“Contributing to the Ramakrishna Mission Saradapitha is an honor. The Mission enshrines the teachings of India’s greatest spiritual leader and unifier of humanity, Swami Vivekananda,” explained Paritosh Chakrabarti. “This gift is a way for me to further those ideals. I am appreciative to Belur Math for accepting the donation. These gifts are also part of the ‘soul’ of PMC Group that I describe in my upcoming book, The Makings of PMC Group – A Corporation with a Soul."
The donation includes the notable Bose House which has been witness to many historical events and carries memories of great patriots and revolutionaries, the surrounding land, and a significant financial gift. The financial gift will provide for 1.) construction and development of two museum rooms, each housing panel exhibition-cum-photo galleries, manuscripts, rare and valuable collections and potentially, a multimedia presentation depicting the lives, activities, and legacies of Swami Vivekananda and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, 2.) production of cultural and educational activities to promote inter-cultural and inter-religious harmony and, 3.) installation of a commemorative plaque stating: “This historic Bose House Property has been donated by Paritosh M. Chakrabarti and Srimati Chakrabarti to Ramakrishna Mission Saradapitha, Belur Math for the Construction and Development of a Cultural and Educational Center to Promote the legacy of Swamiji and Netaji”.
The chairman of Rishra Municipality, Vijay Sagar Mishra said, “It’s a matter of great joy and honor for all of us to watch the handing over ceremony of Rishra Bose House to Ramakrishna Mission Saradapitha Belur Math. Converting it to a museum will bring the common people closer to the works and activities of the great patriot Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and Swami Vivekananda. The present generation must be made aware of the glorious history so that they can take lessons from it and go ahead in serving the motherland.”
