Beating Retreat Ceremony @ President's House, Delhi, INDIA : 29th January 2011

Last week one of my friend asked me if I would be interested to witness the Beating Retreat ceremony on 29th Jan at President's House in Delhi. I was very happy to hear about another opportunity to click some photographs of one of the biggest ceremonies in India... She arranged the passes for the event and I went their with my camera although none of us were not sure if cameras are allowed or not. After reaching the place we asked one of the policeman if cameras are allowed or not... He said, everything like Mobile and cameras are allowed... At final security check we were refused to take cameras and one of us had to walk through 1 kilometer to keep the camera in car and come back... Here are few photographs we clicked after completion of the ceremony.. Check Out !!!
