It is a little short, I didn't know what to add. I thought about adding the Rarh region and perhaps the terai, but I chose against it. I felt like the locations I chose are interesting locales at least.

Sounds good, it might take some time before the next one though (I've got a few other regions to cover too).

Accept Burdwan and Bardhamman for Bardhaman and Darjeeling for Gorkhaland because Gorkhaland is not really a cultural proposed area but a unrecognised ongoing protest for a different state. And why Sandakphu is written Sandakpur in Hindi? And Gorkhaland is also written in Hindi?

And I don't know why you made it but I'll make another one too sorry.

Anyways, great quiz but too easy for anyone from India I guess

Those will work now, although Darjeeling seems a bit of a stretch since I already gave half the answer. This is part of a series, where I cover countries and sub-national regions. Also, Sandakphu, Gorkhaland are written in Nepali since that's the most common language in the area. Whenever I make these quizzes, I try and include the most spoken native, non-English name. According to Nepali Wikipedia the mountain is called Sandakpur, for whatever reason.

Ah... Now I understand that's nepali very similar to Hindi 😅

Anyways, Here I made my version of West Bengal on a Map

which is a bit tough than yours... Of course because I'm from Bengal

Thank you, good to hear you found it interesting. And good question, I try and put the names of each place in the local language (at least on the map). The other language featured is actually Nepali and I included the Nepali names in areas where the language is spoken. Not that the Hindi/Nepali names are all that different.

I like how you used Bengali script :) Maybe I'll try making one of these for Bangladesh sometime. Doesn't look like anyone has made one yet.
