New Delhi, Oct.14 (ANI): A magnificent laser show lit up the sky today evening during the 2010 Commonwealth Games closing ceremony, mesmerising spectators, sitting inside the packed to capacity Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in Delhi.

The show mesmerised and dazzled the spectators here at the stadia with dancing lights and formation of various designs.

Presented at the end of the closing ceremony to make it an unforgettable experience for people around the world, the splendid laser show looked simply brilliant to overwhelm all watching.

The laser show coupled with spectacular fireworks were part of the grand finale.

The laser equipment was imported from Europe to create special effects like sea waves and graphics with beams to light up the sky.

About 40 smoke machines, 10 full-colour laser systems and 40 blowers were used for the presentation at today’s ceremony.

Elated by the success of opening ceremony, the organiser of the closing ceremony had made a last-minute change for the event with a hope to make it one of the most spectacular shows ever held in India.

The German firm tarm Showlaser GmbH that had performed at the closing ceremony of FIFA World Cup, winter Olympics at Vancouver and Athens 2004 Olympics, was roped in for an eight-minute laser event.

The company claims to be the world leader in the field of innovative laser presentations since 1988.

Tarm Showlaser’s Managing director Ralf Lottig, who came to India on Monday, had promised that his team would put up a show never seen before in India and admitted that the expectation from their show was actually very high.

“We were asked to come to India last week only,” he told an English daily recently.

According to the organisers, the laser show has cost around Rs.1.5 crore. (ANI)
