ONI Bureau:  Though the Odisha tableau has failed to hit the Republic Day parade today, Odisha touched to ‘Tableaux Parade’ as a rear portion of the tableau showcasing ‘Bali Jatra’ has managed to get place at the ASEAN tableaux in the 69th Republic Day parade in New Delhi.

Reportedly, there have two tableaux showcasing India’s historical, cultural and religious bonds with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) nations were among the 23 colourful tableaus that rolled down at the Rajpath.

The rear portion of the tableau showcased the ‘Bali Jatra’, a festival held at the city of Cuttack in Odisha to mark the day when ancient ‘Sadhabas’ would set sail to Bali, Java, Sumatra, Borneo (all in Indonesia), and Sri Lanka for trade and cultural expansion.

Leaders of 10 ASEAN countries joined President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Republic Day celebrations.
