●☸️|| Gaudeshwar Paramasaugata Madhusen - the King of Bengal who crushed Turks of Bihar and restored Nalanda and Buddhagaya (1278)||☸️●

In 1193, the Nālandā Viśhwavidyālaẏa and Baud'dhabihāra were annihilated by the Turk barbarian Bakhtiyar Khilji; this occasion is seen by researchers as a late achievement in the decay of Buddhism in India.

The Persian student of history Minhaj-I-Siraj, in his account the Tabaquat-I-Nasiri (طبقات نصیری), revealed that a huge number of priests were burned alive and thousands beheaded as Khilji made an honest effort to evacuate Buddhism by the blade;

the consuming of the library proceeded for quite some time and smoke from the consuming original copies hung for a really long time like a dim pall over the low slopes. This finished in all-out decrease by 1197 CE."

In the second half of the 13th century, Bengal was managed by the Sena administration with Bikrampur as its capital. Maharaja Narayan Sen was prevailed by his powerful child Paramasaugata Madhusen who climbed the lofty position of Bengal.

He was an enthusiast of Bud'dha Tathāgata and held the title of 'Paramsaugata' (পরমসৌগত/परमसौगत).

●☸️ Conquest of Lakhnauty (1272 AD) :

In 1268 after the demise of Tatar Khan, the Sultan of Delhi Ghiyasuddin Balban commissioned Sher Khan (شير خان) to fill in as the Governor of Lakhnauty.

Sher Khan managed unobtrusively for a very long time as he got little assets and power from Delhi. Consequently, Bengal stayed in the possession of the Sena line rulers. As of now, Maharaja Madhusen attacked Lakhnauty with an efficient Kaivartya Naval force.

The Gaudiya armed force, situated on the west bank of the Karatoya River, destroyed the Turk armed force with unremitting bolts. Sher Khan was killed in this fight. Paramasaugata Madhusena climbed the high position of Gauda and held the title of "Gaudeshwar".

Raja Gour Govardhan of Srihatta was administering Lakhnauty as his primitive ruler.

A manually written antiquated Sanskrit original copy saved by the Bengal Government expresses that ' "Paramabhaṭṭāraka Mahārājādhirāja Paramasaugata Madhusēna" controlled Gaudavanga at 1272 AD (1194 Shaka).

●☸️ Conquest of Magadha (1278 AD) :

Following the demise of Governor Sher Khan in 1272, Amin Khan Aitigin (امین خان آیتگین) was delegated as the Governor of Oudh and Bihar by Ghiyas Uddin Balban, the leader of the Delhi Sultanate.

Since Bengal had been heavily influenced by the Sena Dynasty for more than 30 years, he stayed a feeble lead representative with minimal expenditure or power.

Exploiting the shortcoming of the Turks in Eastern India, Vaṅgādhipati Madhusēna framed a coalition with Kamaraj Purushottam Singha and Ashoka Challa and walked towards Bihar with a gigantic Dhali infantry.

Amin Khan was crushed in a two-dimensional assault from east and south and escaped to Oudh. The Magadha and Gaya areas were vanquished by Bengal and controlled by medieval lords of the Sena Dynasty around then.

●☸️ Restoration of Buddhagaya and Nalanda Vishwavidyalay :

After an extensive stretch of 85 years, the Sanātanī rule was restored by Gaudeshwar Madhusen in Magadha by removing the Mlēccha Turks.

Paramasaugata Raja Madhusena, an aficionado of Bud'dha Tathāgata, coordinated a Mahāsaṅgha in the Gaya locale, the sacred altar of the Buddhists, to restore Buddhism.

Buddhism was by and large recently settled in the Gaya locale on the drive of his medieval king Kamārāja Puruṣhōttama Singha and Sapādalakṣhapati Aśhōkachalla.

The Nalanda vishwavidyalaya and religious community, obliterated by the Turks, was redesigned and restored by Gaudeshwar Madhusen.

A Buddhist engraving found in the contemporary Gaya locale makes reference to "Lakṣhmaṇasēna Dēvapādānāmatītarājyē (লক্ষ্মণসেন দেবপাদানামতীতরাজ্যে/लक्ष्मणसेन देवपादानमतीतराज्ये), which testifies to the existence of Bengal's Sena rule in Magadha at that time.

//Bikramjit Ghosh of Mangalkote//

Central Bengal, 14th century.

The region got its name from King Bir Singha who opposed Giyasuddin Iwaz Khilji in the mid 13th century.

(1/n) Image
In any case, at whatever point we talk about Birbhum, it's basically impossible that the historical backdrop of Mangalkote can be kept away from.

The ruler of Mangalkote back in the fourteenth century was Bikramjit Ghosh, who keeps on being a venerated name among the Sadgopa people group of Rarh-Bengal.

The date and time couldn't be discovered exactly however it was most certainly in the fourteenth century.

An article on Women's Freedom

This article is for those feminists who simply imagine that women's freedom only implies the freedom to dress! To demonstrate what could be compared to men who simply comprehend the opportunity of sex, inebriated bash.

However as long as women don't comprehend the significance of genuine women's freedom, I think the legitimate headway of ladies in the public arena is preposterous.

We discuss women's liberation in the ascent of Indian culture, however, is it actually obvious to us what ladies' liberation is? Does opportunity mean what is the option to do anything unreservedly?

Introduction to scientific knowledge of our ancestors

Padmanabhaswamy Temple KERALA INDIA as the wealthiest place of worship in the world. It is conservatively estimated that the value of the monumental items is close to ₹1.2 lakh crore or ₹1.2 trillion (US$17 billion)

Every year in the summer equinox, the sun passes through a straight line, passing one of the central gopurams of the temple. The foundation of the present gopuram was laid in 1566.[23] The temple has a 100-foot (30 m),

Think even in present times most people are not aware of equinox and solstice, so how much excellent knowledge, time and equipment must have been coordinated to build such a grand temple in the past.

Ruins of my ancestral house #Tamralipta Rajbari in the ancient city of Tamralipta aka Tamluk.

It is said Draupadi's Swayamvar was organised in this palace.

Lord #Krishna said to Arjun, "My soul can leave every holy place of the world but it can't leave Tamralipta".

Maharaj Tamradhwaja of Mahabharata was the founder of this dynasty.

47th inheritor to the throne was Srimanta Bhuiyan Ray son of Ram Bhuiyan.

Note- Meanwhile some people were saying Lord Ram is not part of our culture 🤣🤣

This also played an important role as the safe house and strategic location for many freedom fighters and famous personalities like Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Rabindranath Tagore, Michael Madhusudan Dutt, Sushil Kumar Dhara, Ajoy Mukherjee.
