Sir Daniel Hamilton Bungalow

Sir Daniel Hamilton bought land of about 9,000 acres in Gosaba in the Sunderbans of Bengal.  His aim was to improve the living conditions of the poverty-stricken people of India.  He introduced a cooperative system in Gosaba and the rest of the Sunderbans promoting a system where people shared responsibility for socio-ecological and economic welfare. His championing of the cooperative society in the Sunderbans was party to the growth of the cooperative movement in India. He lived amongst the people he was trying to help.  He is still a respected figure in these parts of India.
