Controversy, it seems, will not leave the Hillary-Mamta Banerjee meeting alone.

First there was the issue over Foreign Direct Investment or FDI.

Now there is turbulence over the gift that the US Secretary of State gave to the West Bengal Chief Minister.

The gift was a piece of cloth with Rabindranath Tagore's face embroidered on it and the words of one of his songs embroidered round the edges in Bengali script.

No one noticed initially but when photos of the mat came out in newspapers, it was found that Tagore's lines were full of spelling mistakes.

Not only are there spelling mistakes in the lyrics embroidered around the edges of the mat, even the words are wrong.

There is at least one online petition demanding an apology from the US embassy in Delhi for the mistakes and a correction of the same.
