RASHTRAPATI BHAVAN REVEALED ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL

On August 8, 2013, 10:23

 

New Delhi, August 8, 2013: In conjunction with India’s 67th Independence Day celebration on August 15, Discovery Channel presents viewers with an exclusive journey inside the majestic Rashtrapati Bhavan.

 

REVEALED: RASHTRAPATI BHAVAN premieres on 15th August at 9 pm only on Discovery Channel.


The program captures the story of Rashtrapati Bhavan from its conception to its completion and the changes undergone as the home of the Respected President of India. Rashtrapati Bhavan, amongst the largest presidential estates of the world, was the heart of the British plan for a new imperial capital.

 

Rahul Johri, senior vice president and general manager - South Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific said,   "Discovery Channel is privileged to present the breathtaking splendour of the Rashtrapati Bhavan - the office and residence of the President of the largest democracy in the world. On the occasion of this Independence Day, we are delighted to take viewers inside the corridors of the presidential palace rarely seen on the Indian television."

 

REVEALED: RASHTRAPATI BHAVAN chart the history of this building on two parallels. One story follows the shift of capital and the efforts of Edwin Landseer Lutyens as the architect of this house while the other takes viewers through the sprawling palace and its magnificent rooms. Every element in the Rashtrapati Bhavan has evolved over the past eight decades where the building has witnessed the transition from an Imperial occupation to being the home of the head of the largest democracy in the world.

 

The palatial residence is an extended expression of architect Edward Lutyen’s passion and finesse. From the most spectacular room in the palace, Ashoka Hall, to the Dwaraka Suite now used for serving the State guests – this exclusive insight into the President’s House answers a spectrum of questions on what lies behind the high gates. The programme also brings to light the design of the residence, the creative culinary quotient as well as the history and intense security.
