The Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas is also called Non – Resident Indian Day. It is celebrated on January 9 every year. It is celebrated to encourage the overseas Indian community to reconnect with their roots.
Why is it celebrated on January 9?
On January 9, 1915, Mahatma Gandhi returned to India from South Africa. He travelled to South Africa in 1893. He fought against racialism in South Africa. Till date Gandhiji is celebrated for his fight for the blacks in South Africa. As a non – resident India, he earned pride for his country. He emerged as a symbol of change and development. This is why January 9 was chosen to celebrate the Non – resident Indians in the country.
