The India Day celebration at the place d’Armes on Saturday was a vibrant of sound, colour, movement and fragrance. The public square was transformed, with dancers and musicians providing an aural and visual treat for visitors, and tents lining a central avenue offering a feast for olfactory and gustatory senses. Two food stands, one serving vegan dishes, provided visitors with a wide choice of traditional Indian cuisine including some delicious curries, pakoras, samosas and Lassi drinks.
Stunning dance performances representing traditions and modern interpretations from many different Indian regions had audiences seated near the bandstand in rapture, and a sound system ensured that visitors at the other end of the square could not fail to gear the accompanying music.
IAL president Selvaraj Alagumalai thanked volunteers and participants as well as Luxembourg city mayor Lydie Polfer, the Indian embassy in Brussels, IAL founder and Indian honorary consul general to Luxembourg Ambi Venkataraman for making the day a great success.
