New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Thursday paid a solemn tribute to soldiers who have sacrificed their lives for the nation by laying a wreath at the Amar Jawan Jyoti at India Gate.
Prior to the start of the 63rd Republic Day parade showcasing India`s military might and cultural diversity, Manmohan Singh drove to the tomb of the unknown soldier -- marked by a reversed rifle, standing on its barrel and crested by a soldier`s helmet.
After the prime minister laid the floral wreath, the guard commander gave salute and buglers played the "Last Post" -- rendered at military funerals and ceremonies commemorating those who have died in war.

Along with everyone, Manmohan Singh observed a two-minute silence.
