71st Republic Day of India Celebration in Cork City

As representatives of our Business Management Centre we were honored to be invited by Embassy of India to celebrate the 71st Republic Day of India held in Cork City Hall today, the 27th of January 2020.

Republic Day is a national holiday in India. On the 26th of January 1950 the Constitution of India came into effect replacing the Government of India Act 1935. Therefore, the new document helped to turn the nation into a newly formed republic.


What do you think and imagine when you hear it? For me, first of all, it’s a beautiful, mystical, undiscovered. However, far and enchanting country. I haven’t visited it yet but I can’t wait to go there and feel the soul of it. I loved watching Indian Bollywood movies when I was a child. Though, I couldn’t dream that one day I will be a guest at such an important celebration.

It was an amazing opportunity for business centre to join Indian people on this day.

You feel welcomed just entering the Cork City Hall. His Excellency Mr. Sandeep Kumar, Indian Ambassador of Ireland friendly greeted everyone at the entrance. Irish and Indian anthems, Indian music and dances made us feel like a very important part of it. The Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr John Sheehan, the Mayor of County Cork, Cllr Christopher O’Sullivan, Indian community, locals and guests from other cities, business people, college representatives and students, we all were there to celebrate.

Indian people hospitality always surprise us and make us feel so special. The event didn’t end listening to speeches, history and watching dances. It ended enjoying delicious Indian food, meeting new people and sharing our experiences.

As the owner of an International Business Management Centre in Cork, I know how important it is to work together, discover and understand other nationalities. We can share our knowledge, experiences and ideas. This makes us smarter, stronger and open minded. All together we are the power.
