NEW DELHI, July 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — To mark the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and pay tribute to his immense contribution in the independence movement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the unveiling of the freedom fighter’s statue at the India Gate, New Delhi. The project has been undertaken by the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA) led by its Director-General, Adwaita Gadanayak. To reflect the grandeur of Netaji’s personality, the statue is being made out of a single piece monolithic absolute black granite block weighing over 300 tonnes.
The research, consulting and sourcing for the best suited granite was carried out by an Indian firm, Granite Studio India (GSI). Headquartered in the capital, New Delhi, Granite Studio India has over 40 years of experience & has its state-of-the-art facility in Andhra Pradesh. The firm has actively shouldered & completed multiple projects of paramount importance like the National War Memorial, AIIMS TRAUMA CENTRE. Granite Studio India very recently handed over his newly constructed house to the Delhi Chief Minister, all the granite supply and fixing was done by the firm.
“Extracting a single piece large granite block of size 32*11*8 feet weighing 300 tonnes was one of the biggest challenges,” says the co-founder of GSI, Mr. Rajat Mehta.
He further stated, “With their innovative mining & block handling techniques, Granite Studio India made history for mining & transporting such a large block in a record time of 14 days. The block was extracted from a quarry in Telangana and transported to New Delhi. With the aggressive timeline, almost 37 tires of the truck busted during the 2000 km journey.”
He added, “It is a matter of pride and passion for us and our team at Granite Studio India to be able to serve in a historic project like this.”
