Football is a synonym for Bengalis. City of Joy, Kolkata is regarded as the football capital of India where football is more than a sport and the father of Indian football Nagendranath Sarbadhikary was indeed a Bengali.
Bengal travels through the different eras, be that 1911 when Mohun Bagan was able to defeat East Yorkshire Regiment 2–1 in the final of the IFA Shield by playing football on barefoot, Mohun Bagan vs East Bengal debacle or the present day uprising of football.
We at Jiyo bangla tried to capture this phenomenal sport, in its most unlike depiction, as a voice for different sentiments, emotions and sometimes rebellion.
Don't miss to like, share and comment. Bengal Rocks.
