Gandhi: A Laser Journey"
"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others"
- Mahatma Gandhi
September 15, 2019, Denver, Colorado:
"GANDHI: A Laser Journey", is based on the life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the Indian lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist, and political ethicist, who employed nonviolent resistance to fight against racial discrimination in South Africa, lead the successful campaign for India's independence from British Rule, and in turn inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.
This one hour-long, one-of-its-kind laser show transports viewers to the various chapters of Gandhi's life starting from the humble upbringing in a Hindu family in the small town named Porbandar, India, law studies in England, twenty-one years stay in South Africa fighting racial discrimination, and finally returning to India to liberate the country from the British rule - all through his strong belief in truth and nonviolence. When the country was divided and displaced people made their way to their new lands, religious violence broke out and Gandhi was assassinated. His spirit lives on through his messages of nonviolence, unity and harmony, forever.
For Gandhi's invaluable sacrifices and deeds for the common people of India he was often called "Bapu" (father) and "Mahatma" (the great soul). The affection continues even after his death. For his contribution of philosophy of nonviolence to the world he is often named among the 20th century's most important figures and revered in India as the 'Father of the Nation'.
The laser show extravaganza utilizes multiple color lasers, smoke and hazer machines, intelligent lighting, massive rear projection laser screens, and a sophisticated surround sound system that is designed to be performed in indoor or outdoor. In this production, historical facts have been presented by weaving colorful laser art and animation on screen with 3-d visual atmospheric effects in space using the cutting-edge laser technology. It is designed to be educational and entertaining, suitable for all ages - children to grandparents alike.
