“Rather than making it a mere celebration of colours, we thought of paying homage to our brave soldiers who in an effort to save our lives have sacrificed their own. We bought almost 100 helmets from shops that sell Army gear that were once used by the soldiers, and coloured them”, said Artist Vidhya Sagar Upadhyay.
