Book 6: Chapter 21 – West Bengal – Paschim Bongo


  1. The word Kolkata derives from the Bengali term, the name of one of three villages that predated the arrival of the British, in the area where the city eventually was to be established; the other two villages were Sutanuti and Govindapur.

  2. The Sundarbans covers approximately 10,000 square kilometres (3,900 sq mi) of which 60 percent is in Bangladesh with the remainder in India. The Sundarbans is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

  3. Bishnupur was ruled under the Gupta period by local Hindu kings who paid tribute to Samudra Gupta. The land is also called Mallabhum after the Malla rulers of this place. It was much later in 994 AD that the place was named Bishnupur. The name is derived from the name of the Hindu God 'Vishnu'.

  4. The District of Murshidabad has an area of 2143 sq. m. It is divided into two nearly equal portions by the Bhagirathi, the ancient channel of the Ganges. In 1704, Murshid Quli Khan, the Diwan of Bengal under Aurangzeb transferred the capital from Dacca (now Dhaka in Bangladesh), and renamed the city Murshidabad after his own name.

  5. The name Kalimpong means Land of Kings. The most widely accepted origin of the name is "Assembly of the King's Ministers" in Tibetan, derived from kalon ("King's ministers") and pong ("Assembly"). It has a flower market notable for its wide array of orchids; nurseries, which export Himalayan grown flower bulbs, tubers and rhizomes, contribute to the economy of Kalimpong.

  6. Darjeeling is the headquarters of Darjeeling district which has a partially autonomous status within the state of West Bengal. It has several British-style public schools, which attract students from India and neighbouring countries.
