26-01-2017, 1100 hours, Kaza, Spiti, Himachal Pradesh, India:
Today being our nation’s 68th Republic Day, we have come to the Government Senior Secondary School at Kaza, where the tricolour will be hoisted and then further celebrations will follow. The Chief Guest for the day is the ADM of Spiti, Dr. Vikram Singh Negi. Though there is around 2 feet of snow outside, it is good to see that many students, teachers and locals are present for occasion. The students from the nearby villages have not been able to come as the snow is still continuing to fall, although at a comparatively slower pace now.
