India is celebrating its 69th Republic on January 26 with much fervour. This year was quite special for India as Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited 10 leaders from ASEAN countries as special guests for the celebrations.
It was also a matter of pride for North-east as for the first time ever an all-woman biker contingent of Border Security Force took the centre stage and performed at Rajpath.
The biker contingent consisting of 106 women had riders from three key north-eastern states Manipur, Assam and Meghalaya.
The women bikers in the age-group of 20 to 31 years rode the 26 350-CC Royal Enfield motorcycles and performed the stunts with complete ease.
Sub-Inspector Stanzin Noryang, who hails from Ladakh, led the ‘BSF Daredevil Girls’ gang at the parade. The biker gang showcased their talent and displayed a mix of India’s cultural prowess and military power.
