During my recent visit to Kolkata it was my evening hub. For my work I was staying in Salt Lake and my hotel (Ayash) was little more than 100 meters away. So most evening my mom and I used to go there. For an upscale township like Salt lake, it is strategically located. The hub is mostly thronged by young people with a good mix of shopping options, eateries and a multiplex (Inox). It also has an amphitheater for mini concerts and cultural functions. Lucky to see singer Anupam Roy performing. He was performing as part of Zee Bangla (TV Channel) love nite. He has some nice Bengali numbers and popular hits. By the way, Anupam has a Bangalore connection. He used to earlier work at Texas Instruments, Bangalore.
Kolkata is a shopper’s paradise. Even in malls, you will be able to find stuffs at better price than Bangalore. I know, I know, Bangalore is probably the costliest city in India and we should not be bragging about prices in Bangalore verses Kolkata. We bought few shoes and chappals for mom and myself at the Khadims. Roaming around the mall was good time pass. Found Momo center at one corner of the mall but it was nowhere near the tasty momos offered at Green Onion, Bangalore. Tried some ice cream at Kwality Walls. For dinner there were many options but decided to go for KFC.
Kolkata is photogenic in possibly every angle. And here too I got attracted to click around. Pleased to get some nice shots! Way back to the hotel was like nice night stroll.
