Mukul, the Indian ambassador to the Sultanate, unfurled the Indian national flag and read out a speech by the President of India Pranab Mukherjee, at a ceremony organised at the Indian Embassy.
The event at the embassy was attended by some 400 members of the Indian community from all walks of life. Children of one of the Indian schools sang the national anthem and other patriotic songs.
Early in the morning, the ambassador unfurled the Indian national flag and witnessed a march-past at the Indian School Muscat (ISM) before reading out the President of India's address. Some 500 members of the Indian community, including parents, teachers and students, were present at ISM.
A bust of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore was unveiled, and a new school website was launched on the occasion.
