TB: You sure have a way with the camera! Awesome photoblogs. Been almost 3 years since I went to Kolkata, but looks like things have not changed much except a bit more glitz

I know.

Pardon my statement, but I am sure you know what I mean. Just did not want to be too specific, thats all.

Kolkata is a place of amazing contrasts. Its got a Heritage.

the more you hate it the more you love it. Its unique, easy going, stresssful and calm at the same time. just that the work culture and people's attitude is bit of a problem.

Superb stuff as usual. And why I like it more is because you seem to see Kolkata the way I see it - Love it for what you should hate it. Gathered from the other threads that you are in Hyd now. Hope we will get to meet soon.

Hi Tirthankar, just came across your thread, and also went through the 2008 ones. Lovely sense of juxtaposing the variety of images that Kolkata has to offer. Especially loved the "flossing Mir" one. Couldn't resist cropping one of your Photoblog 2008 pics and re-posting here.

Tx. You have posted a very tastefully taken photo that I snapped from a building near Ruby X-ing. Thats a true skyliner. Glad You noticed the iconic structures which gives Kolkata its identity.

So You see, the structures were visible from 10 kms away with just a 10x zoom

Default Great humour

BTirthankar,

I notice a lot of implied Bong humour (self-flogging) in some pics (Poltuda and Chunibabu, Nothing to do nothing to lose, Bhar e cha etc). Pity that it will be lost on people not used to the ways of "Thaa Beengali"

Eager to meet you in the iminent TBHP meet. Also, would like to add some pics I have taken of the cityscape to this thread, as and when I have time to collate them.

Just to clarify - I would notice...! After all, I AM a true-blue Durga Pujo and Mishti Doi-loving Bong despite having migrated to New Delhi some 16-odd years ago from that city.

Am putting up a not-too-well-stitched panorama of the facade of the College Street Market taken in May, 2007, when it was being demolished to make way for modernity.

You'll gather how true-blue a Bong I am if I tell you that Santosh-er Mishti-r Dokan opposite this market is one of my favourites.

As usual, BT, your travelogue is good to watch and good humor too. Your captions are nice. BTW, you have posted so many pics of the persons, hope they do not mind it.
