And yes, if you are a new expat in India particularly in Pune, IMP thing = 15th August is a DRY DAY all over India i.e. all alcohol shops remain closed, no alcohol is served in restaurant even to non Indian citizens I believe at five star hotel. So... stock it at home to avoid any last minute disappointment. ^_^
Happy Independence day to fellow Indians on our forum. Enjoy your day.
Those expats who are interested to watch Independence day parade may attend it. Pune has big military base so yes lots of Independence day parade's will be there in Pune specially near Camp area.
