Celebrate India's Independence at Rockland County India Day Parade - August 14

Indian Flag at Sriperambdur

Rockland County will join its local Indian population by celebrating India's Independence day with a parade this Sunday August 14, 2011. 

India achieved it's independence from British rule on August 15, 1947.  In India the day is a national holiday.

Rockland's celebration will begin with a parade at 11:30 AM starting at the New City Library and proceeding down main street to the courthouse where after the hoisting of the Indian flag, a festival will take place with some fun activities planned for people of all ages. 

The event is an effort by the Indian Culture Society to promote Indian culture to the young people of this generation.  The program at the courthouse will be a combination of both traditional and modern.  On hand will be vendors selling decorative Indian clothing, Indian costume jewelry, and Indian food.  The kids there will have a chance to join some Indian cultural dance classes.

It's a way to recognize that although we may be different, we are all the same.  It's a melding of two cultures and a great way to show respect for each other!
So plan on coming and join the fun!

Leah, this is going to be such a great event. I read "Freedom at Midnight", all about the transfer from the British, while I was traveling through Europe right out of collage. Facinating story!

Connie - Should be a fun one.  Haven't read the book though maybe now I will.

Melissa - Certainly a fun time for the kids and a learning experience.

Cal - That's the point.  THanks for the visit.

Leah, some of my dearest friends in the world....literally, have been Indian.  I learned a great deal of information about the culture, foods and religions of that area of the world from them.  Some of them have since returned.  Others have moved, and one passed away far too early. 

Thanks for sharing this.

Suzanne, there's a fellow agent in our office who lived in India for 10 years and married an Indian woman.  I've been learning alot about Indian culture from him and his family.
