                                                                            Beating  retreat  ceremony
                                                                        majestic elegant spectacle,at the
                                                                              closing RepublicDay.

                                                              
 
A dejected India team after losing the match



                                   




                       


                                                                                                    

   Cricket loosers retreated
    winners hooting,,jeering and teasing
            vow to take revenge.
