The City of Joy
The city of Kolkata, India (previously known as Calcutta) is one of the oldest and vibrant cities of South Asia. The buildings, trams, tangas and the lifestyle in general - all take you back to the colonial era, when the British Rule was in full swing. Here are some photos from my visit to Kolkata, earlier this month.
It has been named the 'City of Joy' the way Dominique Lapierre, the famous French author has called the city in a novel (published in 1985) of the same name. Now a major motion picture (released in 1992), the city of Kolkata is rightfully called the 'City of Joy'.
