History

After the first War of Indian Independence (1857), the Janghu Jats from Bhaloth village in the disstrict Jhunjhunu first migrated to village Khorara (presently in Jhajhar District) and out of them a few families settled near a mound, presently forming the southern part of the the village agricultural lands. A few families belonging to Sangwan gotra from neighbouring village Atela Kalan lived near a pond (Amrana Johar), near the site of present village in northern side. In the aftermath of the 1857 events the Raja of Jind was assigned the territories previously held by the Nawab of Dadri. Later it began to be called Dadri Tehsil of the Jind District.

The village derives its name from the invitation (Bulana) extended to the people by a ruler to settle at the present site. According to elders of the village especially from Smt. Phushi Devi wife of Chaudhary Dile Ram Janghu, who started to reside here in 1870's the incident is said to have occurred as follows. After a few years (about 1865 or so) for the land settlement of the region, the ruler of the then Native State of Jind is said to have visited this area. On his initiation, the headmen of both the Khordia and Atelia families got together and agreed to settle. . at the present site after the issue of their possession of cultivable land and habitation site had been settled. the same was done by earmarking a dividing line starting from east to west; thus Atelia mohalla or panna on the northern side and Khordia mohalla or Panna came to be settled in south of this area. This division in two parts of the village remains even today.

Jat gotras

In this village, there are two major Jat Gotras: Janghu and Sangwan. They are said to have first settled at this place. The Janghus' ancestors had migrated from Khorara village and are also known as Bhalothia and Khordia in local parlance. The Sangwans came here from neighbouring Atela Kalan and they are called Atelias in the local dialect. On the basis of this, the land of the village both agricultural and residential had been demarked into two parts. the dividing line has been marked from East to West and divides the village in two 'pannas' or Mohallas i.e. Khordias in the Southern part and Atelias in the Northern part. Subsequently a few people belonging to other gotras also settled here in both the pannas/mohallas.
