    My respect goes to all those in the ranks who spent the time to look as sharp as they do. A parade does not just happen. :)

    I was remembering the last time I participated in a ceremony, which was with a formation at least the size of 3 companies. We were in a column with a 12 man front, and when we marched in practice before the event, at the command of "Column Left" (which you might call Left Wheel) every man would lean into the shoulder of the man to his left, presenting a ridiculous spectacle as the column turned. I though our Sergeant-Major would have apoplexy before we got it right. :-D

    My heartfelt thank you to great sons and daughters who have served and are serving the nation by choosing to join the noble service in Indian Army. I thank the parents of all the Army Jawans who have encouraged them and raised them to serve the nation to defend the freedom for rest of it's citizens. I salute each and every Jawan and promise to keep you in my daily prayer to my last breath on this planet.

    May you always be shielded from the enemy and be victorious in all the battles you are fighting on our borders. May God always protect you from the evil (SATAN) forces.


    Jai Jawan, Jai Hind.

    Yes we have Left or Right wheel, the command being in Hindi, but we don't lean.

    It is just that the outer chaps reduce their steps and the other flank increases and it look rather spectacular.

    Why do you lean into the next man in your army? Even that must be quite fascinating to watch as a spectator!

    Any clip that you can show of the manner you do it in your army?

    Oh, we were doing it absolutely wrong by leaning, that is why the Sergeant-Major wanted to strangle every last one of us, and we were on the parade field until we got it right (in the manner as you describe). I hope nobody was there with a camera!:shocked:

    Actually, now that I jiggled my memory, indeed there is a tendency to lean.

    It is not a regular movement since it does not have the crisp rigidity that other drill movements have.

    The wheeling has a certain languor about it - a sort of fluidity.
