28 August 1949 Merger of Historic Cooch Behar Princely State

The Cooch Behar Nation which had merged with the Indian territory on 28th of August 1949 and later on it was divided into various parts, where by the eastern part of the State merged with the Present Assam and the Western part of the State is being merged with the present West Bengal and few of the parts went with Meghalaya, Bihar, Bangladesh and Nepal.

Koch Rajbongshi became landless in their own land as their homeland had been merged with other states, of Assam and Westbengal.

The Koch Rajbongshi does not have any states to call now of their own as their rights are being auctioned.
Tamilians have Tamilnadu, Kannadigas have Karnataka, Punjabis have Punjab,  Kashmiris have Kashmir, Bengalis have Bengal, Malayalis have Kerala, but when it comes Koch Rajbongshi inspite of the fact that this tribe had their own Nation, now does not have any State of their own to call as their own.

It is a great sin in the history of mankind where by this ancient tribe are still waiting for their justification. Where is Humanity?
Leave about their rights of Tribal Hood, still after 69 Years of Independence of India, this tribe are still fighting democratically for their language recognition under 8th schedule, their Tribal Hood Recognition and their State Hood Demand.

The entire World is Looking at this Discrimination: Inspite of having their own Language they need to enroll themselves in a foreign language to continue their studies, Why discrimination? What will happen to our Mother Tongue? We are not asking Stars from the Sky, we are just asking for the recognition of our language and tribal hood status, what you will loose if we develop? Where is Humanity?

Some one rightly said, a time will come where there will not remain any Humanity! This is the great example of Discrimination and inhumanness.

Koch Rajbongshi Tribal of Asia
Koch Rajbongshi Tribe are densely found in their historic country namely Cooch Behar Princely State, Kamata Kingdom, Koch Kingdom, and so on.
The Cooch Behar Nation which had merged with the Indian territory on 28th of August 1949 and later on it was divided into various parts, where by the eastern part of the State merged with the Present Assam and the Western part of the State is being merged with the present West Bengal and few of the parts went with Meghalaya, Bihar, Bangladesh and Nepal.


The Patriotic Koch Rajbongsgi Youth of India are born to protect the Integrity of the India our Motherland but The Traitor and Anti National Elements are not happy about it, The Anti National Element are trying to blame the community because it wanted to serve the nation by learning the skills sets required to Join in Various Defense.
It is a Strategic Plan by corrupt parties to insult and humiliate the entire community and youth so that they leave their dream to serve our country India.
Remove corruption and such corrupt political parties who are against the development of the Youth of India, specifically those who are targeting the Patriotic Koch Rajbongshi Youth.

Koch Rajbongshi Tribe is one of the Indeginious Tribe Living for Centuries in the Geography of Ancient Kamarupa Kingdom and Ancient Pragjyotishpur.
The Anti Social Element which are present in our peace loving Society are constantly and deliberately trying to misrepresent the Tribe and are trying to Alter History, and even trying to bring differences within the community only to destabilize the peace society.
The community need to use their head and brains to understand what is right, what is ethical and what is just and unjust.
If you don't understand the Strategic Tricks it will be too late to understand and we community as a whole will become foreigner in our own land.
India is a Great Nation, Explore our Nation it belongs to all.

In the World History 28 August is one of the most Important Dates.
On this date in the year 1949 AD.
The Historic Koch Behar Nation of the Koch Rajbongshi Tribe was merged with the Dominion of the Republic of India, there by the The Citizens of the Koch Behar Nation became the citizens of India.
But still Koch Rajbongshi Tribe is waiting for the justification which was agreed upon between Gov of India and Koch Rajbongshi Rulers of the Koch Behar Nation to form a separate homeland for this Tribe to protect the community.
The Historic Koch Behar Nation comprises of Entire North Bengal, Lower Assam, Parts of Bihar, Meghalaya, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Nepal makes the homeland of This Tribe.

