India celebrates its 72nd Republic Day today with a shortened programme – scheduled to start at 9 am and conclude after the traditional fly past 11.25 am – because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Apart from a reduced list of events, the parade will also have a shorter route, no chief guest, fewer spectators, no children under 15 in the annual parade, and fewer soldiers in the Army and Navy contingents.
