24 hours in Calcutta

by mazoldboy

Emotional, harrowing diary article...

Sean Thomas is shocked by the reality of life – and death – in the former capital of the British Raj

How true is this...really?

Re: 24 hours in Calcutta

Some people can't deal with reality.

Sh!t happens, but life goes on.

India is not all like this, it is a fantastic country but it does need your understanding whilst you visit there, it is NOT home and you should not expect it to be.

Re: 24 hours in Calcutta

Sad, but true.
The bad part is that there is not much hope for things to change in the near future.
--
Living there, one is used to ignore and move on. Maybe difficult for citizens of affluent countries to witness these scenes.
If you think you will find this painful, avoid the city....else just focus on the brighter side of Kolkata (there are many) when you are there.

Travel Tips for Kolkata (Calcutta)

Cows in the street

by georeiser

The Hindus consider the cows in India as holy and they are allowed to freely roam the cities whatever traffic around. This looks strange to foreigners, but you will get used to it. It is always like that everywhere you go. The hindus believe the cows are wise and show a motherly calm.

Rabindra Sarovar Lake of Ballygunje

by goutammitra

This is one of the lungs of Kolkata city, but the condition of the lake and the environment is in dilapidated condition. The visit to the lake is highly refreshing but the slum dwellers settled all over the lake has made it an open air public toilet and washing lake. Any time of the day, one can notice that tons of clothes are being washed, people bath with soaps, the pathways are very dirty and smells badly. Though , there are several posh clubs located with in the lake, like Calcutta Rowing Club, The Lake Club, The University Rowing Club, The Anderson Swimming club no one has come forward to keep it clean. The lake is full of Hyacinth, the gardens are dirty, the seats are broken or fully occupied by vagabonds, rug pickers. In the evening time when the night falls, it turns out in to a den of criminals. There is no serious effort by Calcutta police or Kolkata Municipal Corporation to keep it clean or vice free. Only a hand picked of policemen are seen in the evening time, who continuously harass the couples either for sitting close or sitting late.

In the early 1920s, the Calcutta Improvement Trust (CIT), a body responsible for developmental work in the Kolkata metropolitan area, acquired about 192 acres (0.78 km2) of marshy jungles. Their intention was to develop the area for residential use – improving the roads, raising and levelling some of the adjacent land and building lakes and parks. Excavation work was undertaken with the plan of creating a huge lake. Originally known as Dhakuria Lake, in May 1958, CIT renamed the lake as Rabindra Sarovar, as a tribute to the great Bengali writer and Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore.

Buses

by Rupanworld

Buses of Calcutta are the cheapest mode of travel, not only compared to the other transport modes in the city but also in comparison to any transportation mode in any Indian city. A bus ticket for major distances within the city would cost you around Rs. 4.50 to Rs. 8, depending upon the distance. There are also chartered buses for some routes, which will cost you between Rs. 10 to Rs. 20. However, a word of caution here, the buses of Kolkata are well known for their rash driving. So while boarding on or boarding off, please take care. The driver might be in a hurry.

Chinese Food Made by Chinese for Chinese!!!

by goutammitra about SHUN LI CHINESE RESTAURANT OF TANGRA.

In our quest for better Chinese food we discovered this place Shun Li ( smooth Sailing) yesterday. We got the tip from Mr.Star Zinkojai, Vice President, Holcim Thailand, who is right now posted at Kolkata with our co.

The restaurant is run by Matthew Chen and his sister Mitchell Wong. They cater mostly to the Chinese people, who live there and visiting foreigners. The food is cooked by Mitchell and her Mother. So the taste is just great and very authentic Chinese above all this place is not very crowded so you can just order our food and relax. It will be better if you leave the choice to Matthew.

We became very friendly and we also invited them to have Bengali food with us some day. We had Spinach Curry from Hakka region, vegetable Prawn, Choi sui fish, Mixed noodle with gravy, Plain Rice and washed it down with Black Label beer. the food was too much for us and we had to bring back some of the delicay back home.

The food was simply superb compared to other places of Tangra, we had chinese Food. we have decided to visit this place again and again.
