About Us

During the 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav', events, exhibitions (online and offline) and publications about the unsung or unacknowledged heroes of the Indian freedom struggle will be planned. Many freedom fighters do not find place in the conventional freedom movement storyline. Moreso, those from the tribal or marginalized sections of society. One such example is Veer Gundandhur, who led the tribals of Bastar in the freedom struggle. Then there are Velu Nachiyar, Bhikaji Cama, and many more whose contributions are yet to see the light of the day. The ideals of human resolve, kindness and selflessness will be celebrated and promoted during the course of the events. With the element of inclusion in the conventional storyline, local history shall find place under the "Dekho Apna Desh". Every state and UT is planning events in accordance with this theme. Every state and UT is planning two/three historical events of local importance. The idea of unsung heroes will be intricately linked to the Visit India Year 2022 wherein regional art, culture, heritage, wellness and yoga shall be promoted.
