New Delhi, November 15, 2019: Barco, a market leader in technology and innovation, celebrated a vibrant Children’s Day at the Swaminarayan Akshardham temple, New Delhi, today by hosting a day-out for 30 children aged 6-12 years from Sakshi NGO. In addition to Children’s Day, Swaminarayan Akshardham is also celebrating 14 years of completion since its opening in November 2005.
Celebrated across the country, Children’s Day is an occasion to increase awareness of the rights, care and education of children.
The children received a guided tour of the temple and enjoyed interactive exhibitions during the visit. The shows were a source of education, information and inspiration and a fourfold combination of art, science, culture and spirituality. Artistically mesmerizing, scientifically stunning, culturally moving, and spiritually elevating, the exhibitions ensured that the children had an informative and culturally-influenced day.
During their 3-hour visit, the children enjoyed the shows at Sahajanand Darshan – Hall of Values; Neelkanth Darshan – Large Format Film aired on Barco’s latest installation at Akshardham, the XDL 60K true RGB laser projector and Sanskruti Darshan – Cultural Boat Ride. The fourth major attraction at Akshardham, the Sahaj Anand multi-media water show is also powered by Barco, through the UDX 30K laser phosphor projector.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr Rajiv Bhalla, Managing Director, Barco Electronics Systems Pvt. Ltd said, “Barco is committed to innovation and ethical upliftment of the society and that is the reason we have joined hands with Sakshi NGO. We are immensely pleased to have brought the children to Swaminarayan Akshardham today and are glad that they had an amazing experience while sharing this special day with us. This initiative not only supports our sustainability and CSR efforts, but also reinforces the Barco cultural building block ‘we care, we grow’.
