3:03 pm Peeking into the past: Khana Mihirer Dhibi in Berachampa (Express photo by Partha Paul) Related News Chandraketugarh is a city that never existed The name like so much else about this site and its 2500-year-old history is borrowed from local myths in the absence of actual research Discovered by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) in 1907 it was relegated to be of “no interest” for years Now a century later a museum is being set up by the West Bengal government to showcase Bengal’s “forgotten history” its maritime links to ancient Greece and Rome and the incredible array of terracotta pottery found here Chandraketugarh first came to ASI’s notice in 1907 when local resident Tarak Nath Ghosh urged the government to investigate the area Digging of canals would routinely lead to the discovery of tanks and more canals An ASI official AH Longhurst arrived at the spot in 1907 and reported “the ruins are of little or no interest” It wasn’t until historian Rakhaldas Banerji — the man who discovered the ruins of Mohenjodaro and Harappa — arrived in 1909 and published his impressions in the Bengal monthly Basumati in 1920 The Indian government would then announce a few mounds at the site to be protected under the Ancient Monuments Preservation Act 1956-1967 Extensive excavation work was then carried out at Khana Miherer Dhibi a five-metre high mound at the northeast corner of Berachampa — leading to the discovery of a massive post-Gupta temple complex However since then the historical site has been lying virtually ignored Occasional excavations by the ASI were stopped halfway after 2014 In August 2016 TMC MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar raised the issue in the Parliament and wrote letters to the Centre She said “In a place called Chandraketugarh in Berachampa which is within my constituency of Deganga…The pious Ganges River is supposed to have flown there and that’s why the place is known as Deganga Maritime trade was carried out with Europe 2000 years ago Seals terracotta figurines recovered there are getting lost… Mamata Banerjee had formed the Heritage Commission and excavation had started under the Archaeological Survey of India We were expecting it to become a United Nations heritage site but the excavation has stopped…I draw your notice Madam and through you the Hon’ble Minister of Culture so that this place of heritage should find its place of prominence within our country” Neither Dastidar nor the government have any answers as to why the excavation was stopped halfway Dastidar says “We asked the union government to step in But there was little response Now the chief minister has decided to start a museum for the history of Chandraketugarh which is unique and over 2500 years old The heritage here will help people find the missing links between Bengal and the Indus Valley Civilisation” She added that the space for the museum at the site had been allotted and would open for visitors in two months What makes the museum so urgent officials say was the extent to which the ASI-protected site has been encroached upon Ancient relics including terracotta items dating back to the late Indus valley civilisation have been stolen from the site in the past making their way into the collections of private individuals across the world An artefact from the archaeological collection in Chandraketugarh (Express photo by Partha Paul) “Theft of these items has persisted in spite of police protection in the area due to the absence of a consolidated research space or general public interest In the museum we will get artefacts from Ashutosh Museum and also seek contributions from private collectors Those in possession of these artefacts are also welcome to donate them” says an official Maps with the survey of India reveal no village by the name of Chandraketugarh The name is derived from the mythical Hindu king of the medieval period Chandraketu who had a conflict with saint Syed Abbas Alias or Pir Gorachand A mound at the Berachampa village (Deuliya) off the Barasat-Basirhat Road is called Chandraketur Garh (fort of Chandraketu) which was later compounded as Chandraketugarh Another recent archaeological study being conducted by a team from IIT Kharagpur believes that King Sandrocottus (mentioned by Greek explorer Megasthenes) was not Chandragupta Maurya but Chandraketu whose fort Chandraketugarh is in present-day North 24-Parganas — about 35km from Kolkata Megasthenes visited India in the third century BC after Alexandar’s invasion of India and gives a detailed account of what he saw in Indica He mentions king Sandrocottus as one of the most powerful kings of Gangahriday the Gangetic delta that spread over the five mouths of the river and was a continuum of a landmass comprising Anga Banga and Kalinga Officials say that the museum would also be the starting point to research and excavation into the site previously beleaguered by lack of interest in the historical community and government Even though there are inscriptions on the varied terracotta artefact historians say those are difficult to decode “That Chandraketugarh was a major Indian entrepot of the contemporary Indian Ocean trade has been amply proved by the find of not merely rouletted ware but also antiquities bearing unmistakable Roman influence… My inference is that the potters of Chandraketugarh witnessed Roman statuaries including wreathed male heads and female busts being imported and that they copied some of them in terracotta” said historian DK Chakrabarti in the essay

2-year ban on certain pesticides in a bid to protect bee health The move follows reports earlier this month from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) that three pesticides routinely used by farmers pose an "acute risk" to essential honey bees The commission wants to ban the use of three "neonicotinoid" compounds—clothianidin imidacloprid and thiamethoxam—for 2 years on four crops that are attractive to bees: maize cotton sunflower and rapeseed Maize seeds planted in 2013 would be exempted "We’d be giving member states 2 years to see if [the ban] works and then we’ll see if European legislation needs to be reviewed" a spokesman for health commissioner Tonio Borg told reporters today But this period may be "a bit short" to observe a decrease in bee toxicity says Antonio Gómez Pajuelo a biologist and owner of beekeeping consulting company Consultores Apícolas in Castellón Spain Because neonicotinoids persist in the soil for 2 years a ban of the same length may appear to have no beneficial effect on bee populations Gómez says Toxicity could indeed decrease after 3 or 4 neonicotinoid-free years he adds The ball is now in the court of the European Union’s member states The Dutch government put the topic on the agenda of a meeting of agriculture ministers on 28 January in Brussels arguing that the European Union should take harmonized action following EFSA’s findings instead of each country acting on their own France Germany and Italy have already restricted certain neonicotinoid uses whereas Slovenia has banned them completely But four governments sounded a note of caution at the Brussels meeting a source close to the European Union’s Council of Ministers says Spain and Denmark said EFSA’s analysis should be deepened and broadened while officials from the United Kingdom said that they were awaiting the results of field studies in their territory Hungary added that beyond studying the effects of the pesticides themselves researchers needed to look at the methods used to apply them to the crops Meanwhile the pesticides’ makers—Syngenta in Basel Switzerland and Bayer CropScience in Monheim Germany—are defending their products The commission’s proposals are "hardly proportionate or practical" a Syngenta spokesman tells ScienceInsider "We believe that a large number of member states agree and recognize that a restriction would be a significant loss to farmers and the economy" He added that banning neonicotinoids would not protect bee populations "that are primarily under threat from diseases and poor nutrition" The commission says it hopes to have the ban in place by 1 July But governments first must vote on the proposal through a Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health (SCFCAH) Made up of 345 technical experts from the European Union’s 27 member states SCFCAH monitors the implementation of EU laws related to food safety and animal welfare If a minority of countries blocks the SCFCAH vote the matter
