The Flavour of Rural Bengal.

For many days I have been thinking on building a page on Rural Bengal, where the real heart of the people lives. We have a tendency to focus only our best Architecture, Culture, Big Cities, Big Modern buildings, Art, or anything modern or perhaps anything which will not reflect our Poverty and backwardness. But in my view we must not forget our past at onetime we all belonged to Rural part may during our great grand father's time.
However,talking about the beauty of Bengal, I feel it is still unexplored and still virgin. Since, I became the VT member I have developed of carrying a digital camera with me. And I tour around in the rural areas of Bengal for my work purposes, I have captured many flavours of Rural Bengal. I will gradually bring the beauty of Rural Bengal to the world of VT. It's wonderful!!. I will continue to build this page thru' various seasons, period may be for years as I travel, I will bring the beuty of Bengal to the world. So wait....... I will start with Monsoon.Mother Nature has given beauty in abandance................... Let's Explore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thr Rural Bengal is Rivers, Greenery, Hamlets, hillocks, forests, rice fields and so on. I will keep editing this page so the language will keep changing.

    The country is so large and this looks like a lush green area that rivals any others. Great job of presenting it.

    Amazing to read about your Rural Bengal, sounds like particular places in Indonesia, where a Goddess is worshipped. Loved the rain tellings... we enjoyed rain, too, when we were kids in Papua (New Guinea), greets RoyJava

    Oh it is 13 counties rather than country's, sometimes known in other country's as provinces perhaps and no telescope needed on a clear day either
