It is the Indians living abroad who embody and perfume the high values of India through their lives. They are admirable ambassadors of India. Indians living abroad bring pride to India by respecting all cultures, working together with all and striving for the progress of all.
Love of freedom and commitment to democratic values are the main elements that bind India and America. It is a beautiful thing that India, the world’s largest democracy, and America, the world’s oldest democracy, are celebrating independence together,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his congratulatory message.
