Jang-E-Azadi: Freedom memorial museum

From the beginning Sikh community is rich in culture. They have their dress, dance, food and language in popularity. Apart from all this they are famous for their sacrifice towards freedom. There are many rebellions from this community who had played a major role in freedom of India from the clutches of Britishers.

There are many art galleries inside having photographs, models but the most interesting part of these art galleries are the way they are designed. Lots of electronics are used like touch screen information table, sliding screens, holographic display and projector screens so that people can not only see but interact with the history and facts in all new different fashion.

E learning now a days is the best way to convey knowledge as most of people from current generation believe in watching things rather than reading.

I am sure there is lots of interesting stuff coming soon as the construction is on process.

Museums are the way to connect generations and they provide direction to life. Every parent should take their children to such places to make them realise the worth of freedom and sacrifice because teenage is age where kids can be moulded.
