ARE BENGALI GIRLS AS SEXY AS THEIR REPUTATION INSINUATES? Are Bengali men so handsome and irresistable that they have to be deported from countries like Malaysia? There is a lot of rumour and speculation out there, and this website is an attempt to confirm the truth and negate the lies. On the other hand, if you want to meet Bengali men or women then this is your site, this is your magnet. According to one rather catty woman I encountered third hand on the Internet: "You know what Bengali women, especially from Calcutta, are like? Overtly sexual -- it's not like they dress like Mallika Sherawat or something. On the contrary, they'll wear these rather ethnic saris and big bindis but then then they'll arch their bodies in this overly seductive manner and speak in this low breathy manner. It's like a perpetual come hither look on their face. And this woman got that so perfectly -- her champagne voice, the quiet drawl, the swing of the hips. Yikes! And to think men are suckers for that kind of crap!"
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Suckers or not, this seems to be a common perception in India and Bangladesh and the rest of the world. Hottie Hottie Bong Bong says: "From more than one non-Bengali friend, I have heard this 'Bong babes are hot' refrain -- I remember watching 'Aye Uri Uri' from Saathiya amidst a crowd of desis at Stonybrook when a guy from UP, no doubt inspired by Rani Mukherjee's bedroom antics with Vivek Oberoi, whispered to me (without any come-hither arching of his back may I add) that:
"'Dada, I have to hand it to you. Bengali girls are the BEST.'
"I sighed. Growing up in Calcutta, we had a similar fascination for Punjabi girls -- according to urban legend, Punjabi girls had figures to die for, knew the art of seduction, had malleable morals and in general never said 'no' to anything..."
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Hottie Hottie Bong Bong goes on to state: "Bengali girls cannot generically be considered as experts in the art of making men mad with lust. It's only girls who come from specific backgrounds, who attended specific educational institutions and who have similar-minded friends that satisfy, to a certain extent, the stereotype. And I suspect that girls from other parts of India, who fit into the same cultural-moral-educational context, are equally Bong-ish.
"However there is another grain of truth in the statement of the blogger above. Bengali girls from outside Kolkata, called Probasi Bengalis, are very different, by and large from the Kolkata Bengali girl. Without resorting to simplifying generalizations, my immense experience (yeah right !) dealing with both these tribes lead me to conclude that Probasi Bengalis are far more conservative (not politically of course -- this conservatism is in reference to issues guys really care about) than their Kolkata sisters."
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Zimbio reports: "The main difference between bangladeshi grils and bengali girls is bangladeshi girls like shaloyar kamiz, besides bengali girls like t-shirt and jeans . Now a days bangladeshi girls are trying to improve their food habit , fashion , jewellery and trying to be more stylist..."

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

It is not just the Bengali women who are considered hot -- the men are judged to be pretty attractive too. In fact, Bengali men from Bangladesh have been banned from Malaysia because they are just too damned sexy! The Bangla Community reports: "Bangladeshi workers were banned from Malaysia two years ago, mainly because they were creating 'social problems' by entering into romantic liaisons with local women, said Saiful Islam, a spokesman for Radzi.
"The New Straits Times quoted the Bangladesh home affairs minister Radzi Sheikh Ahmad as saying on Sunday that the Bangladeshis come as students, only to work in low-paid menial jobs in the country, which has a severe labour shortage because rising economic prosperity has provided many Malaysians with white-collar jobs.
"Islam said that they were found to have harassed young women and eloped with married women, who apparently succumbed to their good looks and charms.
"On Sunday, Radzi said Bangladeshi men look like Indian movie stars.
"Most of the men, aged between 25 and 30, were recorded as studying English, he said.
"'This is really fishy. The age bracket is suitable for employment. Bangladesh is an English-speaking country and it makes little sense for them to study English here,' Radzi was quoted as saying. 'The abuse is glaring because Bangladeshis are not allowed to work here, but we can see hundreds working in construction sites and restaurants.'
"Radzi said most were brought by agents who made deals with colleges to bring in the workers as students, then place them for employment.
"He said his ministry was taking the necessary action to curb the practice. 'I can assure you there are thousands of them. Of course, Malaysia is striving to be an education hub but abuse of provisions is something that cannot he tolerated," he said...

