Make in India dazzles at Bahrain Air Show

As a show of exciting proposition, it was breathtaking, to say the least. The manner the minutest of detail was executed to crystal clear precision, it left everyone wonderstruck. The charming effect was as mesmerising as the men who piloted the aircraft with their sortie-like maneuvers and dexterous dare-devilry.

What gladdened the Indian hearts and made people like me proud was that the honours and spotlight were grabbed by the magnificence of the country’s indigenously developed Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas, which the world was seeing for the very first time as it was making its foreign air show debut.

Taken as a whole, the awe-inspiring mid-air thrillers were worth the wait for hundreds and thousands of fortunate people, who were around, and also to millions who could catch the action on small screen. For one who has covered many such out of the ordinary spectacles during a three-decade career as a photo-journalist, even I was left speechless.

The Bahrain International Air Show (BIAS) that was inaugurated by Sheik Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the Prime Minister of Bahrain, and was held from Thursday to Saturday, was spectacular when taken from any angle and under any yardstick.  In doing a thorough professional job, the organisers have set a fine example for other countries, most notably to India and other Asian nations, of what a spellbinding global event can bring in as tourism revenue and help strike bilateral deals, along the way.
