Netaji’s connection to Shillong

Netaji had a special association with Shillong and had visited the town thrice in his lifetime. Highly impressed by the democratic functioning of the Khasi states when he came for the first time in September 1938, Netaji had remarked, "Those who want to know about democracy should come to Khasi Hills."

Thank you @othnielpyngrope for bringing this up in the conversation on the post commemorating the death anniversary of U Tirot Sing. 👍👍🙏🙏
