North 24 Parganas extends in the tropical zone from latitude 22º11'6" north to 23º15'2" north and from longitude 88º20' east to 89º5' east.

Barasat is the district headquarters of North 24 Parganas. Maharaja Pratapaditya, a Bhuian king (one of the 12 feudal lords of Bengal who declared their sovereignty from the Mughal Empire) of Jessore, Khulna, Barisal and Greater 24 Parganas, fought and resisted the Portuguese in the early years of the 17th Century. When he was defeated by the Mughals, Lakshmikanta Majumdar of Barisha, a sub-ordinate of the king, won the favor of fortune. While establishing the famous Kali Temple at Kalighat, Majumdar got some help from Raja Basanta Roy, Pratapaditya (Maharaja Pratapaditya)'s uncle who was later killed by his ever-suspicious nephew. Yet Majumdar played for Abdul Rahman Khan, the Mughal Subbadar (governor of Mughal provinces). Pratapaditya (Maharaja Pratapaditya) lost the battles of Salka and Magrahat and was captured by the Mughal. Later he died in prison on the way to Delhi. Majumdar was reworded the zamindari of Magura, Paikan, Anwarpur and Kalikata for his treason against his own sovereign from Jahangir in 1611. Later his grandson was bestowed the Zamindari of Khulna and Greater 24 Parganas (partially) by Murshid Quli Khan, the Nawab of Bengal. Once the capital of Raja Bikramaditya and Maharaja Pratapaditya was at Dhumghat. Later it was transferred to Ishwaripur (originated from the name Jeshoreshwaripur). Maharaja Pratapaditya declared independence of South Bengal (Jessore, Khulna in north, Sundarbans, Bay of Bengal in South, Barisal in east and River Ganges in west) against the Mughal Empire of India. In 1793, during the rule of Lord Cornwallis, entire Sunderbans were in Twentyfour Parganas. In 1802, some parganas on the western banks of river Hoogly were included into it. These parganas were in Nadia (Nadia district) earlier. In 1814, a separate collectorate was established in Twenty-four Parganas. In 1817, Falta and Baranagar and in 1820, some potions of Nadia’s Balanda and Anwarpur were encompassed to it. In 1824, portions of Barasat, Khulna and Bakhargunge (now in Bangladesh) were also included to it. In 1824, the district Headquarter was shifted from Kolkata to Baruipur, but in 1828, it was removed to Alipore. In 1834, the district was split into two districts – Alipore and Barasat, but later these were united again. * '''''Jat Area''''' (Brahmaputra Alluvium): This comprises part of the districts of Dhaka, Mymensingh, Tangail, and Comilla of Bangladesh.

Brief history The construction of a railway Bridge over the Padma was proposed by the Eastern Bengal Railway in 1889 for easier communication between Calcutta and the then Eastern Bengal and Assam and discussed for more than twenty years before it was finally sanctioned for construction in 1908. In 1902, Sir FJE Spring prepared a detailed project on the bridge. A technical committee appointed in 1908 reported that a bridge could be constructed at Sara crossing the lower Ganges between Paksey and Bheramara Upazila stations on the broad gauge railway from Khulna to Parbatipur Upazila. The construction of the bridge started in 1910 and finished in 1912. British engineer Sir Robert Gailes worked as the chief engineer of the construction. On 1 January 1915, the first trial train crossed the bridge down track and on 25 February of the same year the second trial train crossed the bridge up track. Finally on 4 March 1915 Lord Hardinge inaugurated the bridge. A total of 24,000 people were employed for constructing the bridge. yearofbirth 1979 placeofbirth Khulna, Khulna District countryofbirth Bangladesh DATE OF BIRTH 7 November 1979 PLACE OF BIRTH Khulna, Khulna District, Bangladesh DATE OF DEATH '''Mohammad Salim''' (born October 15, 1981, Khulna) is a Bangladeshi cricketer who played in 2 Tests (Test cricket) and one ODI (One Day International) in 2003.

