India Day Parade in New York will feature a tableau from the Ayodhya Ram Temple

The upcoming India Day parade in Manhattan is set to feature a spectacular tableau showcasing a grand replica of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir, marking a significant cultural highlight for the Indian community. Organized by the Federation of Indian Associations NY-NJ-CT-NE (FIA), the 42nd Annual India Day Parade NYC on August 18 will prominently display this representation of the recently inaugurated Ram Mandir.

Renowned Indian actor Pankaj Tripathi has been named as the Guest of Honour for the event, which draws thousands from the Indian diaspora to Madison Avenue. The parade serves as a vibrant celebration of India's cultural heritage, with the city adorned in the colors of the Indian tricolor and resonating with patriotic songs.

Consul General of India in New York Binaya Pradhan emphasized the parade's historical significance and pledged the consulate's support to showcase India's rich culture. FIA President Dr. Avinash Gupta highlighted the parade's theme, 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam', underscoring its message of global unity.

The centerpiece of this year's parade, the 18-foot long, 9-foot wide, and 8-foot tall replica of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir, symbolizes a monumental moment for the global Indian community. The parade will also feature participation from organizations like Vishva Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA), Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS), and Siddhivinayak Temple, who unveiled a small replica of the Ram Mandir float during the curtain-raiser event.

FIA Chairman Ankur Vaidya encouraged community collaboration to ensure the parade's success in showcasing India's diverse cultural tapestry to not only the Indian diaspora but also communities across New York and the tri-state area.
