Mamata unveils plaque at Sister Nivedita's UK home

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has unveiled a commemorative blue plaque at the London family home of Sister Nivedita, the Scottish-Irish social worker and follower of Swami Vivekananda best known for her charitable work in Kolkata.

The house on Wimbledon High Street in south-west London was Sister Nivedita's home before she moved to Kolkata, then Calcutta, to set up a school and help the poor.

"This is a rare privilege for us. Sister Nivedita, a daughter of this soil, was dedicated and devoted to India. Our country can never forget her," Banerjee said at a ceremony to mark the unveiling yesterday.
