Salute India 2010

On one of my work related trips to New York City, I happened to meet a very sweet girl. Prior to meeting her in person, we had minimal interaction via tele-conferences, but when we met in person, we hit right off and one evening, we went around the city for a fun girls nite out.

Now that she reads my blog, she shared with me pictures of the Indian Independence Day celebrations in NYC for my blog. So here is "Salute India", 2010 in pictures.

There were plenty of cultural activities and a parade where they walk down Madison Avenue. The Grand Marshall for the parade was none other than our bubbly Preity Zinta.

Mela like ambiance amidst high rise buildings in NYC.

Don't miss the 'Salute to India' sign on the Grayline bus.

Various businesses and groups participated in the parade like Haldirams, Kingfisher Airlines, Jet Airways, radio stations, Sahara One, India Abroad (magazine/journal) and various societies like the one above.

Last but not the least, there were organizations that make a difference in our society.
