ndia is strategically located in southern Asia, bordering Pakistan, Afghanistan, China, Nepal, and Bhutan on the north; Bangladesh, Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), and the Bay of Bengal on the east; the Palk Strait and the Gulf of Mannar and the Indian Ocean on the south; and the Arabian Sea and Pakistan on the west.

New Delhi is the capital of India and is one of the largest cities. India believes in 'spiritual integrity' and 'unity in diversity'. The secular nature of India has attracted philosophers and researchers from across the globe to explore India. Peace, prosperity and religious tolerance are other integral parts of India’s composite culture. India is also the land of the Vedas - the oldest scriptures in the world. It is divided in four-volumes and is regarded as the storehouse of national thoughts. India’s love for complex art forms is evident in the various religious and mythological references.

Today, India is the world’s seventh largest country in terms of area and second in terms of population. The sights, sounds, the ancient temples and the lush paddy fields make the country unique and amazing. It has 22 major languages with 844 dialects, making this country and its people culturally diverse.

WEST BENGAL PROFILE

West Bengal district map.jpgWest Bengal, a state in eastern India, stretches from the Himalayas in the north to the Bay of Bengal in the south. It was on 1st May 1960 when West Bengal was given the status of a separate state in the Indian union, purely on linguistic basis.

The state has been subjected to a variety of influences from diverse cultures. Since time immemorial, the culmination of these varied cultures along with Bengal's very own ever-growing richness has given birth to a unique Bengali culture.


It is a land of varied charms. Right from the mighty Himalayas in the north to the sea-caressed beaches in the south, it is a wonderful journey over the verdant plains, hilly terrains, forests and the wonderful mangrove forests like the Sunderbans.

 

West Bengal is a prosperous state with more than two third of the population depending on agriculture. The people believe in “simple living and high thinking” policy. The state has been ruled by the left Front for the past 30 years making it a democratically elected communist government. In the more recent time, there is tremendous reformation going on at various sectors viz. economy, education, transport and tourism.

West Bengal happens to be the fourth most thickly settled statein India216-1.jpg and possesses a very varied landscape which is a rare sight for any other state in India. West Bengal owns a rich historyand is renowned for more than one reason. Many brave freedom fighters such as Khudiram Bose and Netaji were born on this land and not only brave men but also intellectual gems like Rabindranath Tagore, Amartya Sen, Ishwarchand Vidyasagar and Bankim Chatterjee took birth in West Bengal. The list of famous names with West Bengal as their birth placeis truly endless and this Indian state owns a glorious history and a very rich culture.

images.jpgWest Bengal is a perfect blend of festivals and rich traditions which can be enjoyed all year round. This state has renowned educational institutions and the University of Calcutta happens to be the most former public university in the country. Other than high level education West Bengal is also known for its love for dance and music. The people of this state are very much fond of Nazrul Geeti, Rabindra Sangeet and Rabindra Nritya Natya. West Bengal can be associated by a lot of famous personalities from different areas of expertise and one name that cannot be missed is Satyajit Ray who is world renowned as an excellent film maker.

netaji_subhash_chandra_bose_jayanti_by_ranjitsahu-d5sbs0j.jpgWhen it comes to tourism then West Bengal is a popular tourist destination and has a lot of worth seeing places. Darjeeling, Belur Math, Shanti Niketan and Sunderbans are some of the noteworthy tourist points in West Bengal. West Bengal happens to be a land where unity lies in diversity. Kanchenjunga decorates the top portion of the state while the Bay of Bengal flows at the bottom and the river Ganga flows through the heart of the state.
