Anand Bhavan

While in Allahabad, we visited Nehruji's childhood home "Anand Bhavan" which is now a museum. They have done a reasonably good job of preserving the rooms where Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi stayed and how this place had its role to play in key decisions pre Independent India.

Jr. took this picture. Not bad holding a very heavy camera!

The lady with the handbag, with 200 questions per minute on the Nehru and Gandhi family. Daddy's knowledge fell way short when it came to answering questions. Did do okay in middle school history, but when you start from scratch it gets difficult to answer questions and when daddy give one too many "I don't know"s, it gets to be embarrassing..

The lawns are lush green and the whole place smells "history"!

If you go visit Allahabad and have kids who are interested in history, this is a must see.
