Netaji Birthplace in Cuttack

July 9, 2003

I had the pleasure of visiting Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s birthplace. I
never knew it was in Cuttack
. I was very happy to note that my former
student & the Collector of Cuttack, Mr Ashwinin Kumar Vaishnaw, IAS, was
instrumental in getting this place “recovered”. It was an inspriring place no
doubt.

There is so much money that goes into digitization of all kinds of things;
will some one in IT Ministry take care to preserve the rich heritage of
Netaji’s birthplace digitally & make it available to the countrymen at large?

(deep feelings on the visit to Netaji’s birthplace today)
