Despite the fact that Bengalis have turned up everywhere in the world, we continue to homesick. From searching for a decent Kolkata-style Kathi roll to visiting pandals during Pujo season (if we can’t make it home), Bengalis are obsessed with their culture.
And if you’re a Bengali stuck in any other part of the country or world, this new video by West Bengal tourism will take you home. The video shows a foreigner do typical Bong things like visiting a classic Bengali wedding or taking the traditional yellow taxi or even riff through books on College Street.
The video paints Bengal as a beautiful destination showcasing all things Bengal beholds. The video showcases the locations in Bengal from the Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal, from the forests to the bylanes. There is Rabindrasangeet playing in the background and the visitor digging into bhetki maacher paturi. Toy Train in Darjeeling, a trip to the Puja house and ends with a major whammy with Bengal’s adopted son Shah Rukh Khan riding a Tram.
Check out the amazing video below and if you’re Bengali, you will probably rush to book your tickets home right now.
While some purists will probably cry about SRK’s presence in said video, if Amitabh can represent Gujarat, there’s nothing wrong with Shah Rukh selling Bengal.
