Hyderabad: The residence of Sarojini Naidu, Golden Threshold, located at the heart of the city will soon become a ‘Heritage Cultural Club’.

Freedom fighter Sarojini Naidu’s family bequeathed the building at Nampally to the university and it was here that the University of Hyderabad started its academic activities during 1974-1975. It currently houses the Centre for Distance Education but now university administration has decided to make the heritage building a platform for literary activities so as to provide writers, poets and artists a platform where they can display their art.

According to Pro-Vice Chancellor BP Sanjay, space will be provided for a museum, an auditorium, an exhibition and a lecture hall at Golden Threshold. The building was named after the book Golden Threshold, a collection of poems, written by Sarojini Naidu.
