I fail to see how Mrinal Sen, Subhas Chandra Bose, Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das, and Satyajit Ray are members of the renaissance. I wont remove them (unlike a certain user), but I am curious (especially about Sen, Das, and Bose).BakamanBakatalk 01:43, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
Mrinal Sen is not, and Satyajit Ray prolly isn't too. Bose and Das were important Bengali political leaders since the 1920s, so I added them, but again, I could be wrong. Rama's arrow 01:46, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
Maybe the scope of the renaissance can include freedom fighters. That way Bose and Deshbandhu Das can be justified.BakamanBakatalk
That will be a very long shot. Basically, just think what Renaissance mean. It's something like "Punorrjagaran" or a revival. Politics is not a part of it. You might check the European Renaissance topics. It is a social thing, not likely a political. Quoting from there:
The Italian Renaissance of the 15th century represented a reconnection of the west with classical antiquity, the absorption of knowledge (particularly mathematics), a focus on the importance of living well in the present (Renaissance humanism), and an explosion of the dissemination of knowledge brought on by the advent of printing. In addition, the creation of new techniques in art, poetry, and architecture led in turn to a radical change in the style and substance of the arts and letters. The Italian Renaissance was often labeled as the beginning of the "modern" epoch, or the Early Early Modern.
Even then, Bose and Das are beyond the trailing end of the period. --Ragib 05:09, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
Yes I think its wise to keep politicians out of it - its wise to keep the broader freedom struggle topics out of this. After all, Bose had an all-India impact, not just Bengal. Rama's arrow 14:20, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
Even Anandabazar also should not be in this template. It was founded in 1922. GDibyendu (talk) 13:33, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
