Uttarpara - a small town on the banks of river Hooghly - is an outstanding place for many reasons


For, this narrow stretch of 2-Km land has witnessed so many historical events, initiated such path breaking liberal movements in 19th century Bengal, touched lives of such an astounding array of luminaries and pioneered so many social transformations - that far outstrips its size or significance accorded in contemporary history.


A fair and un-biased compilation of its golden past and vibrant present is essential for anyone interested in development of Bengal and its culture.

-Major part of the content is based on memoirs, family history, municipal records, legal proceedings and recollection of the elderly - not available in usual sources and history books.

Look forward to Sangeet Chakra's Classical Music Conference during 3rd week of January' 2006, the oldest classical music conference of its kind attended by such greats of Hindustani classical music as - Ustad Allauddin Khan, Pandit Ravi Shankar, Nikhil Banerjee, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Uday Shankar, Bismillah Khan etc.

On 26th January the gala 3-mile road race will be organized by YMA - for 55th year !
