"And to top up the celebrations, the iconic #niagarafalls light up in Indian colours on our #74thIndependenceDay. Thank you Canada, thanks to Team @IndiainToronto. No better emblem of the strength of Indian-Canadian ties!" he tweeted.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau extended his greetings on the occasion.

"Today, we join the people of India and Indian-Canadian communities across Canada to celebrate the Independence Day of India, the world's largest democracy. Canada and India have a strong, longstanding, and vibrant relationship built on our shared traditions of democracy and pluralism, and deep cultural and people-to-people ties," he said in a statement.
