Statue of Subhash Chandra Bose –
A grand statue of Subhash Chandra Bose will be installed at India Gate, Prime Minister Narendra Modi clearly marked on Friday, two days before the freedom fighter’s 125th birth anniversary.
“I’m glad to share that the grand Statue of Subhash Chandra Bose, made of granite, will be installed at India Gate. This would be a symbol of India’s indebtedness to him,” PM Modi twittered.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday clearly marked that a statue of Subhash Chandra Bose will be installed at India Gate to recognize his contribution to the independence movement. Until the installation is completed, a 3-D image (hologram) of Netaji will be projected at the point of the statue of Subhash Chandra Bose.
The statue of Subhash Chandra Bose will be installed under the grand cover near which the Amar Jawan Jyoti moved quickly in memory of soldiers who have died for the country in various wars and conflicts since Independence.
This Republic Day, as the fests are held at the redesigned Central Vista Avenue, its character would have changed-with the honey moving to the war memorial, and the hologrammed statue of Subhash Chandra Bose making its presence felt from under the canopy.
The dimensions of the upcoming Statue of Subhash Chandra Bose will be 28 feet*6 feet, people nervous about the future of development said.
The canopy, under which it’ll be placed, preliminarily featured a statue of Britain’s King George V, which was removed in 1968, they added.
About 150 measures towards the east of the India Gate, there’s a canopy that was built in 1936 as a respectful and honor-filled message to former Emperor of India, King George V.
There used to be a marble statue of George V, but it was removed due to fighting force from some political parties after India’s independence.
Now the statue is located in Delhi’s coronation Park.
Last week, the Union government clearly marked that starting this time, the occasional Republic Day fests will begin on January 23, rather of January 24, to happen at the same time as the birth anniversary of Subhas Chandra Bose.
Also, since last time, January 23 has been watched as ‘Parakram Diwas’ in memory of the former commander of the former Indian National Army (INA).
Statue of Subhash Chandra Bose, Chandra Kumar Bose, the grand nephew of Netaji Bose, “The people of India appreciate the sweats made by the NDA got under the leadership of Narendra Modi ji.
But what’s more important in moment’s India, and I’ve written this way to PM Modi, is that we must apply Netaji’s inclusive testament. He was the only leader who could unite the people ignoring their religion as ‘Bharaiyas’.”
“We’ve before now seen the dividing of India and Bengal. However, there would have been no dividing, If Netaji had returned to India. But India is breaking up again. Argument-starting politics must stop. We must have group harmony, “Chandra Bose said.
Chandra Bose also said that in his letter to PM Modi, he demanded Netaji’s statue to be built in front of India Gate, construct INA keepsake at the Red Fort, among other demands.
What is Hologram Statue?
A three-dimensional image formed by the interference of light shafts from a ray or other easy to understand light source.
Holography is a unique system of photography by which 3D objects are recorded using a ray and also restored as exactly as possible to match the firstly recorded object.
When illuminated via a ray, holograms (3-D images) are good to form an exact 3D duplicate of the object and copy its features.
Unlike ordinary 3D things that stick out, holograms (3-D images) can be seen with the naked eye.
About India Gate –
India Gate was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and was built in 1931 and at first named as ‘All India War Memorial’.
Given great ideas from the Arc de Triomphe in Paris and built in red sandstone and granite, India Gate stands 42 meter high.
During World War I and the Third Anglo-Afghan War, about 90,000 soldiers of the British Indian Army lost their lives while guarding the quality of being better than everything else of the strong British Empire. India Gate was built to recognize these soldiers.
One can also see the name of these soldiers wrote on the walls of India Gate. Before independence there was a statue of King George V just in front of India Gate which was removed after independence.
History of King George V statue –
The canopy, where the Statue of Subhash Chandra Bose will be installed, was built along with the rest of the grand monument in the 1930s by Sir Edwin Lutyens. It before now housed a statue of the former king of England George V, which was moved to Coronation Park in the 1960s.
Coronation Park is located on Burari Road in northwest Delhi, and was the location of the first Delhi Durbar of 1877 when Queen Victoria was signed the Empress of India.
Lately, the same place was used to celebrate the rising up of King Edward VII in 1903, and, eventually, it was then that the Durbar remembering with honor the Coronation of King George V as Emperor of India happened on 12 December 1911.
Following the independence of India on August 15, 1947, some of the statues of former British lords ( including the 49-feet marble statue of George V at Rajpath), governors and officers were moved to Coronation Park from various places across Delhi.
Significance and Need –
January 23 this time marks his 125th birth anniversary. Last week, the government had clearly marked that from this time onwards, Republic Day fests will start on January 23, instead of the usual practice of starting it on January 24, to mark the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
