World's Tallest Building is draped in the colours of Indian flag
In an extraordinary gesture of warmth and friendship, United Arab Emirates (UAE) has lit up the iconic Burj Khalifa in Dubai and several other important buildings in Abu Dhabi in Indian flag colours. Three times on Wednesday evening, the musical fountains adjacent to the world's tallest building leapt to the strains of Jai Ho and Vande Mataram as a mile high electronic tricolour draped the Burj Khalifa, official spokesperson of the External Affairs Ministry said. Coming on the eve of India's Republic Day and coinciding with the State visit of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, the combination of lights and music drew rapturous applause from crowds of Indian, Emiratis and other visitors. The same inspiring sequence will be repeated on Thursday as well."
