Amid a surge in COVID-19 cases in the country, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa lit up with tricolour in a show of solidarity.
The world’s tallest building lit up in saffron, white and green with the 24-spoked Ashok Chakra to show support to the country during this difficult time. The light show also had the message “stay strong India” displayed on the landmark.
“Sending hope, prayers, and support to India and all its people during this challenging time. #BurjKhalifa #StayStrongIndia,” the official Twitter page of Burj Khalifa wrote while sharing the video of the light display.
