We can critique Gandhi, but not Mother Teresa's sainthood? Free speech anyone?

While the popular call of 'Jago Bangali' may stir some Bengali blood to regain its lost glory, particularly among those staying outside West Bengal, the state per se is only conveniently bothered about the dwindling Bengali ego when it has a bonanza attached to it like an election. #Mamata Banerjee #Amartya Sen #InMyOpinion #Trinamool Congress #Amitav Ghosh #Saurav Ganguly #Kolkata Book Fair #Bengalis #Sairaj Bahutule #F Weekend
