Chennai Holidays: Republic Day

Today is Republic Day! I think it's pretty standard for every country to celebrate some day related to their founding. This year, President Obama was invited by Prime Minister Modi to be the "Chief Guest" at the Republic Day Parade in New Delhi. This has caused quite a stir in Mission India, but more on that in another post. Suffice to say, despite the "extra holidays" tag, many of the Americans in India are working today. Either way, Happy Republic Day!

PS: When I asked two of the local staff "How do you celebrate Republic Day?" They simultaneously answered with:
"Sleep in."
"Do nothing."

PPS: I love Modi's hat.
