Netaji Bhawan - Review

Netaji Bhawan had been the residence of Subhas Chandra Bose fondly called as Netaji by Indians. He had been a prominent figure in India’s freedom struggle and till date considered to be a radical and powerful leader of his time. The place has now turned into a museum showcasing different aspects of his life. It is a place where historians and those with a knack of history flocks to sneak a peek into the world he lived in. It is also home to academic research bureau and a whitewashed building that is said to be his brother’s residence. Coming here, you will get to hear many stories, including those of his ‘Famous Escape’. Walk around to check out the numerous artefacts exhibited here and delve in the 1940’s vibe that this house beholds.
