India celebrates its 69th Republic Day today(Jan.26) with a record 10 Heads of States, from ASEAN or the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, watching the grand parade with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Rajpath, the ceremonial road in the heart of Delhi.

They will be seated on a 100-foot stage enclosed by bullet-proof glass, three times bigger than last year, their presence demonstrating India's emphasis on progressing from a 'Look East' to 'Act East' policy.

There is unprecedented security in Delhi with mobile hit teams, anti-aircraft guns and sharpshooters keeping a watch on the eight-km-long parade route from Rajpath to Red Fort.
