India is about to celebrate the 68th Republic Day tomorrow and all we can anticipate is that the celebration will be a grand one. And happiness for the celebration just got doubled when the UAE announced that it will be celebrating India’s republic day in an unique way with a spectacular illumination of the iconic Burj Khalifa which happens to be the tallest building in the world with the colours of the Indian national flag.
The visual expression of the tri-colours underlined the solidarity of the UAE and its people with India, with which the nation shares strong cultural and trade ties. The illumination will be held on January 25, a day prior to India’s Republic Day, as well as on January 26.
The LED show will be at 6:15pm, 7:15pm and 8:15pm on both days with The Dubai Fountain performance complementing the grand illumination.
This year’s celebration will be even more special with His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, attending the Republic Day celebrations in New Delhi as chief guest. His Highness is leading a high-level delegation of ministers, senior officials and entrepreneurs to the country.
Emaar Properties has significant presence in India, one of its key international markets. The company had recently restructured its operations in the country to drive its ongoing developments and explore new growth opportunities.
Seeing this kind of gesture from the UAE, one can certainly understand that India is making it’s global presense.
