Historic speeches go digital in Kolkata

An exhibition has been organised here which will allow people to listen to digitised recordings of speeches by India’s great leaders, freedom fighters and famous personalities.

An initiative by the Weavers Studio Centre for the Arts to benefit youngsters, the “Saare Jahan Se Accha” audio-visual programme running in south Kolkata’s Ballygunje has nearly 100 such rare speeches from 1900-1950s.

For example, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s moving broadcast from Tokyo to India and the original version of national anthem sung by Nobel laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore can be heard in kiosks at the exhibit.
