Watch: Drone show at Raisina Hill on Republic Day 2022

The drones formed a variety of shapes including MK Gandhi's silhouette, India's map, and the National War Memorial.

On the occasion of the 73rd Republic Day, a dazzling drone show took place at Raisina Hill in Delhi.

It began with the unmanned aerial vehicles rising into the air in a tricolour formation. They formed a globe which then transformed into India's map, coloured in saffron, white and green. It had a revolving Ashok Chakra in the middle.

The formation then dissolved and the drones reassembled to form a silhouette of MK Gandhi, the father of the nation. Gandhi was shown in his iconic image of walking with a stick against a shining sun.


Subsequently, the drones formed an image of the National War Memorial, which has names of soldiers martyred since Independence. It was recently in news after the Amar Jawan Jyoti from India Gate was merged with the eternal flame at the War Memorial.


Following this, the drones formed the lion logo of the Make In India programme, significant because of the government's renewed stress on aatmanirbhar or self-reliant India.


After this, the drones formed the text '75 azadi ka amrit mahotsav', announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the country's 75th year of independence.


Subsequently, the drones formed the Indian national flag before descending.
