Buxi Jagabandhu

(1773 – 1829) – (Odisha)

Buxi Jagabandhu Bidyadhar Mohapatra Bhramarbar Ray (Aged 56) was born in 1773 and was the leader of the historic Paika Revolt of 1847 in Khurda, Odisha, India. He was the landlord of Rodhanga and was appointed as the Senapati by the king of Khurda.

In fact, Buxi and the paiks of Khurda raised their voices against heavy taxation, the illegal encroachment of tax-free lands by the British, and restrictions on salt manufacturing. Additionally, a conspiracy was hatched against Buxi by Krushna Singh, who recorded Buxi’s entire landed property rights under his brother’s name. This led to a revolution, and Buxi became the Sardar of the rebellion. He passed away in 1829.
