Have you been to the National Gandhi Museum in Delhi?
For all the history buffs out there, Delhi is nothing short of a pandora’s box. Here, you never know what you’re going to find and when you do, it sticks out and makes you see the city in a new light. With all the Mughal culture, it is easy to lose track of our nation’s past and the freedom struggle. To rekindle yourself and understand history, National Gandhi Museum is where you need to be.
The National Gandhi Museum has a very rich collection of original relics, books, journals and documents and other such memorabilia closely connected with Mahatma Gandhi, Kastur Ba and the Indian Freedom Struggle. Each of the artefacts here give you a new perspective on the struggle that our freedom fighters and the nation as the whole went through.
The origin of this museum goes back to the period soon after the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. The slow initial process of scouting for, collecting and preserving the personal relics, manuscripts, books, journals and documents, were hard to obtain but curators were certain that it could go into a museum on the life, philosophy and work of Gandhiji.
The goal of the museum is essentially to collect, preserve and display Gandhiji’s records consisting of his letters, correspondence, books, cine-films, manuscripts, photographs, voice records, personal effects and mementos. They also wish to promote the study of Gandhiji’s life and message through the establishment of Sangrahalayas, Gandhi Galleries, Gandhi Shelves in places of public interest and through other media of communication.
Here, the artefacts are well kept and do a great job of taking you on a path down the historical lane. Since there are also several audio visual experiences here, it is a great place to enhance your knowledge in an intuitive as well as involving manner.
