WASHINGTON: Indian Americans on Sunday celebrated the 71st Republic Day of their home land across the country with great fervour by hoisting national flag amid singing of national anthem and patriotic songs after gathering in large numbers in various US cities.

Several hundred Indian Americans gathered in front of the Indian Embassy in Washington DC to attend the traditional flag hoisting ceremony by Deputy Indian Ambassador to the US Amit Kumar. Before hoisting the tricolour amid signing of patriotic songs by students of Gandharva School of Music in Richmond, the Indian diplomat paid floral tributes to the statue of Mahatma Gandhi in front of the embassy.
