ISRK President Lailesh Kumar to Stage Cultural Event
2021 “Indo-Utsav”

The Indian Students & Researchers in Korea (ISRK) will represent “Indo-Utsav” to celebrate the colors of its independence as India is all set to celebrate its 75th Independence Day with full joy and enthusiasm.

This year the India's Independence Day falls on on Aug. 15, 2021, the same day as South Korea when the Korean Peninsula was liberated from Japanese colonial rule at the end of the Pacific War.

Dr. Lailesh Kumar, ISRK president, announced that ISRK aims to celebrate together with the people of Korea because it’s a very happy coincidence that India shares its Independence Day, on the same day on August 15 with Korea.

He urged the local Koreans to join them and to participate in “Indo-Utsav” event.

He added that the event is aimed at showcasing glimpses of India through activities, performances, and competitions in areas of music, dance, art work, fashion show, and photography.
