Australia Day celebrated

By: Surinder Jain.

Both, India the land of Janma Bhumi of Hindus and Australia the karma bhumi of Australian Hindus, share 26th January as a very special day. India became a republic with its own constitution on 26th January. 26th January also marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and the raising of the Flag of Great Britain at Sydney Cove.

In present-day Australia, celebrations of Australia Day reflect the diverse society and landscape of the nation and are marked by community and family events, reflections on Australian history, official community awards and citizenship ceremonies welcoming new members of the Australian community.[1]

In keeping with the spirit of multicultural Australia, The Honourable Gladys Berejiklian MP, Premier of New South Wales invited various communities including Hindu Council to take part in Australia Day celebrations at Western Sydney Community Reception in Penrith.
