India is a land of multiple cultures, religions, traditions, and customs; its evolutionary journey started on 15th August 1947. On 26th January 1950, the Constitution of India was adopted. To mark the sovereignty of India’s Republic Day on 26th January, Maharashtra Mandal London will perform a Flag Hoisting ceremony at our Mandal, with Shri Manmeet Singh Narang – Minister for Coordination, High Commission of India London. A video of the occasion will be posted on the HCI website as part of our representation of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.
The importance of India’s Independence is very closely connected with Maharashtra Mandal London. During 1930 – 1932 Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, Narasimha Chintaman Kelkar amongst other important dignitaries, were invited to the UK by the British Government for round table conferences to discuss India’s demands for Self-Rule. Towards the end of these conferences, in the winter of 1932, Maharashtra Mandal London was formed by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, Narasimha Chintaman Kelkar amongst other notable public figures, to support the Indian’s in the UK
