Thanks, Ashish. It certainly looks like desert locust. I'll update the spotting.
Adult stage of Brown Locust.
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!
