Museums are always among one of the important ingredients in my travelling agenda and Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Museum, Delhi was a part of it. I was wandering in this metropolitan city from more than four days and still some places of interest were left out to be explored. Gathering knowledge of Indian history and various manuscripts and specimens of our ancestors and their cultures was my prime interest. Recollection, reconstruction and preservation are the unique attempts of this museum. Initially it used to be the living place of our Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, who resided here for sixteen years and was named as Teen Murti House. But after his death in the year 1964, it was transformed into a museum to endorse originality of researches in contemporary Indian History through reference of the Nehru’s Era.
The museum is encompassed by the green gardens with full of blooming flowers, where I spend some of the time to unwind myself. It is a spectacular and splendid structure with the combination of French and British architecture. A library is also situated inside the Teen Murti House, which exhibits the digital collection of historical documents, manuscripts and several others with the assistance of HCL Infosystems in the year 2010. The museum and the library have together supported number of historians and scholars from all over India through its companionship program. It houses a magnificent collection of reports, newspapers, book journals and various issues related with labor in figures of PhD thesis. Today in the field of Jawaharlal Nehru research resources, it is the leading center in the world. Some of the bits and pieces of such a wholesome personality are exhibited in the noted publications of the center and they are Man of Destiny by Ruskin Bond, Selected Works of Jawaharlal Nehru, Nehru Anthology and various others.
I was fortunate to be the part of the crowd who came to visit and know about the biography of this world famous personality. Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Museum, Delhi gave me many precious moments to be overjoyed for the life time. With this hope I moved on towards my next destination, National Zoological Park Delhi.
