What has the Bengal Govt. done to promote or showcase tourism from Bengal in this prestigious event in London ? The picture of Mr. Mitra (as if in a poet sabha) speaks for itself. He should have identified tour operators from Bengal who specializes in operating & promoting tours in Bengal & taken them to London & taken their advice & supported them as required.A great opportunity lost to actually attract tourists, specially when the theme this time was Bengal.
