Typical Inauguration Lamp, which is commonly used in most of the events in India - Exhibitions, Festivals & other ceremonies
(Migrated from other blog) Most of the event photographers in India must have clicked similar photographs during different events across different states and regions of India. It's a typical style of ceremonial inauguration of any institutional event, national activities, political events etc.
Some of the chief guests, known personalities and important people come on to the stage and light this lamp. This symbolizes official inauguration of any special event at state or national level. I have a decent collection of such photographs from various events in our country and will sometime share a PHOTO JOURNEY around the same.
