WATCH: The work behind the historic statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at India Gate!


Recently, a 28-foot-tall statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was installed at India Gate, New Delhi. Placed under the canopy, the black granite statue of the Indian chief is a center of attraction for visitors. It is placed behind India Gate. On Tuesday, the Ministry of Culture released a video showing the hard work behind the historic statue at the nation’s capital’s most iconic spot.

“The hard work behind the historic statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at India Gate! Sculptor @yogiraj_arun’s video on the 75-day #Netaji statue-making process, carving a 280-ton monolithic granite statue is breathtaking,” the ministry tweeted from its official Twitter account.

In the video clip, we can see the different stages the statue went through, from the beginning to the final installation.

Mysuru-based sculptor Arun Yogiraj is the sculptor. To view, search and procure the monolithic fine black granite block of record weight and size, Granite Studio India, a leading granite company based in Andhra Pradesh and headquartered in Delhi, has been selected.

It was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 8, 2022. Netaji, the Prime Minister recalled, was proud of India’s heritage and at the same time he wanted to make India modern.

“If after independence India had followed the path of Subhash Babu, how high would the country be today! But unfortunately, this great hero of ours was forgotten after independence. His ideas, even the symbols associated with them, have been ignored,” the Prime Minister lamented.

“It is our effort to have the energy of Netaji guide the country today. The Netaji statue on the ‘Kartaji Path’ will become a medium for this,” he said. He added, “Over the past eight years, we have made many such decisions one after another, which are imbued with Netaji’s ideals and dreams. Netaji Subhash was the first leader of Akhand Bharat, who liberated Andaman before 1947 and hoisted the Habs. At that time, he had imagined what it would be like to hoist the Habs at Fort Rouge. I personally experienced this feeling when I had the privilege of hoisting the Habs at Fort Rouge on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Azad Hind government.
