Republic_Day_Rehearsal

After August 15, 1947 (when India earned its freedom from British Empire), January 26, 1950 remains the most important in the history of India and its people; since this was the day when India enacted its Constitution and done away with British rule completely.
In 2014, India celebrated its 65th Republic Day across the nation as President Pranab Mukherjee greeted the public on the occasion. The day was celebrated in India’s capital, New Delhi, where a ceremony was held near India Gate at Rajpath as India’s first citizen received guard of honour from Indian Armed forces in the company of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who was the chief guest this year.
The President honoured personnels from armed forces who laid down their lines in the line of duty bestowing upon gallantry awards on them posthumously, in addition to that children who performed acts of bravery were also rewarded. The event also saw India flaunting its military might and cultural fervour.
While the Indian Army put on display its arms and artillery, on the other hand, India’s prominent states, union territories and important government ministries showcased their regional pavilions. Going by the “unity in diversity”message the largest democracy in the world stands for India put on display its colours and hues in the heart of the nation for over a billion people to see.

The facial expressions of mice: The face of a mouse reveals its emotions -- ScienceDaily : Researchers have described different emotional facial expressions for mice. Similar to humans, the face of a mouse looks completely different when it tastes something sweet or bitter, or when it becomes anxious. With this new possibility to render the emotions of mice measurable, neurobiologists can now investigate the basic mechanisms of how emotions are generated and processed in the brain.
