Dubai, Aug 15: Indian expatriates across the United Arab Emirates gathered here at the consulate on Thursday and celebrated India's 73rd Independence day.
Thousands of people thronged the embassy to witness the unfurling of Indian national flag. A statue of Mahatma Gandhi will also be unveiled in the Capital while separate celebrations are set to take place in Indian associations across the UAE, Khaleej times said in a report.
