New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled a hologram statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on the occasion of his 125th birth anniversary yesterday ( January 23). The statue is approximately 28 feet in length and 7.5 feet in width. The statue is powered by a 4k projector capable of delivering a brightness level of 30,000 lumens.
PDC says BJP does not have any achievements of RSS’s file and cadre, hence stole INA’s philosophy by erecting statue. However, Progressive Democratic Council (PDC) and its crucial NGO Azad Hind Parishad (AHP) expressed thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for erecting, first prime minister of Independent India, Nethaji Subhash Chandra Bose said President of AHP and chancellor of PDC.
“Netaji’s statue will inspire democratic values and future generations,” PM Modi said at the inauguration ceremony. PM Modi said that Netaji’s statue will remind democratic institutions, current and coming generations of “their duties and will inspire them.”
“We have to seek inspiration from Netaji’s ‘can do, will do’ spirit and march ahead,” PM Modi added further. The statue itself is powered by 2x30k lumens to help support the massive scale of the project. The statue is designed and developed by Tagbin.
In a series of tweets on January 21, Prime Minister Modi announced that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’ grand statue, made of granite, will be installed at India Gate. He said, “At a time when the entire nation is marking the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, I am glad to share that his grand statue, made of granite, will be installed at India Gate.
This would be a symbol of India’
s indebtedness to him. Till the grand statue of Netaji Bose is completed, a hologram statue of his would be present at the same place. I will unveil the hologram statue on 23rd January, Netajis birth anniversary.”
The statue will be installed under the grand canopy. Earlier canopy had a statue of King George V, which was removed in 1968.
CEO and Co-founder of Tagbin Saurav Bhaik said, “This is one of the world`s largest holograms. The most difficult task was mounting a 40-foot holographic screen inside the canopy without taking support from the structure and without making it visible to the human eye.
Because the hologram will be there until the granite statue is built, the screen should be able to withstand high winds and rain and remain stable in all weather conditions.”
