Tomorrow, on 26 January, India will be celebrating Republic Day.
It’s a national day, which commemorates adoption of India’s constitution on 26 January, 1950, and is celebrated in every village, town, city and state capital of India, besides a grand celebration and a spectacular parade in the national capital, New Delhi.
This year, Republic Day is very special because 10 ASEAN heads of States (nations) are going to be gracing the occasion as the chief guests in New Delhi.
In Austraila, there would be Republic Day celebrations in the High Commission of India in Canberra and Consulate General offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Honorary Consulates in other places will do the same.
In Sydney, my friends and I will be at the Consulate General of India to celebrate Indian Republic Day between 9.30-11am on 26 January, 2018.
Happy Indian Republic Day!
