The Excitement of Indian’s Independence Day Celebration

August seems not only to be a happy year for the Indonesian people. But also two countries in Asia those are India and Korea. This year, India has reached 73 years of independence and South Korea has passed 74 years of liberation. In Lippo Cikarang, there is an Indian community and on this occasion the Good News team had the opportunity to capture the Independence Day celebrations of Indian citizens (15/08).

On this occasion, Pd Ricky Sinan, S.H as the head of RT 04 RW 06 Taman Bougenvile Lippo Cikarang welcomed this activity. “I support activities like this, especially if done in public space so that citizens become aware and can exchange culture”, he explained.

Independence day celebrations took place at Taman Bougenvile Field, Meadow Green Lippo Cikarang and began by singing the Indian national anthem. This activity is intended for children to continue to feel the atmosphere of independence even though they are in Indonesia. Various competitions were held in these activities, among others; knowledge test about India and making paper craft with saffron, white, and green color that represent Indian’s flag.
