“In Your Face” – Kolkata, Travel Journal By Bashit Al – Amin


Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) is the capital of West Bengal and the second largest city in India (after Mumbai). Kolkata is famous for its people, their culture, food, music, literature and the movies. It is an ‘In your face’ city that shocks and charms the unsuspecting visitor. A vivid city rendered in elegantly striking contrasts, Kolkata is a treat to the traveling soul and a fresh canvas to photographer’s eye. Long known as the cultural capital of India, Kolkata continues to spawn generations of poets, writers, film producers and Nobel Prize winners. The famous Durga Puja in October draws many people to the city. If your trip only allows for a visit of one or two of India’s metropolitan cities, then definitely consider placing Kolkata on your itinerary. Love it or hate it, you definitely won’t forget the city on the Hooghly.
