Why Uttarpara.com ?

  • 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 unbiased 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
