Bengal has a long history. Even in the great epic Mahabharata, three Bengali princes are mentioned as aspirants for Draupadi's hand. Alexander, the Greek hero had to abandon his dreams of conquering the whole of India in face of the prowess of Bengali fighters. The rulers of Bengal extended their empire over the whole of Aryavarta (N.India) and Dakshinatya (S. India). Even at the great battle of Kurukshettra, a Bengali king fought for the Kauravas. King Basudev of Gaurh (as Bengal was then called) fought with Krishna at Dwarka. King Vijaya Singh spread his rule as far as distant Sri Lanka. Much later, Harshavardhan, the ruler of Uttarakhand (or N. India), had to face a set-back in his dreams of extending his empire, when confronted by Shashanka, king of Bengal, Bihar and Orissa.
