Kolkata







This is taken out of a mail that was forwarded to me. And although the theme is hackneyed and the lines cliched, it still evokes a certain nostalgia that I have come to associate with Calcutta and being away from the city I so love.

And to quote a few lines from Veer Sanghvi's brilliant article:
"........... And to understand Calcutta, you must understand the Bengali. It's not easy. Certainly, you can't do it till you come and live here, till you let Calcutta suffuse your being, invade your bloodstream and steal your soul. But once you have, you'll love Calcutta forever. Wherever you go, a bit of Calcutta will go with you....."

Actually, if any of you guys is a Flickr member, you can search for Cal pics and then ask the member who posted it if you can put it up on this blog. I'm sure most amateurs won't mind.

If I come across any, I'll certainly ask them!
