This year, the biggest highlight has been Prime Minister Narendra Modi's dream of being one with the people of our nation and this dream was realized by Wizcraft at the successful completion of two years of MyGov's participative governance, in August.

For the first-time ever, citizens from across the country came together on one platform to raise their concerns before the Prime Minister, who addressed the same and also presented before the world the achievements and highlights of our government and the idea of technology, assisted Jan Bhagidari in all spheres of governance.

Since this year marked the 300th Shaheedi Samagam of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, Wizcraft brought to life the story of the great warrior on a larger-than-life canvas by video-mapping Asia's tallest War Memorial Minar in Chappar Chiri, Chandigarh and a six-minute firework synchronised with a laser story board show and laser beam show, for the very first time in history.

This event witnessed by over 6000 attendees, acknowledged the achievements and heroism of the great disciple of Guru Gobind Singh and was followed by the main event in Delhi on July 3, where for the very first time in India, a Live AR was shot with an actual character, who resembled Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, walked into the audience on his horse and made circles around the guests and delivered his message to the youth.

With the Prime Minister of India, the Chief Ministers of Punjab and Haryana and the cabinet ministers were also present at the event.

This event was a huge success, leaving a powerful impact on the younger generation of Punjab and across the nation, and was appreciated for the grandeur of the celebrations.

Bringing together the President, the Vice President and the Prime Minister of India on one stage, Wizcraft proudly organised and executed the inauguration of Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum, which exhibits all the antiques received by President Mukherjee and the key memorabilia at the museum as an appreciation of our country's rich heritage.
