New York City was the site of the 2012 Indian Independence Day Parade on Sunday August 19 with Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan serving as Grand Marshall.

India gained its independence from British rule on Aug. 15, 1947, and celebrations in the country are similar to July 4 festivities in America.

NYC Photo News was there to cover the action. More photos at www.nycphotonews.com
