26th January has a special relevance for both Indians and Australians.

Where Indians celebrate their Republic Day, the Australians celebrate their Foundation day.  But Indian-Australians have a bit more to celebrate as they celebrate the achievements of both the nations; one where they were born and the other where they migrated and adopted as their home.

An event was organized at the Indian Cultural Centre, Castlereagh Street, Sydney on January 26 , 2017 to celebrate the Indian Republic Day.

To give a patriotic touch, the cultural center was gracefully decorated in hues of saffron, white and green.  The Indian nationals, people of Indian origin and   others attended the festivities in huge numbers.

Consul General of India in Sydney, B. Vanlalvawna unfurled the national flag which was followed by National anthem of India. Thereafter, the Consul General read out the President’s message, addressed to the nation on the eve of 68th Republic day.

This was followed by a patriotic song “Ae Mere Pyare Wattan” by   Deputy Consul Rajeev Kumar.

To mark the Republic Day celebrations, few other performances including a patriotic Tamil song by Dr Usha Sridhar, recitation of a patriotic poem by Vimla Luthra and a dance performance by Dr Divya Sriram of Madhram Academy of Performing arts were held on the occasion

Light refreshments by Maya Da Dhaba were served at the end of the programme.
