    Nafar Kundu Memorial

    Raisa posted on 11 August

    This memorial in Chakraberia Road (South) in remembrance of the heroic acts of Nafar Chandra Kundu. At the age of 26 in May 1907, Kundu, an ordinary citizen, risked his own life by descending into a manhole to save two sewage workers who were trapped in a manhole.

    A simple pillar has details of the incident inscribed on it highlighting the heroic act of a Hindu man sacrificing his life for Muslims back in 1907. What’s awesome is that the monument was built by raising funds from the public. You will barely notice the memorial today amongst the rush of traffic and chaos.
