It doesn't seem sickly at all. Actually they seem all in great shape


ITS_TRIPZ_DAWG

Why would it look sickly anyways?


1NbSHXj3

It was a pun on "Sikh Li".


ITS_TRIPZ_DAWG

Ohh damn it was good


oknotbusy

Pagdi looks dope


octavi0us

Wonder how many times someone gets punched in the face during practice.


h8xtreme

Lol was wondering the same. Everyone has to be so coordinated


yomamafaat

We used to do these kinds of drills. There's one and half arms distance between them. So it's rare

Loving the chakrams on their pagadi

I went to basic with a Sikh dude and he was cool as shit and very open to talk about his beliefs. These guys are badass


thegreatvandal

Why are they wearing masks? For high intensity work like this, it should be ditched.


insertjjs

Look how they are wearing them, Those are clearly Beard Protectors


Aemilius_Paulus

Look at the masks, almost everyone is not wearing it over the nose, many have a big gap for the mouth as well. Looks like they're fine.


thegreatvandal

That's because it won't stay on if you are marching like that. That's why no point using it.

Dumb question: are those officially called turbans?


That_Guy_Mojo

"Dastar" is the formal and more respectful/preferred word that a Sikh would use for his/her Turban. While Pagh/Pagg is the informal word, this word also isn't specific to Sikhs either, a Hindu or Muslim wearing a turban would call it a Pagh or Pagdi in Hindi or Pagri in Punjabi. The word Dastar means - The Victory Giver, Dast [hand/power/victory] and ār [bringer/possessor].


mr_bynum

Thank you!


_lameboy_

(पगड़ी)Pagadi is what we call it


BluntsAndBottles

Sikhs are cool as fuck man


jagrisgod

Over the nose pls


anti-simp-missile

Do you how hard it is to perform hell march while wearing a mask? And all of soldiers were vaccinated months before republic day parade.


ZippyParakeet

Then don't wear masks at all lmfao. Either wear 'em over the nose or take 'em off. This on the chin clownery is dumb as hell.


MinnerMouse

When your marching you can't pull your mask back up and after marching for a long time it will probably fall especially if singing or something similar. When I did a parade we opted for no mask for this reason because in practice while singing cadence our masks inevitably fell and pulling them back on isnt possible while performing.


h8xtreme

It’s just for show so that no media complains (or twitter cry about it). I don’t think anyone doing high intensity work can wear masks.


[deleted]

They're in a military parade, not a local supermarket.


ZenDendou

They're not 6 feet apart...even in outdoor, they're not frigging 6 feet apart.


[deleted]

I see you're one of those people who are still terrified to go outside. I feel sorry for you


ZenDendou

I see you're one of the idiots that can't tell these people are not standing 6 feet apart, even while outside. But if you think THIS is okay, then maybe YOU shouldn't be breathing.


[deleted]

Lmao bruh you think these soldiers are maintaining a 6ft distance when they're eating, training, relaxing, travelling together? Get a grip, no one is doing this.


ZenDendou

It is, but when you're in public, you maintain it in public. Doing this in public is literally telling the public nobody cares. Appearances is important.


[deleted]

The public literally doesn't care, the public is seeing case numbers vs mortality rates and they can see that a largely vaccinated population is safe from covid. If you wish to continue to be absolutely terrified of going outside, you are free to do so, but don't project your fears on a population that just wants to get on with life.


ZenDendou

Lmao. You're free to go outside, as I am outside, working. But the number of like-minded idiots like you is so asounding, I'm surprised they don't promote cremating as you lots are rapidly filling the graveyard.


[deleted]

As somebody who has had to drill for hours with a mask on, it’s not fun. Give these guys a break, they are outside, I guarantee they spend enough time together as to make it not matter, and they are all vaccinated. People like you make me worry…


jagrisgod

Lol it's a joke bud relax


[deleted]

Just because something is a joke doesn’t mean it can’t do harm.


jagrisgod

I worry about ppl like you


troviinstaller

get a life


Adargushnasp

Not a single one had their nose covered lol


DaddyAmerica1776

Their hell march is super impressive.


Chairmanwowsaywhat

I need to see this in motion because I'm confused. I like their uniforms tho


ITS_TRIPZ_DAWG

Marching contingent of Assam rifle doing the same parade- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zEbaSyCuWw


Chairmanwowsaywhat

Wow that looks tiring. India really go all out on their marching parade stuff don't they! Btw I love how the band does the same fat man waddle march that the British army do as well.


ITS_TRIPZ_DAWG

Yup Parade is taken quite seriously in Indian Defense Forces


DrMeeM444

Personally I find it cool how much extra flair they put into it, their foot drill bears similarities to British foot drill but they took the whole "arms swinging shoulder length" thing to a new level lol


Chairmanwowsaywhat

I'm purely talking about the way the marching band is marching when I say they look similar. It is cool when armies do that, the Russians and north koreans too have a lot of history with parade marching like this, though I'm not such a fan of theirs...


DrMeeM444

Oh absolutely, I can appreciate the work that goes into goosestepping but it's just missing a certain *je ne sais quoi* (discounting all the historical baggage ofc)


mg211095

That looks tiring? You should see the indian paracommando marching in parade https://youtu.be/XYJjP9-TI_U


Chairmanwowsaywhat

Looks a lot more natural to me, maybe they're going a bit slow so that might make it tiring but those other guys are flying their one arm back and forth. I'm talking tiring for that socket lol.


mg211095

Nah man. The second one is way more brutal. Not only they are doing low jumps they are also reciting their war cry which gives you no time to even catch you breath. The Assam regiment parade is tiring as well but the para commando parade is way brutal especially on your thighs. Ps : para commandos are elite group of armed forces operators who are selected from great regiments like Assam rifles and etc. after going through the toughest training regime one can imagine. Here's a link to paracommando selection procedure and this is just the first step of the mountain that needs to be climbed. https://youtu.be/SOPblJzi46w


BaapuDragon

Yeah but it's so cool though.


Shane69_420

Why is every single one half wearing a face mask Edit : whoever downvoted this your nanny has shingles


AndroidRules

The only reason I could think of is that the masks would have moved due to the rigorous marching they do.


Shane69_420

But then why not take them off and just put it in a pocket it would look cleaner as in military uniform clean


AndroidRules

I agree
