It has been more than one year for me in Calcutta as of now and I came across so many more things over here that I though of penning it down to share it again. And yes I am calling Kolkata as Calcutta because ever since I remember, I knew this place as Calcutta only and I loved that name.
I had been to other metros also, came across various places/people but this city, oldest metro of my country is again a Pandora's box for me.
This city has got a culture of British Raaj, old buildings depicting the legacy of English spread into acres and acres of land like Victoria Memorial
Also I could see people struggling to reach their destinations in crowded buses
I could see few places of ample parking space in the heart of the city
Also I could see bumper to bumper parking nearby
I could see people enjoying a Ferry ride for pleasure and outing
Also I could see a fisherman waiting for fishes to get caught in his net patiently for hours in the same waters
I could see mad rush of people during Durga Puja celebrations
Also I could see same old city moving at its own pace somewhere else
I could see innovative ideas during during Durga Puja celebrations
Also I could see very old local trains acting as a backbone of the city
I could see nature at its best during one of my outings
Also I could see craftsman's perfect creations
As we sit and watch, the city opens up bit by bit and shows us its many faces....
