Let the hero have his Plinth- Cuttack artisan carved a fitting tribute to Netaji

Ahead of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s 125th birth anniversary on January 23, a 3-feet long statue molded by dexterous hands of Kedar Nath Behera, an artisan from Cuttack to be displayed at his ancestral home in Odisha.

Apart from this, a hologram statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose would be unveiled on January 23 on his birth anniversary at the India Gate. Behra was oblivious to the tweet by Prime Minister announcing that Netaji’s statue will be installed at India Gate to honor his contribution to the independence movement.

Janakinath Bhawan at Odia Bazar in Cuttack, the Birth Place Museum has already been converted into a museum with 12 galleries showcasing different artifacts and goods used during Netaji’s time. It is actually a big tourist attraction as he deceased in mysterious circumstances.

The 65-year-old artisan from Cuttack and 14 others have finished 15 idols based on the life of Netaji. The idols are made of soil, straw, wood and in some cases, we have used some iron pieces.

This is for the first time this is being organized by the Odisha Lalit Kala Academy (Odisha Lalit Kala Academy promotes paintings, sculpture, architecture, and applied arts).
