Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, eminent Bengali writer of the pre-independence era, is known for several of his wonderful creations, one of the most notable of them being Devdas. He had built a house in 1923 on the Banks of river Rupnarayan in the Samta village of Howrah district of Bengal. The house named Sarat Chandra Kuthi (or Sarat Smriti Mandir) is a heritage site and is maintained as a museum open free of cost to the general public where several of his personal artefacts are kept on the display. It is very near to Kolaghat and Deuti picnic spots and a perfect day trip destination for the weekends.

Few weeks back I got a chance to visit this place and noticed a vintage valve radio in one of the rooms. I was unable to get hold of the make so thought what can be a better place than HFV to share and invite suggestions. Does anybody have a similar model from that era that is still operational?
