The immense promise of LIGO-India in enabling localisation of gravitational-wave events in the sky and launching gravitational-wave astronomy. The grey banana- shaped patch spanning 2,500 moons is the current uncertainty of the localisation of the first discovery event. The small dark ellipse that is 100 times smaller shows the forecast uncertainty for a similar gravitational-wave signal when LIGO-India is operational
