1. The Gender Discrimination
When it comes to non-living things, no, Bengalis do not think if it should be “chalta hain” or “chalti hain” . Come on! How can you decide a car or a bike to be a guy or girl?
When you are born as Bengali, you got this superpower to consume sweets endlessly!
3.”Jol khabo”, “Chaa khabo”– yes, we Bengalis, eat everything…
Have you heard anyone to say,”Jol paan korechho?!” Nope. Never.
4.The Ethnic Day
No matter if you are in Bengal or not, when it comes to Durga Puja, you celebrate it wearing Sharee or Punjabi… at least once on those 5 days.
5.The Famous Sweetness
It is like sweetness is by default installed in Bengali’s system. Meet a Bengali and get sweetness for free.
6.So there exist people who prefer to have veg foods?
By their choice?
Wait! What! Repeat! Why?
7.The Bangal-Ghoti Affair
So you are eager to tell your Non-Bengali friends how you won the debate regarding “Ilish-Chingri” or “Mohun Bagan-East Bengal match”. Wait for few minutes. Or may be hours. Because first you have to describe the entire concept and sentiment behind “Bangal-Ghoti” . And then if you have enough energy left in you, go ahead.
8. So you don’t know who Sourav Ganguly is. I don’t know you.
You are telling me you don’t know Rabindranath Tagore, Netaji, Swamiji, Satyajit Ray or Sourav Ganguly? What are you? Alien?
9. When you are the Shreya Ghoshal/Arijit Singh of your place…
You are humming a Bengali song and when you look up from your phone, suddenly, everyone is looking at you. That’s definitely A-W-K-W-A-R-D.
10. Ohh! The Language Problem!
So each time you want to say hair in Hindi, you hesitate? We, Bengalis, know the reason!
P.S.:I am a very proud Bengali. But restricting myself from exploring other’s culture, language is not what I tend to do.
