West Bengal is where the holy Ganga meets the ocean. It is home to the intelligent, sensitive and cultured Bengalis, the 'Bhadralok', as they are called. Equally passionate about religion, literature, music, football and cricket, they adore their saintly personages, Sri Aurobindo and Sri Ramakrishna, and Nobel laureates Rabindra Nath Tagore, Mother Teresa and Amartya Sen, who was honoured in 1998 for Economics. Also idolized, for their achievements in sports.

West Bengal is the gateway to the beautiful north eastern states of India where the visitor can only gaze in wonder at the pristine beauty. Its capital was once the capital of the British Empire that is Calcutta remains the cultural capital of India with a strong tradition in literature and fine arts.

West Bengal has a long history, that dates back before the Aryan invasion of India . Known as 'Gauda' or 'Vanga' in ancient Sanskrit literature, Bengal had a well - settled civilization and culture, at the time of the Aryan penetration. An integral part of successive empires of the Mauryas and Guptas, Bengal also had its own dynasty of independent rulers, the Palas, who extended the existing boundaries considerably. The Senas and the Muslim Sultanate, who occupied Bengal , shaped the distinct identity of Bengal . After the Mughals, modern Bengal 's history began with the advent of European and English trading companies. The end of British imperialism, saw a divided Bengal in 1947, with East Bengal (now the soveriegn state of Bangladesh ) becoming a part of Pakistan .

West Bengal is India 's 12th largest state. The state stretches from the foothills of Himalayas in the north to the Bay of Bengal in the south. Gopal Krishna Gokhale once said What Bengal thinks today, India thinks tomorrow." And Bengal , can be perhaps be justifiably proud of producing men and women whose ideas helped to shape modern India .
