The Bengal Renaissance and the Brahmo Samaj socio-cultural reform movements significantly influenced the cultural and economic life of Bengal.[67] Between 1905 and 1911 an abortive attempt was made to divide the province of Bengal into two zones.[68] Bengal suffered from the Great Bengal famine in 1943, which claimed threemillion lives during World WarII.[69] Bengalis played a major role in the Indian independence movement, in which revolutionary groups such as Anushilan Samiti and Jugantar were dominant. Armed attempts against the British Raj from Bengal reached a climax when news of Subhas Chandra Bose leading the Indian National Army against the British reached Bengal.

I will give an example. Upper middle class Bengalis and lower middle class Bengalis dont mix much. If a Bengali officer is fighting with a Bihari rickshawalla, the Bengali rickshawalla will support the Bihari rickshawalla. Class is over race and religion. The low income groups hate high income group. Hardly any Bengali in city , who has stayed for 2 generations, have any contact with their relatives in village. Class and current city. There is class hatred. Villages are a part of Bihari culture. Nearly every city Bihari has relatives in villages. Class is very important in Bengal.

There is a gender disparity in school attendance in the 6 to 14-year age group, more girls than boys are attending school. School attendance is almostuniversal among the 6 to 14-year age group then drops to 70% with the 15 to 17-year age group. In Bengal, 71% of women aged 1549 years and 81% of men aged 1549 years are literate. Only 14% of women aged 1549 years in West Bengal have completed 12 or more years of schooling, compared with 22% of men. As of 2016 85% of children within the 6 to 17-year age group attend school (86% do so in urban areas and 84% in rural areas).

I myself have never shown any interest in visiting Benaras. Certain rituals are considered as a part of culture and although followed, are not given much importance. The reason is simple- in Bihar the main religion is Brahmanism mixed with Vaishnavism. A young religious person is called joker. Bengalis in general are not religious. Biharis are religious. I wont say Brahmanism because priests are considered illiterates. I wont say Bengalis are spiritual, but no doubt, many are not ritualistic. Shaktism has a touch of non religiosity and is spiritual. I support this attitude. For them, its Hindi Hinduism. Young Biharis are much more religious than young Bengalis. Young generation of Bengalis dont have much interest in cities like Kashi and Benaras. Ritualism is less. In Bengal, its Shaktism.

Many people in Bengals cities have been influenced by European cultural thoughts. There has been an important of European thoughts since 19h century. Kolkata, the capital of Bengal has had many cultural experiments and mixings. Patna, the capital of Bihar has not seen much cultural mixing and the main thought process in Bihars cities is based on Hindi thinking system.

Patna does not have much influence on overall Bihari culture. People are more self centered in Kolkata (I am not saying it in an abusing way) and what your neighbour thinks doesnt really mater. Bengal has been influenced by Kolkatas culture. Kolkata is nearly 10 times larger than Patna and life is quite fast there compared to Patna. For non Bengalis, Kolkata and Bengal are one.
