Kolkata city tour IMG 7513


The Color of Chaos
You come here to feel the vibe of Kolkata, and it overwhelms you. It swiftly engages you as a traveller. Soon you give in to a moving montage of faces and facelessness, the heritage and the contemporary; rabbit run and time warp at the same time.
We take you through a planet where heritage is lived every day by the commoner. The glowing hue of the setting sun in the Hooghly river suddenly looks romantic despite the haze and dust. In front of you, an intoxicating city keeps flowing – a city that has seen a lot –World War II, The Famine of 1943, The Independence, The Partition. It has seen blood on the streets and spirits of solidarity. Kolkata has breathed poetry at the same time.
For Ginsberg, Kolkata is a city where people worship poets as minor gods. La-Pierre lovingly called it 'A City of Joy'. Pele and Maradona came here to share their passion for football with the people of Kolkata. M F Hussein painted on a roadside wall. And Pete Seeger shared his countless folk songs with the city's music lovers under an open sky.
Kolkata – as the proverb goes – is not the mere name of a city. It is a different space altogether.
