Every Bengali kid is taught essential life lessons from the day of her/his birth. These are our favorite lessons we learned early in life.
1.Maacher kaanta nije baachte shekh !
Nothing should come between you and your fish !!
Bongs learn how to tackle those dangerous fish bones with unmatched perfection at a very young age.
Every Bong friend you have, knows one of these.
It’s in their DNA, they have to be good at some form of art other than studies !
3.Onko te eto kom marks kano ?
Math ! They have to do the math and they have to be good at it. A bong child scoring a hundred in maths and failing all other subjects, is still a hero.
4.Baba maa’r mukher opor ekdom torko korbe na !
Mom and Dad are always correct ! Can never challenge their logic !
5.Notun bat shobai ke dibi na !!
You are not supposed to share your cricket bat with anyone, whosoever it be !!!
6.Tiffin ta puro shesh kore anbi !
Dont even think about skipping lunch, the one your mom lovingly made for you. Giving the food away to someone, or even throwing it away was a much better option than facing your mom !
Did we miss some of the lesson Bengalis teach their little ones? Let us know!
