Educational tour - museum

Educational tours are routine part of school curricula these days.

I too went with my school to an educational tour

It was to Shaheed Bhagat Singh Museum at Khatkarkalan, Banga

I was in 10th class at that time.

I remember how much we enjoyed.

We learnt a lot about our freedom struggle also

The museum displays memorable belongings of the martyrs of Punjab

The museum was inaugurated on the 23rd March, 1981, on the 50th martyrdom day of S. Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev

The museum reminds us the toil, sweat and the sacrifice which Bhagat Singh gave for the country’s freedom

I was awe-struck by the magnificent grandeur of the big bronze statue of Bhagat Singh at the entrance of the museum

What moved us most were the half-burnt ashes of S. Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev

The blood-stained newspaper in which his ashes were brought is also displayed

A copy of the Bhagwad Gita with Bhagat Singh’s signature is also displayed

Bhagat Singh’s family photographs, his jail diary and original documents of Lahore conspiracy are also displayed

The museum brings alive the life and times of this iconic revolutionary.
