poets dreamed of a Bengal as a land of plenty. And plenty
is there, if not so much in the granary of the farmers,
at least in the undaunted spirit of our people. Famine,
flood and natural disasters do their work, leave their ravages,
in every town, big or small, but life asserts itself no
sooner than the calamity is over. Life manifests itself
in every remote village, in activities and pursuits of immense
variety. It has a richness all its own.
