West Bengal
West Bengal is more than a state – an idea smeared with nostalgia, and, of a glorious past. This is the motherland of legendary Indian poets and literary people. It's in the nature of every Bengali to find the pure delight in everything that they do. No exaggeration! Being a coastal state, rice & fish happens to be the staple diet and take our word, you would swoon into every bite of it. Also, it is often said; a Bengali can imagine life without water, but he cannot imagine life without Mach-Bhat (rice & fish)smiley. Besides, West Bengal is not just about Kolkata, and, its surrounding attractions including Howrah Bridge, Birla Temple, &  Eden Gardens. As you scratch the surface, you will get to discover an unhurried world beyond the bustle of the city lives, where, silence has its own language, and, nature serves its own agenda. Yes, we are talking about Rural Bengal where once the Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore lived. Of course, we are also talking about the Tigers of Sunderbans, a destination in itself. A trip to Bengal will never be complete without witnessing tea gardens and the picturesque Himalayas in Darjeeling.
