Bengalis are normal
After the success of my post, people have started doing research to understand Bengalis better.
Nuggets from the research shows that "Bengali consumers want value for money as well as quality products", as opposed to wanting products which don't give value or quality. I can see a subtle shift towards free-markets!
However, they are still interested in news "though a viewer was (still) not expected to watch several (news) slots at a go". Some things never should change.
