A humble museum of a humble human being

Though I am not much into Hindi Literature, but I enjoyed my school days when Hindi and English literature were the two subjects I eagerly looked forward to. I am sure the literature enthusiasts will be very pleased to visit Sumitranandan Pant museum. It is located near Kausani bus stand. The museum is actually Pant's own house where he resided. With the picturesque Himalayan view from the balcony, one can understand where the inspiration of beauty in his poems came from.This museum houses scores of monochrome photograph depicting Pantji and his life, his friends and his family. Few excerpts of his poems are also at display along with his personal belongings like the iconic glasses of his.It is a humbling experience to visit the Padma Bhushan and Jnanpith awardee poet's abode of inspiration.

A tribute to Pant sir

We were so glad to visit the gallery of the very honorable Sumitranandan Pant. It is actually his own house which has been transformed into his gallery. It has his handwritten poems, sketches, his writing table, bed and even his spectacles.
