In Pics: Indian diaspora celebrates 71st Independence Day

Indians abroad celebrated the 71st Independence day with great gusto; hoisting the tri-colour, singing patriotic songs, wearing ethnic clothes and some visiting missions in their respective countries.

Here is a collection of beautiful photographs from across the world with a wonderful synopsis of the celebrations by good old DD News in mathrubhasha (Mother tongue) in the end. Jai Hind!
