Indira Gandhi Memorial Museum is very simple but very attractive white bungalow; the reason for becoming important is – Mrs. Indira Gandhi, a great leader and the first female Prime Minister of India had been lived here. This is the same place where she (Mrs. Gandhi) had been killed by her two bodyguards on October 31st 1984; perhaps, due to this reason that this bungalow has been converted into memorial museum.
This memorial museum has been enshrined almost each and every memory of Mrs. Indira Gandhi including her blood covered clothes, her photographs (since childhood), her drawing room, study room and other memories of such kind.
Apart from all these things, this memorial museum also has burnt clothes of Rajeev Gandhi, her son and one of the youngest prime ministers of the world. Interesting point is Mr. Rajeev Gandhi was himself a very good photographer, so this museum portrays some of the best photographs explaining the best moment of their lives.
The memorial things not end here rather there is also a garden where Mrs. Gandhi had been shot dead. The place where she had been shot dead has been enclosed in a glass like frame, which gives the same ripple effect as river gives when wave comes.
Above all, the most inspiring part is her last write up (she had written before her death), it inspires and also increases the respect for her in the Indian’s heart. It says that how much she had been devoted for the country’s welfare and overall development.
