The National Games Virtual Torch
A Virtual Torch is the digital version of the real flame that traditionally travels a long journey in the hands of leading sports personalities before it is transferred to the Games cauldron during the Opening ceremony of mega sports events.
The National Games Virtual Torch is a mobile App that serves to transfer the digital torch from mobile to mobile on a virtually unlimited travel across the globe. One can share the App to friends and acquaintances anywhere in the world through social media and get them to download the app, light the torch and thus become a virtual torch bearer. The App can be downloaded from the Play Store on your Android mobile and will give you a virtual torch, which can be lit by shaking/touching it on the screen.
The physical Games torch will be lit a few weeks before the Games, travel physically across many towns and cities and will be finally brought to Thiruvananthapuram just prior to the opening day of the Games on 31st January 2015
The virtual torch relay will hopefully provide a high-tech platform to unite all Indians across the world by making them light a flame digitally and virtually become a part of the National Games irrespective of where they are.
