Paying an emphasis on the formation of West Bengal, Governor Gulab Chand Kataria observed that, “Amidst the tumultuous era of India’s independence, when our great nation faced the agonizing division, the steadfast region of Bengal stood against its purported assimilation into East Pakistan, now known as Bangladesh. The people of India have consistently displayed remarkable resilience, unwavering in their commitment to uphold and strengthen the diverse fabric of the great nation.

The Governor said that the Celebration of Statehood Day, envisioned by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is an awe-inspiring and standard-setting event that honors the vibrant cultural tapestry of India.

Kataria also said Bengalis have long been revered as stalwarts of literature, art, music, and theatre, with a rich cultural heritage that dates back centuries. The luminous tapestry of Bengali literature first unfurled its brilliance even before the dawn of the 12th century.

Speaking on the occasion the Governor said that, Rabindranath Tagore, the Nobel laureate, is not just a treasure of Bengal; his literary prowess has made him a revered figure admired across the world. Tagore’s profound contributions to literature, music, and art have left an indelible mark on the cultural landscape.

The Governor stated that, throughout history, India has exemplified unity and sovereignty through a myriad of timeless elements. From ancient times to the present day, the nation has fostered a sense of togetherness and celebrated its diverse culture, intertwining the past with the present.
