Dr Krishna Kant Sharma, who teaches history at Chaudhary Charan Singh University, shares his views on world’s largest museum in India

The world’s largest museum is all set to come up in New Delhi in the near future. To be called Yuge Yugeen Bharat National Museum, it will replace the present National Museum. It is indeed a huge step taken by the BJP government in the direction of preserving India’s vast, varied and rich culture for posterity. 

The National Museum in Delhi is able to display a limited cultural heritage of different periods in the Indian history; therefore, there is a need for a museum that displays all the chronologies together. The new museum is set to encompass our rich heritage right from the ancient times to the present. India is a huge cultural country with several traditional and folk customs that need to be showcased and preserved and displayed together on one platform.

Different states of India have their own culture and this culture is displayed in the state museums of each state. With this new museum, built in the capital of the country, the cultural heritage of every state can be displayed together and the whole of India can be shown to the people together. This, from the point of view of tourism shall be a great boost.

There are innumerable artefacts, paintings, sculptures, costumes etc to be displayed in this vast spread out museum. The Archaeological Survey of India time and again, is constantly excavating new places and more and more antiquities are being found there. This will only add to the immense treasure house of what we already possess by way of our rich history. All of these need to be displayed in one place. A large museum definitely is needed in India. With the museum showcasing the rich civilizational cultural of India spanning a period of 5000 years, it goes without saying that it will attract people from all over the world and we will open our doors for the world to see what Bharat actually is.

There are many aspects of Indian culture which can be understood as tangible and intangible. A large museum is needed to understand the entire Indian culture by showcasing all these aspects together. There will be immense knowledge shared here and that will further put India on the world map. I doubt if the 950 rooms that it is supposed to have, will be able to contain the infinite history and culture of such a vast nation that entirely stands on the pillars of these intriguing, mystical and magical norms, tenets, and value systems of our grandiose parampara.