Ghataks or ghotoks are the traditional matchmakers of Bengali society. Like the Bataks of Indonesia, the Bengalis are a race of two faiths -- in their case, Hinduism and Islam. Partition split the Bengalis into two nations: Muslim Bangladesh and Hindu India (West Bengal State). There are also considerable number of Bengalis in Burma (the Rohingya people) and the Gulf States (notably Saudi Arabia).

BANGLADESH AND CALCUTTA DON'T SPRING TO MIND AS BEING GREAT EPICENTERS OF THE CLUB SCENE. But that could be a misconception. Nahawna Afooa blogs: "Apparently the saying goes: Expats cry twice - once when they are told they have to go to Bangladesh and once when they have to leave. Why? Because Bangladesh is considered the bottom rung of locations to do development work in the world. Africa is at the top, BD at the bottom. This is what I've learned from all the yearning to go to Africa I've heard from the Aid workers here.
"Now why do they hate to leave? Because of the clubbing, of course. These aren't clubs in the sense that you may be thinking, like say discotec. No, these are Clubs in the most neo-colonial sense of the word: Country Clubs. And you have to be a citizen of the aforementioned country working with purpose in Bangladesh to become a member. Some only allow membership from the diplomatic community, some based on language but all have restrictions on the number of Bangladeshi's that are allowed in at any given time. Heaven's no, they can't become members, they can only be signed in as guests and only a few at a time because one wouldn't want to sully one's reputation. Once you are a member of one club you have access to all the rest. Except, some clubs (read the American Club) think other clubs (read the BAGHA Club - British Aid Workers Guest House Association Club) are too lenient with the locals and have placed extra restrictions on other club's members.
"What's so great about these clubs anyway that everyone is vying for a spot at the membership roster? Well the alcohol and the scantily clad women, of course. These are some of the few places that serve alcohol and where foreign women can wear whatever clothes they want. They hold parties with both of the above present as well as music and dancing. Essentially they are an oasis of the west in Bangladesh.."

Mobile Numbers: Of Banglaeshi Girls.
Mobile phone numbers seem to be hot property in India and Bangladesh. This is especially so when they belong to young women who are looking for a date. This wesbite has literally hundreds of phone numbers. Despite the name, only a minority of them belong to girls ("all Bangladeshi school and college girls, also House wife aunties... collected from the Internet", or so the website claims.) Most of the numbers have in fact been posted by guys looking for girls, in the comments section underneath the main content. Amongst the girls who had their numbers listed above the fold you can find short comments, perhaps written by the girls themselves. One of the girls apparently says: "Pream korar kotha bolla hoba na valo friendship korta hoba tarpor ja khusi korta paro no problem."

WHILE INDIA HAS BECOME FAMOUS IN RECENT YEARS FOR ITS FLAMBOYANT WEDDINGS, WEDDING CUSTOMS VARY CONSIDERABLY ACROSS THE COUNTRY. The Indian International Student Organization claims that "y and power. In fact, it is the wife who must keep house and look after all the household requirements..."
Bengali Culture: "The vivid picture of the kitchen in medieval Bengali literature (is) collected in Mangal Kavyas. A woman's culinary activity makes her a participant in the sacrificial aspect in which cooking is closely connected to religion. Preparation of a meal is also linked to Karma (desire). A young woman must study the rules of culinary erotica and develop them into an art to win over husband's attention -- a universal feminine strategy. The best role model for a Bengali woman is Draupadi as it is believed that she used to keep all her five husbands happy and none used to return from her kitchen hungry."
The wedding menu in Bengali household are almost the same selection of dishes. Fish cutlet / Vegetable cutlet (crumbed and deep fried) Radhaballavi Alur dam / Cholar dal narkel diya Fried rice (steamed rice with vegetables and nuts in ghee)
