I am thankful to Suraj Nowlakha S/O Shree Vimal Nowlakha, Azimganj for extending his support। He is the first one to provide some mail adresses and a photograph of a portion of present Bari Kothi that I am adding in the site for public View.

About Bari Kothi:Rai Budh Singh Bahadur Dudhoria has founded this house known as Bari Kothi. Navakumar Singh and Jaikumar Singh Dudhoria were their successors followed by Vimal Kumar Singh and Abhoy Kumar Singh Dudhoria. Vimal Kumar singh Dudhoria has breathed his last in Dec. 08. Pradip Kumar (Now in Jaipur) and Sudip Kumar (Kolkata) S/o Vimal Kumar Singh Dudhoria are now the owners of Bari Kothi.
Rai Budh Singh Dudhoria has erected temple and Dharamshala in Teertha Pawapuri and founded schools in Azimganj those are still running.
1. RBSB Primary School
2. RBSB High School
( I, myself, with many other from the Shaharwali society, was the student of both these schools.)
Rai Budh Singh had love for art, craft, gemstones and Jewelry. He patronized artists and collected some wonderful pieces in Gemstones such as emerald, ruby, diamond etc and Kundan Jadau Jewelry.
