The Overseas Bangali Academic Hypocrisy

If a fraction of Bengali Academics in overseas universities over the last fifty would have worked for the state in even advisory capacities, the illustrious Bangali would have made his/her state better rather than celebrating Pujo over a weekend in Houston or London or Muscat. We (I am half Bong myself) love everything in absentia, and the nostalgia is limited to an annual tourist trip to Shantiniketan and patronising Mustard in Singapore.
