Gandhi Bhawan in Beleghata to be taken over by State Govt

Gandhi Bhawan in Beleghata to be taken over by State Govt

The Bengal Government has decided to take over Gandhi Bhawan in Beleghata (Kolkata).

Mahatma Gandhi had chosen to stay here because the Muslims and Hindus lived close to each other in Beleghata at that time, and there seemed to be no let-up in the bloodbath that began in 1946. As a tribute to his stay, the house was named Gandhi Bhawan.

After taking over, the State Government will be fully in charge of maintaining the house. The museum will be opened up for all and sundry. The government has plans for promoting the place as a major tourist spot, as it is intimately connected with the Mahatma’s philosophy of non-violence.

The museum houses artefacts used by Mahatma Gandhi during his stay. It also houses documents and letters.

Every year, his birth and death anniversaries, on October 2 and January 30, respectively, are celebrated with much fanfare here.
