Why shouldn’t we be proud of Mrs Droupadi Murmu’s election, asks Vikas Reddy a banking officer in Melbourne. Speaking to The Australia Today, “Australian or I should say western media portray a divide within the Indian community in the name of religion, caste and region.”

The Sri Durga Temple with 40 other Australian Hindu organisations performed a special ‘Havan and Pooja’ for the long life of the newly elected President of India Droupadi Murmu. Gurpreet Verma, Vice President of the management committee of Melbourne’s Shri Durga Temple told The Australia Today, “On behalf of the temple management committee I would like to invite the Honourable President of India to Sri Durga Temple for pooja-archna.”

Sydney-based Sheba Nandkeolyar is the founder & CEO of MultiConnexions Group. She wrote on social media, “#India you have done it again! You have made 1.3 billion Indians and the 31+ million diaspora living overseas proud of #NewIndia.”

Meanwhile, Perth-based organisation Sanmskruthi and NRI Rising Club also organised a celebratory programme and explained to its members what Droupadi Murmu’s election means to Indian Australians.

Vijay Kumar Pillai from Sanmskruti said that Ms Murmu hailing from the Santhal tribal community and taking charge from Ramnath Kovind who comes from the Dalit community says everything about India’s real transformation.

NRI Rising Club’s Rohit Aeri Sharma said, “I don’t know any other country than India who is making all efforts to make every citizen feel empowered.”
