Shrinking 'Bangalir Gorbo'! Are you game for a big Bong debate to salvage the lost Bengali pride?

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

How did Justice VR Krishna Iyer go from communist to Modi fan?

Not that he is expressing his adulation for Modi for the first time, but nullifying everything that he stood for in terms of civil and human rights is hugely disappointing. #Politics #India #BJP #Narendra Modi #InMyOpinion #Solar power #LK Advani #Gujarat Riots #Amitav Ghosh #VR Krishna Iyer
