Rashtrapati Bhavan on Republic Day

Rashtrapati Bhavan on Republic Day

The president of India resides in a beautiful 1920 building, which is sequestered from the rest of the world by iron gates that demand obedience. But once a year, on January 26th and 27th, Rasthrapati Bhavan lights up with thousands of twinkling fairy lights whose brilliance reaches out to us, even as we stand exactly where we always were.
