The visuals, captured by the drone, showed the Dal Lake and its heart-throbbing view from a height capturing the picturesque scene of the ‘Heaven on Earth’. The heart-melting tune of the national anthem played in the background of the video which added a sense of motivation for the change Kashmir is undergoing.

Republic Day was celebrated across Kashmir on Friday with functions held at all district headquarters of the valley amidst tight security arrangements, officials said.

The main function was held at the Srinagar’s Bakshi Stadium here and advisor to Lieutenant Governor Rajesh Rai Bhatnagar was the chief guest and presided over the function.

Braving cold, contingents of the police, CRPF, SSB, NCC and school children took part in the march past where Bhatnagar took the salute.
