INDIA REPUBLIC DAY

Written by jacqui. Posted in News

Diwali Day January 26

 

India Republic Day is celebrated every January 26 to mark coming into force of Indian constitution. It is one of three national holidays in India.

The main Republic Day celebration is held in the national capital, New Delhi with great pomp, fanfare and pageant. The Republic Day celebrations of India have rightly become world famous as one of the greatest shows on earth.

Since 1950, India has been hosting heads of state or government of another country as the state Guest of Honor for Republic Day celebrations in New Delhi. In 2015, President Barack Obama will travel to India as chief guest for India’s Republic Day celebrations

LOTUS THANKSGIVING DINNER TV COVERAGE

Written by jacqui. Posted in News

LOTUS THANKSGIVING DINNER TV COVERAGEFor the 10th year in a row Lotus has given back to the community for Thanksgiving.

In 2014 Lotus Cuisine and Cafe Lotus served almost 1,000 FREE meals for Thanksgiving.

ABC7 NEWS

We made the ABC Evening news! Watch it here:

abc7news.com/food/san-rafael-indian-restaurant-serves-free-meal-to-hundreds/413256/

There’s no turkey, but there’s Indian food. The line of people waiting in line for it stretches around the block and this has become a Marin County tradition for 10 years. We can thank one man who is extremely thankful himself.

ABC7 News followed the man into the kitchen who was about to serve more than 1,000 people Wednesday night, out of two restaurants and all for free. At Lotus Cuisine of India in San Rafael, Paul Sroa and his staff have turned it into a habit and self-imposed privilege for a decade.

“It is not a lot of work. It is a lot of feeling good because you are giving back,” Sroa said.
