Best wishes on 66th Republic Day of India from United-21 Kodaikanal


India has made great strides since its Independence from the British rule on 15th Of August, 1947. However it indeed got its identification as a republic after three years of consistent initiatives to bring the world’s biggest written constitution in force. The day was 26th January, 1950. After that we have never looked back. Today India is amongst the rapidly developing nations, which is certainly poised to turn into the super power worldwide by the year 2020 based on the dream of our former president Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.
With each passing year, India has enhanced its reach globally. Presently, citizens from different parts of world visit our country and spend their holidays in our hotels and resorts. Visitors love India primarily due to its impeccable hospitality. At the time of India’s Independence, people were least interested to visit our country, but as decades passed by and we developed, more and more visitors wanted to experience the beauty of India. This has had considerable amount of impact on the hospitality industry. A plethora of companies jumped into the bandwagon and the number of hotels and resorts in India kept on increasing. Over the years, we have been fortunate to be part of this gigantic industry. We have proudly served visitors from different parts of world and we’d continue to do so for many years to come.

 United-21 Kodaikanal wishes you a Happy Republic day.
