West Bengal is a land of natural beauty, exquisite lyrical poetry and enthusiastic people.     Situated in the east of India, West Bengal is stretches from the Himalayas in the north to the Bay of Bengal in the South.  This state shares international boundaries with Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal.  Hence it is a strategically important place.  The state is interlocked by the other states like Sikkim, Assam, Orissa and Bihar. Hooghly and its tributaries - Mayurakshi, Damodar, Kangsabati and the Rupnarayan, enrich the soils of Bengal.  The northern districts of Bengal like Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri and Cooch Bihar (in the Himalayas ranges) are watered by the rivers Tista, Torsa, Jaldhaka and Ranjit.  From the northern places (feet of Himalayas) to the tropical forests of Sunderbans, West Bengal is a land of incessant beauty.
