IAGB Thanks Everyone for a Successful Republic Day Event- Celebrating the Legacy

IAGB community celebrated the annual Republic Day event in high spirits. The event took place on January 28th, 2023 at Burlington High School. It was a day long activity full of competitions, cultural programs, shopping opportunities and of course, food. Thousands of community members participated and enjoyed this event.

The highlight of the cultural programs on the stage this year was the ‘Fashion Show’ put together by over 30 amateur and professional community members. It showcased traditional attires from various regions of India and the trendiest Indian clothing. The stylish presentation received hearty applause from the audience. And the annual tradition of staging dance performances representing all corners of India received no lesser cheering. New England area dance schools and groups showcased various performances to present the cultural and relations legacy we are proud of and have built upon. Audience was waiting to get swayed by their family members and friends on the stage dancing to the rhythmic music. IAGB stage saw the cutest ever Jan Gan Man (India Anthem) rendition by Shishubharti students.

Our Guest of Honor, Dr. Manju Sheth, was recognized on stage for her numerous community contributions. In her address to the community, Dr. Sheth appealed everyone to get acquainted with the necessity of ‘bone marrow donations’ and to participate in donation programs.

This year over 300 participants had registered for 12 IAGB competitions. BHS campus was bustling throughout the day as many kids were rushing for multiple competitions. The winners were awarded on the stage during the main cultural program at the hands of the IAGB President and other dignitaries.

All the attendees got to shop around the vendors’ area leading up to the auditorium. It added into the festive mood. Shoppers as well as vendors had a great time of mutually beneficial interactions. Sumptuous food offered by Paani helped everyone to keep going on for hours.

A team of over 25 volunteers and IAGB executive committee members worked together to make this event a great success. IAGB wholeheartedly thanks the volunteers, supporters, advertisers, corporate sponsors, media partners, and the service providers. Offering a free event for our Indian American community members wouldn’t have been possible without their help and support.
