Nek Chand's Rock Garden to be featured in Republic Day Parade

Nek Chand's Rock Garden has been selected to feature in India's 65th Republic Day parade in New Delhi on 26th January 2014, The Times of India reports.

A motorised tableau representing the Rock Garden will include structures made from recycled materials, a miniature waterfall, murals, and five people acting as visitors. The drive-by will be accompanied by specially composed music.

The President of India will be attending The New Delhi parade, and there will be a range of moving tableaux highlighting cultural and social achievements across the nation. A spectacular air force fly-by will conclude the parade.

Nek Chand is reported to be proud that his work has been selected for the national celebrations. The Rock Garden is an example of sheer innovation, creativity and a non-communal appeal of which all Indians can be proud.
