Many Indian-Americans practiced yoga before a statue of Mahatma Gandhi at the India Cultural Garden in the morning, cleveland.com news portal reported on Saturday.

Many onlookers joined the session. Later the gathering marched with Indian flags to commemorate Gandhi’s “Salt March” – a protest that took place in 1930.

Later in the day, many Indian-Americans in Indian national flag-coloured costumes gathered in Rockefeller Gardens for more celebrations.

The programme included song and dance performances both in the traditional and Bollywood style. The meeting concluded with the chanting of the national anthem.

One Indian American, Om Julka, 97, told the crowd that he served in the Indian Army and he stood behind Jawaharlal Nehru at the first Independence Day celebration in New Delhi in 1947.

Look best this festive season with looks that can steal the show.

Suyash Singh, Regional makeup corporate trainer, VLCC and Hair and make up expert Aashmeen Munjaal of Star Salon suggest a few looks you can ace this festive season.

* Strobing: For a young, fresh, and ultra-luminous look, strobing is a great technique that is slowly becoming a new way to wear makeup. It is a technique that involves illuminating strategic spots on the face to give the skin a bright and healthy look. Strobing is slowly gaining popularity among people who prefer the more natural look to heavy contouring.

* Monochrome eyes: Monochrome is all about using single shades like beige, brown, pink and the latest in trend being peach. Use a single shade with smudge liner and smudge kajal along with mascara to complete a perfect monochrome look this season.

* Cat-eyes and bright eyes: When it comes to eye makeup, bright eye and cat-eye look is the perfect way to go this festive season. Dab a touch of shimmer or matt while thick black liner finishes the eye makeup.

* Hair: Different types of curls are in trend like beach waves, soft curls etc but curls should be done according to the weather because humidity might spoil your curls and look very shabby. Hair braids, messy buns, high pony and low buns look more festive.

* Lips: Glossy or matt – anyone can go quite flexible this festive season. Ombre lip colour is another hot trend this season. Ombre lips are when you use two shades of lipstick and one shade transitions into the second shade seamlessly. They do not just look gorgeous, but are also easy to attain. Just seize some dark colour on the corner of your lips and fill in the rest with a lighter shade and you are done!
