Celebrate Indian Independence Day in Australia

Updated on August 10, 2015

69th Indian Independence Day

As it is marked in the home country, the Indian community may also follow a flag-raising ceremony, sing the national anthem, and attend various cultural events. Fireworks bring an extra spirit of festivity as the Indian Independence Day coincides with Australian wintertime. Indian flags on the vehicles also indicate commitment to the special day.

Indian news channels cover with fragments the events in the different states of Australia celebrating at international sports parks, or Castle Grand dinners, or Bollywood club parties, or day fair exhibitions, with Indian music and dance.


Indian TV Live covers the address of the Prime Minister to the nation.

It is during the morning celebration at the Indian General Consulate in Sydney that the General Consul reads the speech of the President of India, and a solemn reception is hosted. The high commissioner of India to Australia also extends warmest greetings to Indian nationals and people of Indian descent, as well as their guests. The address has a special value shedding light on the strategic partnership established between the two countries in 2009.

SMS, Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks bring greetings from the Indian community to relatives in India at midnight, as Australia is less than five hours ahead.


Indian school students abroad have their special performances during the Independence Day. At the consulates, or during cultural events, they sing patriotic songs, and dance under the rhythm of Indian music.

An exciting event is envisioned in Melbourne this year. To celebrate the Indian Independence Day by hosting an Indian Film Festival for the first time ever! India's flag will be raised by a special guest. The ceremony will focus not only on the national traditions and their components. The diversity of the Indian creative industry will be in the limelight, too. India's greatest stars will exchange views about their work; competitions will be held, chaired by the guests, as well as Indian film makers; local talents will be mentored... The two cultures will fuse in a symbolic way to celebrate the Independence Day, as well as the victory, creativity, diversity and freedom. The freedom of human mind and spirit!

The commemoration of India's Independence Day in colours, music, fireworks, excitement and splendid atmosphere may become a memorable event via YuppTV as a provider of Indian TV Live in Australia.

      After reading your hub, I feel that I have missed something. The concept of Film Festival to celebrate Our Independence is really unique. Fully Enjoyed.
