Indian Ambassador Hamid Ali Rao will raise the national flag at the Indian Embassy at 9 a.m. on Saturday to mark the country's Republic Day. "All Indian nationals in the Kingdom are cordially invited to attend the event, which will be followed by ceremonial meetings and exchange of greetings on this occasion," said Surinder Bhagat, a spokesman for the Indian Embassy.
A similar function will be organized by the Indian Consulate in Jeddah. Bhagat said India is celebrating 64 years as a sovereign state, and as one of the largest and most flourishing democracies in the world. "Considering, we are a nation of more than 1.2 billion people different in so many ways, this is no mean feat," said Bhagat.
He said that one of the most important days in the history of the nation, the Republic Day will be celebrated with enthusiasm and patriotic fervor all over India and abroad. All Indian schools in the Kingdom will remain closed on this occasion. Some community events have also been scheduled for the occasion.
