West Bengal, a state in eastern  India, stretches from the  Himalayas in the north to the  Bay of Bengal in the south. It was on  1st May 1960 when  West Bengal was given the status of a separate state in the Indian union, purely on linguistic basis.

The state has been subjected to a variety of influences from diverse cultures. Since time immemorial, the culmination of these varied cultures along with  Bengal's very own ever-growing richness has given birth to a unique Bengali culture.

It is a land of varied charms. Right from the mighty  Himalayas in the north to the sea-caressed beaches in the south, it is a wonderful journey over the verdant plains, hilly terrains, forests and the wonderful mangrove forests like the Sunderbans.

West Bengal is a prosperous state with more than two third of the population depending on agriculture. The people believe in 'simple living and high thinking' policy. The state has been ruled by the left Front for the past 30 years making it a democratically elected communist government. In the more recent time, there is tremendous reformation going on at various sectors viz. economy, education, transport and tourism etc.

About the District

South 24 Pargana, also written as 24 Pargana (South) is an administrative district of West Bengal with its headquarters at Alipore. On one side the district forms a conglomeration of the Kolkata city population owing to its close proximity to the city. And on the other it has the remote riverine villages of the Sundarbans.

These estuarine forests of Sunderbans spread over an area of some 9630 sq. kms of which 70% of the area is under saline water making it difficult jobs for honey-catchers, prawn-catchers and fishermen.

Sunderban’s exclusive variety of birds include Heron, Egret, Cormorant, Fishing Engle, White Bellied Sea Eagle, Seagul, Tern, Kingfisher as well as migratory birds like Whimprel, Black-tailed Godwit, Little Stint, Eastern Knot, Curlew, Sandpiper, Golden Plover, Pintail, White-eyed Pochard and also Whistling teal. The aquatic and reptile life forms include Olive Ridley sea turtle, hardshelled Batgur Terrapin, Pythons, King Cobra, Chequered Killback, Monitor and Lizards including the Salvator lizards. Hence Sunderbans can be righteously considered as nature’s own finale of beauty.
