Burj Khalifa gets a tricolor makeover

If you are in Dubai, look up! Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, will be lit up in the colors of the Indian national flag, to celebrate India's 68th Republic Day. 

According to reports, the LED shows will be held on Wednesday and Thursday at 6.15pm, 7.15pm, and 8.15pm along with complimenting Dubai Fountain shows.

The Indian Consulate in Dubai has a flag-hoisting ceremony at the consulate premises by consul general Anurag Bhushan, followed by flag-hoisting at the Indian High School grounds in Oud Metha. The ceremony at the school will include a march-past by the students. In the evening, a cultural program titled "Aaj Ki Shaam Desh Ke Naam", will be hosted at the school grounds where the students will perform various folk dances and other activities. 

The illumination comes as the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, is the guest of honor for India's Republic Day on Thursday. He was ceremonially welcomed by president Pranab Mukherjee on Wednesday and held talks in New Delhi with prime minister Narendra Modi. Both sides inked a number of agreements.
