  • Dimension of the hologram statue will be 28 feet long and six feet wide, official sources said
  • The granite statue will be installed under a canopy, sources said

On the occasion of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's 125th birth anniversary, Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled a hologram statue of Netaji at India Gate. He informed that a grand statue of the iconic freedom fighter will be installed at India Gate as a symbol of India's "indebtedness" to him. Till the statue, made of granite, is completed, a hologram statue of his would be present at the same place. In a statement later, the PMO said the installation of Bose's statue will be part of the year-long celebrations to mark his 125th birth anniversary. Speaking at the hologram unveiling ceremony, PM Modi said it was unfortunate that after independence, along with the culture of the country, work was done to erase contribution of many great personalities. Freedom struggle involved the penance of lakhs of countrymen, but efforts were made to limit their history as well. But today, after decades of independence, the country is correcting those mistakes.

    Netaji's statue - The highlights

    Asserting that the installation of the statue will be a case of India "reclaiming" its history, official sources said the dimension of the hologram statue will be 28 feet long and six feet wide. The granite statue will be installed under a canopy, which used to have a statue of King George V that was removed in 1968, they added.

    The hologram statue will be powered by a 30,000 lumens 4K projector and an invisible, high gain, 90 per cent transparent holographic screen has been erected in such a way so that it is not visible to visitors, the PMO statement said.

    The 3D image of Bose will be projected on it to create the effect of a hologram.
