A rare and nice aerial view of BBD Bagh - the government nerve centre [though huge sections of the govt depts have shifted to Salt Lake and even Camac Street has a new govt tower]. This is also the old CBD.

You can see the red Writers' Building in the northern corner.

I tried to look up the net for the official website. Found one. But there is no hyperlink for this hotel (known as Manor Floatel, Kolkata) !

The Howrah Station

Kolkata - Howrah are Amby Taxi land. Note the Blue Arrow Indica A/C taxis. I have heard that this company is becoming popular.

Nice shots there Suncity ! Howrah Station interior looks amazingly clean in the picture.
The Bule Arrow a/c taxis are very few in number right now. They are bound to become popular in a hot & humid place like Kolkata. Imagine alighting from an a/c chair car coach and then having to board one of those filthy yellow taxis - then you get stuck in traffic with the exhaust of the bus next to you pouring into your cab !

Cool pics. Kolkata is not as bad as people make it out to be.

Beauty is in the details my dear friend! It's the smaller things like cleanliness, orderliness and maintenance that gives the cities their reputations. And that's where Indian cities fall off the mark. That aside, we have enough eye-candies to attract the virtual tourist.

Beautiful Pics from Kolkata

Hi folks...am back after a long vacation in California.
Great to see some new members of the SSC-India forum

Here are some pictures of Kolkata that I collected from various places...ENJOY!:

Starting off with the beautiful
Victoria Memorial







Maybe we should send these lions to gaurd our borders with our jawans instead of them gaurding the gates of VM


Night shots






Maidan/Downtown/Chowringee Area



Kolkata's tallest building (maybe not any more - Hiland Park???) undergoing renovation. According to info posted by Suncity some time back, the building is going to get a blue/white facade.


Birla Planetarium






St. Paul's Chathedral




Cityscapes/Streetscapes

Vidyasagar Setu


Park Street


Whats with the jay-walking, folks?!?


Sealdah Railway Station at night


Food Court at City Center Mall


Red Road - Shift every car to the left by a foot and traffic would be perfectly in its lanes!!!


The colorful Gariahat market


Fabindia Store - A nationwide chain of stores selling ethnic Indianwear


A streetside hawker


And finally, the Writer's Building, the seat of the West Bengal Govt

Nice collection indeed. All these recent Kolkata threads are very informative; I used to know practically nothing about Kolkata.
