A week-long celebration of the 75th anniversary of India’s independence was started by the Indian Consulate USA, in collaboration with a city-based cultural organization and a children’s museum, which featured traditional Indian paintings, music and storytelling.
On Monday, The Culture Tree said in a statement that The Consulate General of India in New York, The Culture Tree and the Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) launched the special activities along with interactive programs that focus on celebrating the diversity of India and its people through music, dance, literature, drama, puppetry, and food and art.
