Netaji’s Primary School Register Unearthed, to be Displayed at Netaji Birthplace Museum On Jan 23

Cuttack: Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s early education records, specifically his enrollment in serial no 167 at the Protestant European School (now Stewart School), will be showcased at the Netaji Birthplace Museum in Cuttack’s Odia Bazaar on his birth anniversary, January 23.

The school authorities have handed over the admission register, covering the period from 1887 to 1935, to the museum officials. This historical document, detailing Bose’s primary education from January 8, 1902, to December 31, 1908, will be displayed in gallery no-1 during the museum’s celebration.

The curator-in-charge of the Netaji Birthplace Museum, JP Ray, mentioned that although records of Bose’s schooling at Ravenshaw Collegiate School were preserved and showcased, those related to his primary education were previously unavailable. With the contribution from Stewart School authorities, this gap has now been filled, and the museum is set to present the comprehensive educational journey of Netaji.

In preparation for the birth anniversary celebration, the Netaji Birthplace Museum has undergone a transformation, featuring architectural illumination at a cost of Rs 64 lakh. Executed by the Odisha Small Industries Corporation Ltd. (OSIC), the project has been completed, and the museum will showcase a new look starting January 23.

The architectural illumination, incorporating advanced technology, ensures continuous operation even during rainfall. The historic building will be adorned with tri-colour lights, creating a visually stunning display with changing colours every second.
