The Sunday Guardian - - Covert -

A glimpse of Varanasi, the his­tor­i­cal city and the Lok Sabha con­stituency of Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi, will be avail­able at the 2018 Repub­lic Day pa­rade when the Ut­tar Pradesh tableau rides down Ra­j­path. The theme of the tableau will be “Subeh Be­naras”, de­pict­ing the morn­ing life in this fas­ci­nat­ing city, which has been go­ing through a mas­sive trans­for­ma­tion and wit­ness­ing de­vel­op­ment on all fronts. The tableau will have mod­els of the fa­mous Kashi Vish­wanath tem­ple, ghats, boats in the Ganga, apart from well­known tea, ka­chori and paan shops.

The front por­tion of the tableau will de­pict the most pop­u­lar of tem­ples, Kashi Vish­wanath, which was built in 1780 by Queen Ahilyabai Holker of In­dore. Mu­si­cal in­stru­ments like shehnai and tabla will be on dis­play. The shehnai will be played by some artists too.
