Among those present on the occasion were Sarada Maa and Swami Vivekananda. After the restoration process is complete, there are plans to set up a museum and an archive to preserve Sister Nivedita’s belongings and historic documents, particularly her letters. “The very next year in January 1899 a gathering over tea was organised at this house on the suggestion of Swami Vivekananda and among those present was Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore.
