Introduction

What makes a Bengali? A love of the language and the culture (leaning towards Tagore and the progressive movements), a poet's heart, an open mind, and an affinity for anything "intellectual", pardon me the cliche!

What Rupa is saying about this Meetup Group

I feel I have known these people for ages. Was there ever a time before this? Did I really once live in New York without this bangla-chorcha that gushes from the heart? What would have happened if we never got a chance to talk about Ludo and Rabindranath in the same breath? Can there be a better way to bundle together the ludicrous and the sublime? Existential questions? Matter of existence, no doubt. Jeeyon kathi.
