We Bengalis are a special breed indeed, from the way we quintessentially defile ‘lyadh’ to the pride we take in our culture, there is no denying that we are exceptional in our own ‘Bong’ way. Now understanding a Bengali has never been an easy task. Be it the highest form of art or the lowest level of ‘khishti’ we can effortlessly flip in the blink on an eye, and roast you in the politest, most ‘politically correct’ of ways!
Now there are certain codes behind each Bong interaction. Be it our news channels or how we counter the common cold, there are typical characteristic ways in which we Bengalis react to them and hell yeah, we’re proud of it.
While the rest of the country can find us mysterious for our love for ‘Roshogolla’ or our obsession with ‘Dada’, there’s no denying that we’re one of the most loved ones (read sweetest ones)
