The Federation of Indian Association (FIA), an organization representing the Indian diaspora in the US, is planning to hoist the biggest tricolor at the iconic Times Square in New York on August 15 to mark the 75th anniversary of India`s Independence Day. The 6 feet by 10 feet tricolor placed on a 25-feet pole will be unfurled by the Consul General of India in New York Randhir Jaiswal. The unfurling of the tricolor at Times Square is part of the day-long celebrations to be organized by FIA on August 15 which will also include India Day billboard at Times Square to be displayed for 24 hours. The Empire State Building will also be lit in the colors of the Indian tricolor and the day will end with a gala cruise on the Hudson River to be attended by top government officials, special guests, and members of the Indian American community. FIA`s current president Anil Bansal said the organization will also hoist the tricolor at the State Capital in Rhode Island. The organization`s chairperson Ankur Vaidya said they want to hoist the tricolor at Times Square every year. Indian American sporting icons Abhimanyu Mishra, who at 12 is the youngest Grandmaster in chess history, and 17-year-old Samir Banerjee will be honored at the event. Banerjee made history by winning the Wimbledon boys` singles final last month. Mishra and Banerjee, who are from New Jersey, are expected to be present at the event. Artists Jonita Gandhi and Mickey Singh will also be among the guests. As India marks 75 years of independence, the FIA is launching a campaign focussed on `Unified Diaspora in America` that will be for the betterment of the next generation and generations to come.
