Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate the nine-day event commemorating Parakram Diwas on Tuesday at the Red Fort. Parakram Diwas is observed annually on January 23 to celebrate the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
The Ministry of Culture, in collaboration with allied institutions such as the Archaeological Survey of India, National School of Drama, Sahitya Akademi, and the National Archives of India, is organizing the comprehensive celebration. The event will feature various activities that delve into the profound legacy of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and the Azad Hind Fauj.
The Red Fort will undergo a transformation with a projection mapping show featuring artists from the National School of Drama. This visually stunning show will illuminate the walls of the Red Fort with tales of bravery and sacrifice, creating a fusion of history and art.
Special recognition will be given to the veterans of the Indian National Army, and visitors will have the opportunity to engage in an immersive experience through exhibitions of archives showcasing rare photographs and documents chronicling Netaji's remarkable journey and the Azad Hind Fauj.
The event will also include painting and sculpture workshops for a hands-on experience, and modern technology will take center stage with an AR and VR exhibition offering a unique and interactive perspective on historical events.
Entrance for visitors during the event will be free of cost, making it accessible to a wide audience.
