Khajuri Thana, Medinipur is an ancient town of Bengal. Although the current form of this thana is surrounded by India's national river-Hooghly Bhagirathi in the east, and Rasalpur river in the south-west, the road started with the two islands of Hijli and Khejuri. A long time ago. Many waters have flowed through Rasalpur-Bhagirathi, witnessing its evolution. Our thana was born from the fusion of two islands. Tradition-culture and dignity have been glorified in many ways— from time to time.
On January 28, 1765, Mirza Sheikh Itisamuddin set out from Hijli Ghat as a representative of Emperor Shah Alam. Again on November 20, 1830, Raja Rammohan Roy, as the first Bengali, set sail for the first time from Khajuri port. Then, in the social and political spheres, Dwarkanath Tagore, Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Khudiram Bose, Birendranath Shasmal, Acharya Prafullachandra Roy, Vinova Bhave, Mukundaram Chakraborty, Manik Bandyopadhyay, Jyoti Basu etc. have been blessed by the palm trees. India's first post office was built in this palm tree. Similarly, the ancient importance of Khejuri and Hijli ports as a center of trade with outer Bengal makes us proud.
In the constitution of independent India Dr. B.R. One of the members of the Constitution Committee which was formed under the leadership of Ambedkar was Susanthan Basantakumar Das of our Khejuri. Asia's largest fishing port Petuaghat and Hijli Masnad-e-Ala as a Hindu Muslim pilgrimage site are built on the outskirts of this date palm. Which has greatly enriched our tourism economy — and continues to do so. I have tried to cover many known and unknown issues in this book. Although some things are too much for many people, this is an attempt to inform the next generation of new things. It is not unusual to connect all subjects but leave some subjects out. I believe that there will be an opportunity to add or correct it later.
