A new chapter in the history of the Red Fort was opened today when a new Light and Sound Show was inaugurated by Home Minister Shri Amit Shah.
The new avatar of the Light and Sound Show at Red Fort titled ‘Jai Hind’ has turned out to be a dramatic presentation of the bravery and the history of India from the 17th century to the present day.
The one-hour-long Light and Sound Show ‘Jai Hind’ divided into three parts has brought to life key episodes from India’s history including the rise of the Marathas, the 1857 War of Independence, the rise of the Indian National Army and the INA trials, the fight for Independence and India’s continuing progress over the past 75 years by using all forms of performance art - projection mapping, live-action films, light, and immersive sound, actors, dancers, and puppets.
The 3-part show was showcased at different monuments inside Red Fort starting with Naubatkhana to Deewan–e- Aam to Deewan-e-Khas.
The show has been showcased to the general public in English and Hindi Languages with a seating arrangement of 700 people for a one-time watch.
Beautifully conceptualized, scripted, and executed, this approximately 1 hour-long show is a one-of-its-kind visual and cultural treat highlighting India’s rich history and heritage to newer generations through interactive techniques.
The Light and Sound Show in Red Fort is commencing afresh after a gap of almost 5 years.
As a part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, the Archaeological Survey of India has already opened 4 Museums namely the Yaad-e-Jallian museum, the Museum of 1857- India’s first war of Independence, Azaadi ke Diwane and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Museum in Red Fort. Now the addition of the new Light and Sound show has further strengthened patriotic pride among the visitors.
In recent years, the Archaeological Survey of India is continuously working by glorifying the monuments and sites across the country thereby enhancing the visitor experience, be it the illumination during the achievement of 100 crore vaccination or celebration of 75 years of independence and hoisting G20 delegates.
