The Bengali culture is differentiated by its music, cinema and specially its literature. Many Bengali writers gave the world some of the best known works of literature from India. Rabindranath Tagore was unmistakably the most famous of them all. It was not only his short stories that created magic, his poems are still famous as Rabindra Music and Rabindra Nritya. Two of his poems are also used as the national anthem of India and Bangladesh. He also became the first Nobel Laureate from Asia in 1913
To get to see the culture of Bengal at its most colorful, one must visit Bengal during the time of Durga Puja. Every section of the society basks in the magnificent atmosphere created by this festival. From a month before, the streets and homes are illuminated; the markets are filled with people shopping for new clothes and home decorations, especially in Kolkata. No wonder Kolkata is called the Cultural capital of India apart from being famous as the Intellectual capital of India.
