Bengalis aka Bongs are prominent for many things, so much that we sometimes wonder what would we be without them, especially the men. While, most of my Bong female friends aren’t much interested in a Bengali boyfriend/groom for themselves, here I’ll tell you why it is just awesome to have a bong boyfriend –
1. He’s got your back in his own unique ways
He isn’t muscular like the Punjabi munda next door nor canny like the others but packed with all the righteousness in between, you will always feel safe in his company. No wonder, he’s always got your back in his own distinctive style making you go “Awww..” each time.
2. He’s liberal, modern and worldly wise
Plan your trip to an unknown location and he might actually tell you the culture, tradition, and history of the place. Oh yea, he is that cosmopolitan – familiar with at least one foreign language.
3. He has a doting mom which comes as a double bonus
You will never feel the guilt of neglecting your beau once in a while as he has the best mom who dotes her kid so much.
4. He will sing for you
He will sing for you and that too in a perfect tune – Whether it is “All Shook Up” of Elvis Presley, or “Tum Ho….” from the Ranbir starrer Rockstar. But, chances are when he sings a Hindi song he might forget the lyrics.
Myth Debunked – Even if he is a die-hard fan of Hollywood movies he secretly likes Bollywood films and music too. Also don’t be surprise to see instruments such as guitar, tanpura, tabla, violin at his home which he played back in school days.
5. He’s opinionated and there starts the fun
Since he has an opinion on almost everything, you will love having a healthy debate with him on anything and everything.
6. He’s lazy which actually makes your life easy
Being lazy himself, he will never be behind your back to complete or finish any work that he had given to you – no matter how big or small it was. So, life is at ease in his company.
7. He’s a Foodie and always up for food
Oh that doesn’t mean you’ll have to stay glued to the kitchen while he watches his football match but it does mean indulging in a gourmet affair or haute cuisine every now and then. Don’t be surprise if he takes you on a holiday to Darjeeling only to indulge in those authentic Momos and Thupkas.
8. The “Dada” factor
Even the hottest girl of his college/office calls him “dada” – doesn’t that make you lucky when compared to other girls who waste half of their time in dealing with their archetypal girlfriend insecurities.
9. He is delightful and entertaining
There is a general misconception that Bong guys are all about books, theatre and football only. Perhaps, they have never seen him after he gets drunk. While many others might be a menace after getting heavily drunk, he is only funny and entertaining. Besides, he might be terrible while dancing with you at a disc or in a party, but nothing can beat his bisorjon or dhunuchi dance. He simply rocks there.
10. He loves non-violence
Your Bong Boyfriend will never beat up your brother, but will logically explain you how and why he is right. Gentle and inoffensive, he will stand by you always in the matters of love – just make sure you pronounce the right name of that veteran German novelists name.
Lastly, he is as sweet as mishti doi just like his daaknaam, fiery as a chilly (just try telling him that Tamilians/UPite are clever than Bengalis) but mostly easy going and fun loving smart guy who knows how to bring a big smile on your face with those random surprises .
