India is strategically located in southern Asia, bordering Pakistan China, Nepal, and Bhutan on the north; Bangladesh, Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), and the Bay of Bengal on the east; the Palk Strait and the Gulf of Mannar and the Indian Ocean on the south; and the Arabian Sea and Pakistan on the west.

New Delhi is the capital of India and is one of the largest cities.

West Bengal Profile

West Bengal, a state in eastern India, stretches from the Himalayas in the north to the Bay of Bengal in the south. It was on 1st May 1960 when West Bengal was given the status of a separate state in the Indian union, purely on linguistic basis.

The state has been subjected to a variety of influences from diverse cultures. Since time immemorial, the culmination of these varied cultures along with Bengal's very own ever-growing richness has given birth to a unique Bengali culture.

It is a land of varied charms. Right from the mighty Himalayas in the north to the sea-caressed beaches in the south, it is a wonderful journey over the verdant plains, hilly terrains, forests and the wonderful mangrove forests like the Sunderbans.

West Bengal is a prosperous state with more than two third of the population depending on agriculture. The people believe in “simple living and high thinking” policy. The state has been ruled by the left Front for the past 30 years making it a democratically elected communist government. In the more recent time, there is tremendous reformation going on at various sectors viz. economy, education, transport and tourism etc.
