Celebrating 150 years of the Mahatma: Glimpses of LED Projection at Praca do Comercio (02.10.2018)

To launch the two-year program of activities to commemorate Mahatma Gandhi in Portugal as part of the world-wide Bapu@150 celebrations, the Embassy of India, with the active support of the Municipality of Lisbon, organised a LED projection of Mahatma Gandhi's images and messages on Tuesday, 2nd October, at the iconic Torreao Poente and Torreao Nascente at the Praca do Comercio. The LED projection also contained instrumental renditions of Mahatma Gandhi's favourite bhajan 'Vaishnav Jan To Tene Kahiye Je' by the famous Portuguese flutist 'Rao Kyao' and a fusion music video rendition by international artists. 

The Mayor of Lisbon Dr. Fernando Medina graced the event and jointly launched the LED projection with the Ambassador of India H.E. K. Nandini Singla. This was the first time that such a symbolic visual tribute was paid to the memory of Mahatma Gandhi in Portugal.