nsulting the Historic Narayani Sena of Koch Kingdom can be termed as Conspiracy and derogatory and Intentional Insult and Propaganda to defame a Tribe associated with Koch Rajbongshi Aborigin.
Learn the History before vomiting your poison. We live in a civilized society and not of Third class minded society, further we don't give respect to any corrupt political parties.
---------
Little Truth and History Below for Empty Head People. Who are trying to speak against us intentionally with their full concise.
The citizens of India have the full rights to protect its geography from the foreign invasion, The duty of every citizens is to protect the integrity of Our Mother Land India. Koch Rajbongshi Ethnic Tribe feel proud in protecting its mother land India.
The Fundamental Duties Art. 51A, Part IVA of the Indian Constitution, specifies that : 3. to uphold and protect the sovereignty, unity and integrity of India; and Koch Rajbongshi Tribe are trying to do that;
4. to defend the country and render national service when called upon to do so; ( Koch Rajbongshi Tribe are ready to serve the nation and protect the border area at any point of time and protect against the foreign invasion) ;
About the Narayani Sena:
In connection with the certain points including status of the Armed Forces of Cooch Behar raised by the Maharaja relating to the just concluded Merger Agreement, by giving due consideration, on behalf of the Govt. of India, V.P. Menon in his D.O. letter No.F.15(19)-P/49 dated the 30th August, 1949 to the Maharaja, clarified queries on 14 points. As clarification given in the 14th point, it was mentioned as – (14) Government will endeavour to associate the name “Narayan” with the Cooch Behar State Forces even after their absorption in the Indian Army.
On the historic day of merger of Cooch Behar State with India, then Hon’ble Home Minister, Vallabbhai Patel sent greetings and assurances to the people of Cooch Behar which is evident as per his letter to then Chief Commissioner of Cooch Behar Sri Nanjappa which was as under:
"From Minister, Home Camp, Birla House, Malabar Hill, Bombay
11 September 1949
Historical background of Koch Army of Cooch Behar Empire comprising of mainly Koch-Rajbanshi people has been a glorious one. As per ‘Akbarnama’, during the reign of great Koch king Nara Narayan(1553-1587 A.D.) aided by his warrior brother and a great military commander, Chilarai, Koch army consisted of 4000 horses, 2,00,000 infantry soldiers, 700 elephants and 1000 war boats. As per Sir E.A. Gaits, the British administrator and a great historian, there were around 52,25,000 able Koch-Rajbanshi youth volunteers to serve the Koch army. Because of the heroic deeds of the soldiers under able command of Chilarai, the Koch kingdom could defeat all north-eastern oriental kingdoms and unified whole of the Northeast. Undoubtedly, credit of uniting North-eastern India must go to the Koch army, who were famously known as ‘Narayani Sena’.
From the days of merger in 1949, the fate of 'Narayani Company' in the Rajshahi Regiment of Cooch Behar State remained in obscurity due to indifference on the part of the Government of India. The assurances given by the Government during merger are yet to be fulfilled and raising of a Rajbanshi Regiment is one of them. Today, although a young Rajbanshi is free to join any Regiment in Indian Army but it does not give him the honour of being a Rajbanshi of a marshal class. To honour the sacrifices made by the Koch-Rajbanshi people for centuries in fighting adversaries and uniting entire North-eastern India with mainland India during sixteenth century, raising such a Infantry Regiment named ‘Narayani Regiment’ in the Infantry Army is more apt. Raising such a regiment in Indian Army is not going to negate any national policy of India as Infantry Regiments of Indian Army such as Punjab Regiment, Maratha Light Infantry, Jat Regiment, Mahar Regiment, Madras Regiment, Sikh Regiment, Sikh Light Infantry, Gorkha Regiments etc. of Indian Army are doing exceptionally well for ages.
Under the safe hands of Koch-Rajbanshi soldiers of Cooch Behar Empire remained safe from foreign aggression for centuries. Even most powerful Mughal forces were forced to become ally with Cooch Behar kingdom. The British power acknowledged sovereignty of Cooch Behar as a princely State. It is the fit case to honour the Koch/Rajbanshis by raising ‘Narayani Regiment’ as assured by then 1st Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister of India, Vallabhbhai Patel during merger of Cooch Behar State with India in 1949.
Narayani Sena want to be a part of the Indian Army to serve our mother land India.
We also understand that Traitors of our Nation never Likes the Patriotic Citizens of our Beloved Motherland India, Koch Rajbongshi Tribe are one of the Indigenous Patriotic Citizens of India.

Destroying history is now confirmed as a war crime.
Many of our historical buildings at cooch Behar have been destroyed by officials.
The Gov and International Community should take action against those corrupt officials and corrupt political parties who are secretly involved in destroying our History.

Koch royals meet Dass

Koch royals meet Dass
A STAFF REPORTER
Guwahati, July 25: A delegation of the Koch royal families today submitted details of their organisations and families in Bangladesh to Assam Speaker Ranjeet Kumar Dass ahead of his visit to the neighbouring country.

Dass will visit Bangladesh in September to attend the 10-day 62nd Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference in Dhaka.

"Today, we met Dass and submitted him details of Koch families and organisations in Bangladesh. He said he would take up the issue with the Indian High Commission so that he can meet those people there," Pranab Narayan Dev, the secretary of Consortium of Koch Royal Families, said.

Dass had recently told the community in Barpeta district that he would meet Koch organisations and delegations in Bangladesh to know about their problems.

Dass's assurance had come following the consortium's stand in favour of the Centre's move to grant citizenship to Hindu refugees from Bangladesh. According to the consortium, 19 lakh Koch Rajbongshi people live in Bangladesh and many of them have been facing various kinds of atrocities.

The delegation also appraised Dass on issues like eligibility of the Koch Rajbongshi community for ST status and the condition of the community living in the BTAD.

"The Koch Rajbongshis are geographically isolated, shy of contact with community at large, economically backward and have a distinctive culture. They have a language, a composite behaviour pattern, traditional dress, food habit, folk song, dances, specific rituals, festivities and rituals," a memorandum submitted to Dass said.

The delegation told Dass that despite having the required criteria for ST, the community is regarded as SC in Bengal, OBC in Bihar and OBC and MOBC in Assam.

"We are hopeful that the Speaker will do the needful in support of the community's demand for ST status," said Dev.
