I shall love to answer to questions on general culture of Bengal, particularly one that is vibrant in and around Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal state of India. I may guide you about the basics of it. Further, I can discuss about teh very basics of a few components of it, like Music, literature, food, passtime, etc.

Experience in the area

I write prose in Bengali and I have formal training in Rabindra Sangeet, the most well known from of Bengali Music.
