Thanks, Ashish. It certainly looks like desert locust. I'll update the spotting.

Thanks for the pointers, ForestDragon. I'll try to zero in on the ID with these details.

This is a beautiful Grasshopper! It looks like a species of Bird Grasshopper, Genus Schistocerca (also called Locusts in some areas). I am not sure of the species though. It has amazing color!
