Wikipedia:WikiProject Bengal

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to improve organisation and standardised look and feel of articles related to Bengal. This was found particularly important due to, among other reasons, occasionally conflicting views and opinions on topics from the two main parts of Bengal, namely Bangladesh and West Bengal.

If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.


WikiProject on Bengal


The scope of this article fundamentally is loosely defined as all articles and sections relating to Bengal. Almost all of these will be (eventually) categorised under Category:Bengal and possibly under Category:India and/or Category:Bangladesh as well, depending on relevance!


  1. Creation of a generally standard look and feel for all Bengal-related article
  2. Distinction between the use of the terminologies Bengal, West Bengal, East Bengal and Bangladesh (possibly also East Pakistan).
