It was fifty years ago on the 1st May 1960 that the state of Maharashtra achieved sovereignty. In the years since, it has established itself as one of the most important states in India. The fiftieth jubilee was marked by an enormous celebration in the state’s capital Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay. Maharashtra Day, or Kaamgaar Din, is regarded as a red letter day in the Indian calendar.

Done Events of Dubai ordered for this event ten FALCON BEAM 7000W and fourteen FALCON 6000 CMY searchlights from A&O Technology Middle East. For the lightshow on Marine Drive and the Corniche Road, ten FALCON BEAM 7000W searchlights were installed on floating platforms some 400 metres from the coast in a line running parallel to Corniche Beach. In addition, fourteen FALCON 6000 CMY units were installed on towers of scaffolding on the Corniche itself. From these vantage points, they were not only able to contribute to the Maharashtra Day beam show but also served to illuminate neighbouring buildings. For the control of the FALCON xenon searchlights, a Grand MA Full Size console was used as well as an MA Ultra Light. Lighting Designer Sonu A.B. created a spectacular show including music, lasers, lights and fireworks that drew an enthusiastic response from spectators.

When the show was over, not only the Lighting Designer but also the client thanked the A&O team on location for their excellent work and cooperation.
