Tagore in reality had repudiated Knighthood in protest against the Jalianwalla Bagh massacre. In the past there was huge uproar over theft of Rabindranath Tagore's Nobel Prize medal.

Deb recently kick started a controversy when he said internet existed in the days of epic Mahabharata.

"India is using internet since several lakhs years. In Mahabharata Sanjay, who was blind was narrating to Dhitrastra as to what is happening in battle field due to internet and technology."

Deb later said that said all international fashion and design contest organized in Paris are run by “international marketing mafia”. He said international businessmen took advantage of the fact that Indians are winning beauty pageants in a row.
