Indian Republic day celebrations in Stockholm

Since childhood, Republic day and Independence day have been two occasions we eagerly used to wait for, not just for hoisting the tricolor but also for the sweets that we used to get in the school and later in college.

This year, we had the celebration of the 67th Republic day at the India House in Stockholm on January, 26. Apart from watching Indian President Pranab Mukherjee’s address and flag hoisting, there was a short cultural program attended by around 70-80 people, there were some performances by fellow KTH students as well.
