Latest Kolkata News from India


Map of KolkataArt and literary capital of India – The city that reverberates with the sweetest melodies of Nobel littérateur Tagore reflects equally creative excellence of people who excelled in arts, and not to mention the fervor of Durga Puja is the capital city of West Bengal, Kolkata. Kolkata lies on the bank of River Hooghly and is more popular as The City of Joy. Don’t ask me if it’s because of the laughter club there. Connected with spiritualism, the people of this land are vocal yet frenzied, warm-hearted yet rebellious but above all they are passionate about its rich heritage.

Calcutta is my hometown, my motherland, this is the place who made me what I'm today. I still possess a nostalgic feeling about Calcutta. But, I feel the city hav'nt develope enough compare to other less renowned cities in India (forget about A-catagory cities). The airport is the same age old which was 15 years ago, the VIP road has become narrower, the foot-paths still occupied with hawkers. I don't know, what would the other areas be like ? God knows, if it ever will change.
It hurts me to write all this. It reminds me the famous lines "saat koti sontaner hey bongo janoni, rekhecho bangali korey manush koroni ".
