Blog Name and Best Post

As I wrote in my earlier post, I have been toying with the idea of changing the name of my blog. So I asked my readers whether I should change my blog name or not in a poll. The results were :-

51% voters said no.

39% voters said yes.

5% voters polled can’t say and another 5% said “others”.

There were some good and hilarious suggestions from Suda and Vikas. I too have come up with some names :-

Vee tagged me to yet another revealing tag…a tag which would tell you 100 things about me. But people who are doing this tag have not checked the numbering. Its actually 87 questions. One made a mistake in numbering and rest followed!!! And I made it 86 as I don’t like odd numbers.

Bengali and Hindi Songs Tag

Music is an integral part of Bengali culture. Almost every Bengali girl in Kolkata learns singing. The older generations (and all the Non-Bengali persons I have come across and who were familiar about Bengali culture) actually expect every Bong girl to know how to sing “Robindro Songeet” but all of us DON’T know!! And then we are looked down upon for being “Probashi” (Out of state residents) and for being contrary to Bengali culture. Anyway that is another long story. Let me quote Wikipedia to explain what is Robindra Songeet.

Rabindra Sangeet also known as Tagore Songs in English, is a form of music composed by Rabindranath Tagore who added a new dimension to the musical concept of India in general and Bengal in specific. The Rabindrasangeet, which deal with varied themes are immensely popular and form a foundation for the Bengali ethos that is comparable to, perhaps even greater than, that which Shakespeare has on the English-speaking world. It is said that his songs are the outcome of 500 years of literary & cultural churning that the Bengali community has gone through.
