    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: BHUTTO: "Bengal - both, all of Bengal - and Bangladesh and India, east and west, has suffered so much. If you go right beck into history - right from 1712 it's been a tragic and unusually ... (INDISTINCT). The spiral of revenge must not go up and up. Tension must not be added to tension. Someday, someone with vision -- somewhere, someone with a sense of humility...(INDISTINCT)...and this is what's going to happen to Bengal. The streets of Calcutta are full of people who are sleeping there - on the roads. So there's no picture for my Bengal, for the whole of Bengal to become part of India. India's Bengal is not California, India's Bengal is not San Francisco or the United States. They say - let's go to the Premised Land. That's not the Promised Land -- that's the slum of the world. My Bengal will not go to the slum of the world. We have been victims of mistake - but victims of mistake does not means that we must be dismembered."
