's military might and achievements in various fields, its cultural diversity and the government's initiatives for greater self-reliance, were showcased in all their glory at New Delhi's Rajpath on the country's 67th Republic Day on Tuesday, where French President Francois Hollande was the chief guest.

From the colourful Border Security Force regiment to a 123-member French Army contingent, the parade this year too was a spectacular watch.

Here are some stunning pictures of the parade:
