Bengalis love to celebrate their language, their culture, their politics, their fierce attachment to a city that has been famously dying for more than a century. They resent with equal ferocity the reflex stereotyping that labels any civic dysfunction anywhere in the world 'another Calcutta.
Have you ever known a girl from a dysfunctional family?
Those girls have always questioned the intentions of people they meet. They know how quickly a situation can take a different turn. They have faced more emotional betrayals than most. Their promises have been broken more than once.
Those girls always move around in search of that part of themselves that was somehow lost while growing up. They have this idea that it is better to be alone than to open your heart to someone.
But you know what? Those girls are the ones who will love you most. They have known what it feels like to be emotionally abandoned and so they will never want you to feel that way. They take the vow to give you everything that they wanted in their life so that there are no more dysfunctional families.
