West Bengal is on the eastern bottleneck of India, stretching from the Himalayas in the north to the Bay of Bengal in the south. The state has a total area of 88,752 square kilometres (34,267sqmi).[2] The Darjeeling Himalayan hill region in the northern extreme of the state is a part of the eastern Himalayas mountain range. In this region is Sandakfu, which, at 3,636m (11,929ft), is the highest peak in the state.[97] The narrow Terai region separates the hills from the North Bengal plains, which in turn transitions into the Ganges delta towards the south. The Rarh region intervenes between the Ganges delta in the east and the western plateau and high lands.

I will give an example. Upper middle class Bengalis and lower middle class Bengalis dont mix much. If a Bengali officer is fighting with a Bihari rickshawalla, the Bengali rickshawalla will support the Bihari rickshawalla. Class is over race and religion. The low income groups hate high income group. Hardly any Bengali in city , who has stayed for 2 generations, have any contact with their relatives in village. Class and current city. There is class hatred. Villages are a part of Bihari culture. Nearly every city Bihari has relatives in villages. Class is very important in Bengal.

Although Hindus are the predominant community, the state has a large minority Muslim population. Christians, Buddhists, and others form a minuscule part of the population. West Bengal is religiously diverse, with regional cultural and religious specificities.

Patna does not have much influence on overall Bihari culture. People are more self centered in Kolkata (I am not saying it in an abusing way) and what your neighbour thinks doesnt really mater. Bengal has been influenced by Kolkatas culture. Kolkata is nearly 10 times larger than Patna and life is quite fast there compared to Patna. For non Bengalis, Kolkata and Bengal are one.

The western part went to the Dominion of India and was named West Bengal. The eastern part went to the Dominion of Pakistan as a province called East Bengal (later renamed East Pakistan in 1956), becoming the independent nation of Bangladesh in 1971.[71] In 1950 the Princely State of Cooch Behar merged with West Bengal.[72] In 1955 the former French enclave of Chandannagar, which had passed into Indian control after 1950, was integrated into West Bengal; portions of Bihar were also subsequently merged with West Bengal. Both West and East Bengal experienced large influxes of refugees during and after partition in 1947. When India gained independence in 1947, Bengal was partitioned along religious lines.

The coastal region of Purba Medinipur exhibits coastal vegetation; the predominant tree is the Casuarina. From a phytogeographic viewpoint, the southern part of West Bengal can be divided into two regions: the Gangetic plain and the littoral mangrove forests of the Sundarbans.[111] The alluvial soil of the Gangetic plain, combined with favourable rainfall, makes this region especially fertile.[111] Much of the vegetation of the western part of the state has similar species composition with the plants of the Chota Nagpur plateau in the adjoining state of Jharkhand.[111] The predominant commercial tree species is Shorea robusta, commonly known as the sal tree.

The capital, Kolkata, was the workplace of several social reformers, including Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Iswar Chandra Vidyasagar, and Swami Vivekananda.

In the 19th and 20thcenturies, Bengali literature was modernised in the works of authors such as Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, whose works marked a departure from the traditional verse-oriented writings prevalent in that period;[187]Michael Madhusudan Dutt, a pioneer in Bengali drama who introduced the use of blank verse;[188] and Rabindranath Tagore, who reshaped Bengali literature and music. West Bengal has a long tradition of folk literature, evidenced by the Charyapada, a collection of Buddhist mystic songs dating back to the 10th and 11thcenturies; Mangalkavya, a collection of Hindu narrative poetry composed around the 13thcentury; Shreekrishna Kirtana, a pastoral Vaishnava drama in verse composed by Boru Chandidas; Thakurmar Jhuli, a collection of Bengali folk and fairy tales compiled by Dakshinaranjan Mitra Majumder; and stories of Gopal Bhar, a court jester in medieval Bengal. The Bengali language boasts a rich literary heritage it shares with neighbouring Bangladesh.

Many people in Bengals cities have been influenced by European cultural thoughts. There has been an important of European thoughts since 19h century. Kolkata, the capital of Bengal has had many cultural experiments and mixings. Patna, the capital of Bihar has not seen much cultural mixing and the main thought process in Bihars cities is based on Hindi thinking system.

Bengals divorce rate is 15000 divorces per month. In Bengal, they are treated as a group of people whom we know. Relatives are given an importance in Bihar. Family values are given more importance in Bihar. In general, middle class Biharis give respect to unknown elders. In Bengal the attitude is I am a citizen of democratic country, just like you. In Bihar, its 700. What the relatives think doesnt matter here. In Kolkata, its very normal to see 25 year old boy/ girl arguing aggressively with a 50 year old man or woman. You are not my family member so no extra respect for you.

Eden Gardens was one of only two 100,000-seat cricket stadiums in the world;[255] renovations before the 2011 Cricket World Cup reduced the capacity to 66,000.[256] The stadium is the home to various cricket teams such as the Kolkata Knight Riders, the Bengal cricket team, and the East Zone. The 1987 Cricket World Cup final was hosted in Eden Gardens. West Bengal has several large stadiums.
