THE TEMPLES IN MIDNAPORE

The official wrath at the Swadeshi movement in the Midnapore district was acute. The famous Midnapore Bomb Case where Raja Narendra Lal Khan a very high dignitary of the Raj family of Narajole and Mr.K.B.Dutt a very prominent Barrister of Midnapore were involved by the Police for planting a bomb was proved to be a Police concoction ultimately in the British Courts.  This was one of the earliest Swadeshi cases in Bengal.

The revolutionaries of Bengal counted a lot on the Midnapore district andMidnapore never failed in finding men and money in the bid for freedom either through violent means or through Non-co-operation Movement. WhenGandhiji gave his call and launched the great Non-co-operation Movement this district again came to the forefront. The spirit of independence is an indigenous legacy in this district.

In the pre-British time portions of Midna- pore district were held by Sardar’s who would carve out small dominions of their own. Some of them assumed dignified names and claimed high family lineage, which can seldom be proved. This is exactly what had happened in the other
neighboring districts of Bengal, Bihar and Orissa. Due to the difficult terrain and the jungle warfare method of the indigenous population, it was difficult for any one to become Chatrapati or a Suzerain over a large area.
