Bengal has caricatured the prototype male wearing dhoti, kurta and topi and working as a clerk in a government office as ‘Bengali Babu’. On the other hand, women wear long saris with extra-long pallus. Many freedom fighters like Khudiram Bose, Matangini Hazra, and Hemchandra Kanungo belong to this region. Not to mention the Magsaysay award winner, Mahashweta Devi also hails from this region. Bengal was the fountainhead of Indian renaissance and Bengali people were the forerunners in its struggle for independence.
