Beating Retreat Ceremony held in New Delhi

New Delhi, Jan 29 (ANI): New tunes composed by Indian musicians featured prominently at the 'Beating Retreat' ceremony on Thursday, which marks the culmination of the four-day-long Republic Day celebrations. Fifteen military bands and 18 pipes and drums bands from regimental centres and battalions participated in the ceremony. Besides, Indian Navy and Indian Air Force, too, had a band each performing at the event. Meanwhile, Delhi Metro services have been curtailed at two stations today as part of security arrangements for the 'Beating Retreat' ceremony. Beating Retreat owes its origins to an ancient custom when warring armies would call a halt at sundown, case colours and standards and lower flags to attend to the wounded, eat and rest. The present ceremony dates to the early 1950s when Major Roberts of the Indian Army developed this unique display by the massed bands. Jan 29, 2015

Malaysia declares disappearance of Flight MH370 an accident

Malaysia, Jan 29 (ANI): Malaysia declared on Thursday (January 29) that all passengers on board the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 had lost their lives in an accident, opening the way for the compensation process to begin. International investigators are looking into why the Boeing jet veered thousands of miles off course from its scheduled route before eventually plunging into the Indian Ocean. The Beijing-bound Boeing 777 aircraft disappeared on March 8 last year with its 239 passengers and crew shortly after taking off from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. Months of searches have failed to turn up any trace. Malaysia declares the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 an accident that killed all 239 people on board, saying it will now start the compensation process. Jan 29, 2015
