Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to unveil Blue Plaque at Sister Nivedita’s London home
Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will visit London next month to unveil a Blue Plaque at Sister Nivedita’s family home, where she lived before moving to India in 1898, to commemorate her 150th birth anniversary.
The London Blue Plaque Scheme, run by the English Heritage, links major historical figures and the buildings in which they lived or worked.
The Chief Minister would be accompanied by Ramakrishna Math and Mission Vice-president Swami Suhitananda to London.
Meanwhile, Mamata Banerjee inaugurated the restored house of Sister Nivedita at Bagbazar in Kolkata where she had stayed and carried out social works, including setting up a girls’ school, in the early 20th century.
