Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Hologram Statue At India Gate!
On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that a statue of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose would be built at India Gate to commemorate his role in the independence movement. A hologram of Netaji will be projected at the statue’s location until the installation is completed.
“At a time when the entire nation is commemorating Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s 125th birthday, I am pleased to announce that his big granite statue will be placed at India Gate.” PM Modi tweeted, “This would be a mark of India’s debt to him.”
“Until the magnificent statue of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose is constructed, a hologram statue of him would be there at the same location,” he added. On January 23, Netaji’s birthday, I will unveil the hologram statue.”
According to Home Minister Amit Shah, the statue is a suitable tribute to Subhas Chandra Bose. “Netaji is a symbol of India’s inherent power and determination. He tweeted, “Congress has left no stone unturned to erase India’s courageous son’s legendary contributions.”
WHAT IS 3D HOLOGRAM TECHNOLOGY?
A 4K projector capable of delivering 30,000 lumens of brightness will be used to power the holographic statue of Netaji. These projectors are costly, with one unit costing upwards of Rs 15 lakh and a maximum projection capacity of roughly 1313 feet. The hologram statue has a height of 28 feet and 6 feet.
While it’s difficult to estimate the precise price of this projector because there’s so little information about its brand and type, we can get an approximate notion.
A transparent holographic screen, in addition to a projector, is necessary to generate the hologram statue. According to a statement from the PMO, this holographic screen will be nearly invisible and placed in such a way that it is not visible to visitors. The holographic screen’s quality is critical in showing that the 3D picture is floating ‘naturally’ on air rather than originating from a screen.
Last week, a government official announced that this year’s Republic Day celebrations will begin on January 23 rather than January 24, to coincide with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s birth anniversary, as part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “focus to commemorate important aspects of our history and culture.”
Last year, the central government declared January 23 as Parakram Diwas or Day of Valour.
Chandra Bose, a member of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of Netaji’s 125th birth anniversary this year, requesting that the freedom fighter’s image be printed on currency notes. He also urged that January 23 be declared a national holiday.
