Bengalis Will Be Bengalis

Hidden in this news item is this trivia:

"The passage of the Berman Bill HR 7081 will set the stage for the 123 agreement to be signed into law by President George Bush and the formal signing during secretary of state Condoleezza Rice's visit to New Delhi sometime in October. Earlier, Rice was scheduled to follow foreign minister Pranab Mukherjee back to New Delhi on October 3. But because of Durga puja, Mukherjee will not be available."

Since when is Durga Puja more important than the affairs of the state? When the foreign minister is a bengali, I guess.
