Superb samrat :cheers:. The park street end near mullickbazar is becoming hotspot for commercial/business activity. Till few years back, there was not much activity on this stretch. I would love to see the whole park street stretch till PC become business/commercial hub.
Right. And even beyond PC, The Connector till Bypass is fast developing into a prized commercial hub. So by 2015, we can see the entire stretch from Park Street/Chowringhee point all the way to EM Bypass (almost 7-8kms) as a prime commercial zone.

Looking at the photos above it was quite striking to see that there were no autos/ 3 wheelers on the streets of kolkata.. only those classic Yellow Ambys..

Autos are there very much in Kolkata, but they don't run on the basis of meter. Instead they run in a shuttle system between any two localities on a fixed fare basis, with each auto accommodating a maximum of 4 passengers.

Now, the photos posted here are from Chowringhee, Park Street, BBD Bag areas where autos are not allowed to ply. When I post more photos from other localities you'll find plenty of autos in them.
