Title: Gandhi Asram in Noakhali

The Gandhi Asram in Joyagram, Noakhali is still spreading goodwill to all men. Gandhi had stayed in Noakhali, Bangladesh from November 1946 to March 1947, during the violence that had plagued the Indian Subcontinent. It was at that time that the Gandhi Asram was set up. The Jamindar in Noakhali at that time, Hemonta Kumar Ghosh had given up his land to Mahatma Gandhi during his stay in Noakhali district. It was here that the Gandhi Peace Camp was set up. The students enrolled at the school now are learning more about Gandhi and his philosophy of non-violence. The Gandhi Asram Trust was set up in 1975 and the Gandhi Memorial Museum was established soon after. Here, various photographs and Gandhi’s belongings are displayed. Many students flock to the site to see what is displayed. Story prepared by AN Monju, DrikNEWS Correspondent, Noakhali, October 2013.