His prior release from the Howrah Trial and informed him about a forthcoming World War (First World War). During this time, Jatindranath Mukherjee or Bagha Jatin had suspended all violent activity, preparing for an armed insurrection all over India. ''Nixon's Report'' in Samanta, Vol.II, p591 ''agniyug o biplabi bhupendrakumar datta'' by Samyukta Mitra, Sahitya Samsad, 1995, pp38-39.) Discouraged at the suspension of all revolutionary activities, Sachin went to the Dhaka Anushilan Samiti (Anushilan Samiti#Dhaka Anushilan Samiti) whose leaders did not participate in Bagha Jatin's programme. Led by a faint clue in 1913, Bhupen decided to go to Khulna and join the Daulatpur Hindu Academy. Encouraged by the liberal spirit reigning in the campus, Bhupen brought together his own group of college-mates interested in social work, raising funds for the poor by offering manual labour, gymnastics, study sessions for the ''Gita'' and essays of contemporary thinkers. They founded their own hostel. Several professors of the college and the superintendent himself, like for example Shashibhushan Raychaudhury (or more commonly known by his nickname) '''Shashida''', who was more famous for his experiments in education, and had been closely associated with Bagha Jatin, used to visit the College. After returning to Daulatpur, Bhupen learnt from his college mate Gopaldas Majumdar that Bagha Jatin was soon leaving his business as a contractor in order to go back to Kolkata. ''smaran-baran'', 1981, pp38-41 After a significant farewell visit to Bhupen, Jatin sent a horse to Dr Amulya Ukil of the campus, apparently for the latter's use; thanks to this gift, Bhupen and the other boys took lessons in riding. Samyukta, pp68-69 Assisted by Bhupen, Dr Ukil in earnest discipline took to training the students in military drill, semaphore (Flag semaphore) signaling, arms collection, propaganda among military police and the fluvial workers of Khulna-Jessore regions. On visit to Daulatpur, Subhash Chandra Bose and Hemanta Kumar Sarkar were so impressed by this pageant that during the Kolkata session of the National Congress, in 1928, when Bose organised the Bengal Volunteers in a fully military style, he was happy to have Bhupen by his side. Samyukta, p69 ''Bhupendra Kumar Datta'' in Dictionary of National Biography, Vol.I, p383 On visiting India after forty-two years, Dr. Taraknath Das reminded in his tribute to Bagha Jatin : "In Jatinda’s method of working there was a military discipline (…) Throughout the country, inspired by Jatinda’s ideology, one has to create an organisation similar to the military model. That alone will be an adequate homage to Jatinda." ''Anandabazar Patrika'', 10 September 1952.) Radio Foorti 88.0 FM, Radio Foorti is a Bangladeshi FM radio station.

An initial plan, given to the Eastern Command by General Manekshaw, involved a brief incursion into East Pakistan and the capture of two provinces, Chittagong and Khulna. Senior Indian Army officers were reluctant to execute an aggressive invasion for fears of early ceasefire demands by the United Nations and a looming threat posed by China. That, together with the difficulty of navigating the marshy terrain of East Pakistan through three wide rivers, led the commanders to initially believe that the capture of all of East Pakistan was inconceivable. Jacob, however, disagreed and favored his "war of movement" plan which aimed to take control of all of East Pakistan. Jacob felt that the capital city of Dhaka, located deep in East Pakistan, was the geopolitical center of the region and therefore any successful campaign had to involve incursions deep into East Pakistan and the eventual capture of Dhaka. He realized that any campaign had to be successful and swift as the United Nations would press for a ceasefire which would be advantageous to Pakistan and India's ally, the Soviet Union, may not be interested in exercising a veto indefinitely. He realized that the Pakistani Army commander, Gen. Niazi, was going to fortify the towns and "defend them in strength". His plan was to bypass intermediary towns altogether, neutralize Pakistan's command and communication infrastructure and using secondary routes get to Dhaka directly. Jacob's plan was eventually approved by the Eastern Command. Ruling area During his reign, Khan Jahan Ali conquered Khulna and Jessore. According to a numismatic evidence, Nasiruddin Mahmud ruled over a vast kingdom bounded by the districts of Bhagalpur to the west, Mymensingh and Sylhet to the east, Gaur and Pandua to the north and Hughli (Hooghly (town)) to the south. * Expansion needed (updated by bot) ** 34 - Aishiya, Batikent, Blenheim, New Zealand, Bogra District, Brzeziny (Gmina of Lubartów), Casablanca, Chlewiska, Dakhiliyah, Drzewianowo, Enmore, Guyana, Guarenas, Guatire, Kaikoura, Kasindol, Khulna, La Rogivue, List of China provinces by compass, List of cities and towns in Hong Kong, Lisów, Lusignan, Guyana, Maracaibo, Maymand, Nobres, Panauti, Patras, Porlamar, Port Vila, Riffa, Szczekarków, Tórshavn, Wola Mieczysławska, Yerevan, Łucka, Łucka Kolonia * Expert attention needed (updated by bot) * Expansion needed (updated by bot) ** 235 - 1979 in India, 2005 Men's Champions Trophy (field hockey), Abahani Krira Chakra, Alaol, Apodization, Bagerhat District, Bangalore IT.COM, Bangladesh Army, Bangladesh Betar, Bangladesh Military Academy, Bangladesh Rifles, Banning of Tamil language media importation, Barguna District, Bhola District, Bogra District, Brahmanbaria District, Brajalal College, Brajamohan College, Brojen Das, Caste system in Kerala, Centre for Railway Information Systems, Chand Raat, Chandpur District, Chittagong District, Chittranjan Locomotive Works, Constitution of Bangladesh, Constitution of Sri Lanka, Cuisine of Kashmir, Culture of Bangladesh, Dasa sil mata, Dhaka District, Dinajpur District, Bangladesh, DishTV, Dish TV India, Education in Bangladesh, Elaan, Elections in Bangladesh, Elections in India, Embroidery of India, Exim Bank (India), Fall of Sassanids, Faridpur District, Filmfare Awards, Folklore of India, Gaibandha District, Gazipur District, Goan houses, Goan literature, Godavari
