A few stories from Bengal, which will make people wonder if there is/was something special about that place! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hundred or so years ago a Portuguese young man landed in Kolkata, ran a small business of his own, soon he fell for a Bengali widow and married her.

Well, that was the beginning of his love story for Bengal ๐Ÿ™‚ He not only loved, married a Bengali Brahmin woman he learned Bengali to the utmost level, yes sir, back then the Bengali poets used to have poetry duel in Bengali, both competitors used to sit face to face in front of a crowd and fight the duel of verses, this guy, who learned Bengali after marrying a Bengali defeated even the legendary poets of that time!

Not only that, there is a temple of mother goddess Kali built by him in Kolkata. ๐Ÿ™‚
