Locked-up legacy

The 19th-century playwright Girish Ghoshs house has been neglected for too long. A group of citizens have taken it upon themselves to preserve whatever is left

Girish Bhavan, the residence of playwright and poet Girish Chandra Ghosh in north Kolkata, is an important landmark. However, the house has been kept locked up for decades by Kolkata Municipal Corporation and little is known about the state of the house. It is believed to contain treasured belongings of the famous playwright. >
