‘I like the freedom’: Indian immigrants embrace Australia Day

Amandeep Singh Dharni will celebrate Australia Day with enthusiasm, after officially becoming a citizen last year.

Mr Dharni, who immigrated from India in 2008, and his wife will take their eight-year-old daughter and join extended family for a barbecue at Parramatta Park. Mr Dharni said they might swim in one of the local pools.

“I have a 100 per cent independent life,” he said. “I have nothing to say that is a bad thing about Australia, I have achieved everything in Australia, whatever I achieved, I achieved from here, I am getting rewarded for all the achievements.”

Mr Dharni said Australia’s multicultural society meant the family could practise their Sikhism religion at home and at their Glenwood temple in north west Sydney.
