Lost in silence/Martyrs’ Day: Amid traffic halt and “charkha” spin, Lucknow carries on oblivious

The Gandhi Museum Sangrahalaya library in Lucknow is struggling to attract readers, with only three to four people, and sometimes none at all, visiting in a day. The decline in membership and readership is attributed to online reading habits of youths, who are more interested in materialistic ideologies. In addition, the Uttar Pradesh Gandhi Smarak Nidhi faces financial challenges after losing its significant source of income. Despite these challenges, the organization continues to preserve and promote Gandhi's legacy. There is a need for proactive engagement and outreach to bridge the gap between Gandhi's principles and the interests of today's youth.
