Chandra Kishore Sen, a Bengali entrepreneur founded a cosmetic company in
1878 & named it CK Sen & Co Pvt. Ltd. X was their premiere product being too
popular in entire Bengal at that time and name of the product starts with a
flower. An advertisement of X involving Kusumkumari Devi in 1905 was India’s
first ever ad film shot by Hiralal Sen at CK Sen’s Garden Villa at Y.
The company founded its first factory at Y which didn’t have any rail station at
that time. Hence CK Sen himself donated land to build the station. However
the old station building was completely burnt in 1959’s Food Movement.
Identify the product X and the place Y.

idiom has come to prominence in this
part of the country for all the wrong
reasons.
