Born into the Ramoshi-Berad community in Maharashtra, Umaji Naik drew inspiration from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and established a short-lived kingdom, fighting against the British occupation. Despite facing numerous challenges and British attempts to capture him, Umaji Naik remained defiant and continued his struggle for self-rule. Eventually, he was apprehended, sentenced to death, and executed. However, Umaji Naik's courageous contributions have often been overlooked in the broader narrative of Indian history. This article sheds light on Umaji Naik's life and legacy, emphasizing the heroism and sacrifices made by forgotten revolutionaries who fought for India's independence before the widespread uprising of 1857. The Ramoshi/Berad community has preserved his memory and recognized his contributions. Umaji Naik's triumph over the British and the establishment of his small kingdom serve as remarkable achievements in an era of British suppression. Unfortunately, the story of this brave revolutionary, like many others, has been lost and forgotten over time. It reminds us that there are countless untold stories of India's courageous sons and daughters, waiting to be discovered and celebrated in the depths of history.</em></p> Dr. Dhanraj Sardar Gusinge Copyright (c) 2023 The Yore: Research and Review Sat, 29 Jul 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Agrarian Basis of the Political Transformation in West Bengal C. 1947-1977 <p><em>West Bengal experienced a multifaceted metamorphosis from 1947 to 1977, significantly influencing the state's political landscape. This transformation was intricately tied to the agrarian sector, where agricultural and land reforms were crucial. The post-independence period marked the beginning of land reforms in West Bengal. Agrarian unrest, aggravated by extreme land inequality and oppressive zamindari systems, led to the establishment of a Communist-led coalition government in 1977. This paper demonstrates that the agrarian basis of the political transformation in West Bengal from 1947 to 1977 was instrumental in shaping the state's political trajectory. The shift from agrarian inequalities to agrarian reforms catalyzed a dramatic modification in the state's political landscape, ultimately shaping its socio-economic fabric and ideological outlook. Understanding this agrarian underpinning is essential for understanding the complex political history of West Bengal during this vital era. This paper highlights the role of West Bengal as a representative case study due to its demographic and historical relevance. The work also explores the dynamics of agrarian transformation, resource utilization, and the socio-economic structure in the post-independence years, particularly within the context of West Bengal. This case study will shed light on the interplay between political parties, land reforms, and refugee rehabilitation efforts, ultimately shaping the state's political course and the lives of its citizens. </em></p> Mr. Tanmoy Mondal Copyright (c) 2023 The Yore: Research and Review Fri, 27 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0000 The Movement for Khulna University: A Qualitative Exploration of its Historical Establishment <p><em>Khulna University is one of the familiar leading public universities in Bangladesh in the field of research and education. But this university had a struggling established historical background. Despite being developed from many dimensions, there was no university in Khulna before 1991. So, the people of Khulna went for a movement to establish a university in Khulna. Although a recommendation for a university in the Khulna Division was brought in the first Education Commission Report of Bangladesh submitted in 1974, the issue was beyond implementation for a few years. So, Khulna became the centre city of the struggle for a University in South-West Bangla. Students of various institutions and people belonging to different professions marched to the town to establish a university. Consequently, the government was convinced to take steps for establishing a university for the greater Khulna region. Two committees were made for justifying the academic and location purposes for a new university in Khulna. The experiments of the committees and reports submitted paved the way for establishing Khulna University. The data of this study has been developed through qualitative research. The main objective of this assertion is to discover the nature of the movement behind this institution and its result.</em></p> Md.
