“For what is a nation? What is our mother-country? It is not a piece of earth, nor a figure of speech, nor a fiction of the mind. It is a Shakti…” (Bhawani Mandir, Baroda, 1905)
A crowding of too many emotions as we walked in a silent procession in historic Cooper’s Camp, Ranaghat, Nadia, responding to PM Shri Narendra Modi’s historic call for observing #PartitionHorrorsRemembranceDay. Sometimes referred to as the oldest & yet least known refugee camp.
Early today, visited Rashbehari Bose Research Institute & Museum in Chandernagore. As always was happy to meet Sh Kalyan Chakarborty director & a living encyclopaedia on revolutionary Rashbehari Bose & the freedom movement. Honoured to present him the #Tiranga. #HarGharTiranga
“…A heart that can feel for India, a brain that can think and plan for her greatness, a tongue that can adore her name or hands that can fight in her quarrel.” – Sri Aurobindo Hoisted the Khadi #Tiranga at our home in Kolkata! #HarGharTiranga #AzadiKaAmritMahotsav
