WALKING THROUGH KOLKATA

Orchard Fresh and healthy nourishment laid out upon banana leaves all seated in a wicker flat basket  ! That's care for humans and environment. As you walk along the street, roadside entrepreneurs try to interest you in grabbing a bite. Yield to the temptation.

 
 Streets in old Calcutta have parallel rail lines embedded in the middle of the street. Tramways, still functioning in many parts of city, have been a cheap commuting medium. There are rows and rows of houses that one can mark in hundreds of years. It has been a cherished city and people won't let her go yet.





Through a maze of old city lanes one is guided to a spectacular vision of a grand mansion bang in the middle of colonial Calcutta. Thakur Bari - the Tagore family home. The house has been converted into a museum and is a veritable shrine to the poet. (you are told to take off your footwear). Every exhibit here reminds you that Tagore lived a rich life and made sure he left a richer world behind.

When Sid and Rajeswari took a vow

 


Early winter and Kolkata. Siddharth and Rajeshwari assembled their families in the city of legends to bless their commitments. Groom's mom and aunts shook a leg. Kolkata came alive for some 40 mins.

It was summer. It was Delhi. But it was also about Art. Nancy animatedly drew the gathering into some personal and communal experiences of the world that artists had lived in and had ventured to recreate.
