Celebration of 74th Independence Day of India
15 August 2020

Dear members of Indian community and friends of India in Mali and Mauritania,

Greetings from the Embassy of India in Bamako.

The 74th Independence Day of India will be celebrated on Saturday, 15 August 2020. As in previous years, we were planning to celebrate this joyous occasion with your participation. 

However, in view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and advisories issued by the Governments of India, Mali and Mauritania, a public gathering at the Embassy premises will not be held.

The Flag Hoisting Ceremony at the Chancery will be telecast live on Embassy's Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/IndiaInMali) from 9.30 AM. Members of Indian community and friends of India in Mali and Mauritania are cordially invited to join the celebration online.

We thank you for your understanding and hope that the situation will normalize in coming months so that India's Republic Day on 26 January 2021 could be celebrated the traditional way in your presence. 

Please stay safe and do join us online to celebrate the 74th Independence Day of India on 15 August 2020.
