Kolkata through my eyes....

Hello there,


I cannot just write anything these days. All the documents are being sent to the recycle bin. So I am posting pics here from my trips to Kolkata. I love the city now and wish I had a home there! Maybe someday...

3rd last pic-
that's not howrah bridge...
that's Bali bridge.
(did you take the dakhsineshwar-belur math boat ride? boatmen always play this prank with tourists :P just take it lightly... who doesn't know how howrah bridge looks like???)

A river is the soul of a city.Throughout the world it is true.
You captured the essence of Kolkata. and I am proud of you. You HAVE missed some others in kolkata Nikita.coffeee House, The lanes and the byelanes of romantic North,The Jogubabur bazar, The Festivals etc. I shall see you when you come next time . The kali mondors , The kumhartolly etc etc etc.

Nice Pics Nikita...

I like the perspective of your pics. Seems like a really steady hand and a nice eye for details.

All your pics portray the Ganges in the background lingering in some form or the other. Nice way to tell I saw a city and a river but I could not figure out which depended on the other. Loved this part of your pics!

you have captured the city beautifully, esp the river and the dakshineshwar temple. The city does have a huge hauge history and at times it just over flows with shots like these
