Bengal will never bow its head before others Mamata

Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister on Friday lauded Bengali film makers for their message of unity in diversity for decades and said the state will never bow its head before others.
Bengal has produced a number of award winning film makers and the largest number of Nobel Prize winners in the country, she said inaugurating the 25th Kolkata International Film Festival.
Banerjee's comment was an apparent answer to Union Home Minister Amit Shah's statement that Bengal is lagging behind in scientific and cultural development.
"Bengal is number one in terms of giving the country award winning film makers.
We are number one in scientific and cultural development in the country," Banerjee said without naming either Shah or BJP.
