Independence Day of United States: President of India Mukherjee felicitates and greets Americans
The United States of America is celebrating its Independence Day to commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago on July 4, 1776, when thirteen colonies merged to become a new nation and discontinued to be a part of the British Empire.

This week is the busiest time in the US as many people use the 3-day holiday period for extended vacation trips. The US Independence Day is marked by the late evening fireworks with safety precautions and accompanied by patriotic songs and the national anthem.

On the Capitol lawn in Washington, DC, the Independence Day Parade is to be held and a concert will precede the fireworks that attract large crowds.

President of India Pranab Mukherjee while extending greetings and felicitations to the Government and people of the United States of America on Independence Day, in his message said, "On behalf of the Government, the people of India and on my own behalf, I extend warm greetings and felicitations to Your Excellency and to the people of the United States of America on the occasion of your nation's Independence Day."

"The strategic partnership between our two nations – the world's oldest democracy and the world's largest democracy – is based on shared values and the growing convergence of our strategic interests. Today, our multi-faceted strategic partnership spans almost every aspect of human activity and has a critical global significance," added Mukherjee.
