Dear Friends,

To mark the 68th Independence Day of India, your Consulate will organise a Flag hoisting ceremony at the Consulate premises (No. 1, Eton Road, Cnr. Jan Smuts Avenue & Eton Road, Parktown, Johannesburg-2193) at 0800hrs on Friday, 15th August, 2014.

The Programme will include singing of the National Anthem and reading of the President’s address to the Nation on the eve of the Independence Day. This will be followed by light refreshments.

Taking into account traffic and parking considerations, we would advise our guests to arrive by 0745 hrs. We expect the programme to conclude by 0830 hrs at the latest.

The event is open to all Indian nationals, persons of Indian origin and friends of India. I request you to circulate this information widely within your organisation, among your friends, and well-wishers of India.

With warm regards,

Randhir Jaiswal
Consul General
