IAGB celebrated India Day Festival at the Boston City Hall Plaza on Sunday, August 19th with great pomp and pageantry. The new venue turned out to be perfect in more ways than one. About 8,000 people attended the event. Starting with yoga and meditation at 11 AM followed by games for kids and adults, the first half set up the expectations for the rest of day to follow. The main cultural event started with a bang (Dhol taashe and lezim) and ended with a bang (Boston Bhangra and DJ hour) with literally no respite in the middle. Program after program was alive with energy and vigor. The crowds were wowed by a surprise flash mob in the middle with almost 50 participants dancing to choreography and music spanning the length and breath of India.
