Friday 5 August, 8pm Auckland Town Hall | THE EDGE Free pre-concert talk at 7pm Celebrations a symbolic occasion Memorabilia: Neelam Choudary was responsible for this year's version of the India Independence Day souvenir booklet. Photo: MATT BOWEN It's a celebration of identity and sovereignty for Neelam Choudary. India Independence Day heralds a global cel- ebration each year on August 15 and the Bot- any resident is playing a key role in the upcoming festivities in Auckland. In 1947 the subconti- nent shook off British colonialism's shackles and forged ahead under its own steam. Ms Choudary says that moment changed India forever. India drafted its own constitution and it gave Indians an identity,'' she says. Without it India would have made par- tially the same progress but it would have lost its identity''. Bhartiya Samaj Chari- table Trust is organising a slew of cultural delights at the Aotea Centre on Sunday to mark the occasion. Ms Choudary is an executive member and has been busy preparing a souvenir book for the thousands of people expected to attend. The event features a flag hoisting, speeches and two hours of cultural entertainment. Trust chairman Jeet Suchdev says it's a very important'' and symbolic occasion. We celebrate those who sacrificed their lives but at the same time we can see the promise of India from there to here. It's a joyous occasion too.'' The free celebration runs from 10am on August 14.
