1 min read


To illustrate Kashmir’s historical and cultural heritage along with the military valour that has ensured that J&K always remains the pride of India, a “laser, light and sound show” has been conceived by the Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district.

The show, conceived by Army’s Chinar Corps, Dagger Division and its Pir Panjal Brigade and supported by Punit Balan Group at Boniyar, was inaugurated as part of the ‘Dagger Heritage Complex’ on Friday, by the J&K Lt Governor Manoj Sinha, in the presence of General Officer Commanding of Chinar Corps.

Srinagar-based defence spokesman said this “first of its kind” laser, light and sound show is a treat to the visiting tourists and locals.

“The show takes the audience on a nostalgic ride through centuries of documented history of Kashmir Valley, up to the present day’s progressive Kashmir,” the spokesman said.

This history is narrated by the ancient “Boniyar Temple”, (constructed by the ancient Avantiwarman rulers of Kashmir in the 12th century AD), through the voice of legendary broadcaster, Talha Jehangir.

The 28 minutes show features the geological as well as the mystic evolution of the Kashmir Valley.

“The show also showcases the valour and sacrifices of the Indian Army in ensuring that the constant evil designs of India’s western adversary in fomenting trouble and unrest in Kashmir are always defeated. The show ends on an optimistic note, with hopes of a future filled with peace, harmonious co-existence and development, while retaining the rich cultural heritage,” the spokesman said.

A very well-designed “Dagger museum”, showcasing the valour, sacrifices and social welfare initiatives of Indian Army in Kashmir, helps the visitors to grasp the efforts undertaken by Indian’s Security Forces in ensuring the safety and freedom of Kashmir, as well as India.

The popularity of the show promises an increasing footfall of local population and tourists in times to come, the spokesman added.
