To mark India's 68th Republic Day, an umbrella body of Indo-Canadian community organisations here will host a one-day entertainment event in Brampton, a suburban city of Toronto with a large presence of the community.
Panorama India has been hosting this event for the last several years to promote India's cultures and heritage. This year's event features cultural exhibits, a folk dance competition along with the Panorama Idol finale, a Bollywood singing competition, where people can vote for their favourite singers.
There would also be a drawing competition for children and an exhibition of handicrafts, ethnic outfits, jewellery and food showcasing various regions of India.
On January 26, a large number of Indo-Canadians, leaders and politicians are expected to attend a flag-hoisting ceremony at the Indian mission in Toronto.
Consul General Dinesh Bhatia will lead the ceremony with his wife Seema.
