India Day in Esch-sur-Alzette (Luxembourg)

Yesterday, Saturday 17 September 2022, the main square of Luxembourg’s second city, Esch-sur-Alzette, where I live, was animated by a fine display of Indian culture.

17 September is India Day and this year marks the 75th anniversary of India’s independence. The event also dovetailed with the status of Esch as European Capital of Culture 2022. The programme offered the most varied and colourful manifestations of Indian dance, as well as sacred song (bhajans). There was official recognition via the presence of India’s Ambassador and Esch’s Mayor..

It is a pleasure and an enrichment for the inhabitants of Esch to have our main square become a showcase for the vibrancy of a different culture, and the organisers, the Indian Association Luxembourg, are to be praised for making it possible! Namaste and thanks to all involved!
