Lawyer sets up Netaji museum in Kendrapara
Kendrapara (Orissa): A private museum
here that houses several antique collections on Netaji
Subash Chandra Bose drew many admirers of the great leader on
his birth anniversary.
A young lawyer, Mohammad Mustaque, has set up the
museum at his home in Fakirabad locality of the town.
For the 46-year-old lawyer, collecting and preserving
antiques was a hobby. Now it’s a passion. In his private
museum, a wide range of collections on the nationalist
leader find a pride of place.
The unique collections included rare photographs,
letters, manuscripts, magazines, journals and coins related to
Netaji. Majority of these collections fall under rare category
and are worthy of preservation in national level museum.
“Since childhood, I was an ardent fan of Netaji. His
magnetic personality drew me towards knowing more about him.
The children of my age adored Bollywood heroes, but for me he
was my idol. Later on, I began to collect everything that
had even Netaji’s name,” Mustaque recalled.
“It was three decades of perseverance and hard work
that is now paying dividends. I am proud that my collection on
the great leader is drawing people from various parts.”
