Happy Australia Day and Happy Indian Republic Day!
26th January is a great day for Australians and Indians! For Indian Australians, 26th January is doubly special! We are the only ones who get the opportunity to celebrate two national days this day today!
I will be going to join in the Flag hoisting at the official residence of Consul General of India in Sydney, Mr Arun Goel, followed by taking part in the citizenship ceremony, presided by Lord Mayor of Parramatta, John Chedid. Later in the evening, I will be joining in the NSW Premier’s Australia Day reception. Later in the evening and even during the day, I will be keeping in touch with celebrations including Republic Day Parade in New Delhi.
We ourselves from Indian Australian Association of NSW Inc [INDAUS Inc] will be hosting an Australia Day and Indian Republic Day celebration tomorrow, Sunday, 27th Jan, 6-10.30 PM, at Ryde Civic Hall, Ryde, NSW with 400+ people including politicians, media and multicultural entertainment, and sumptuous food.
Our focus today and in our INDAUS Inc celebration on 27th January will be on fun, food, networking, multicultural entertainment and celebration of our two nation days.
