Nomoskar, dear people. I know, that many people do make fun of Bengali’s and their habits. I personally believe that Bengali is a very sweet language and yes, I am proud to be a bong. Every religion has its own belief and customs. So let’s behave like bhodroloks and stop stereotyping. Yes, Durga Puja drives us crazy and better you don’t piss Maa Durga off. ‘Dugga! Dugga!’ Bengali people do feel proud wearing those monkey tupi, dhuti- panjami and yes carrying those jhola’s. There are lots of annoying comments that do irritate Bengali’s a lot.
Whenever someone comes to know that you are a bengali, they literally shout and be like " Ami tomake bhalobashi, tumi basho?"
"NO! I DON'T LOVE YOU. IT HAS JUST BEEN 2 SECONDS, SINCE I MET YOU." "WHY AM I EVEN SUPPOSED TO DO THAT?"
Personally, I don't understand why do people ask us to sing rabindra-sangeet for them. " Man! search for a rabindra-sangeet on google and listen to it." "Why will I sing for you?" Half of them don't even understand a single word but are always ready for "AMI JE TOMAR, CHIN CHIN CHIN." That's not even a rabindra-sangeet.
"I DIDN'T OFFER YOU ANY, THEN WHY ARE YOU SO CONCERNED?"
Bengalis love eating fish and yes, it doesn't do 'gulu-gulu' when in stomach. Infact, fish has a lot of protein in it. So, " macher-jhol bhatt" is actually better than any of those ' rajma and chola.'
