 Rickshaw puller:


Person cooking Roti out of  a closed office on sunday. Sply the Choolah (stove) that he is using to cook it.


Monkey dancing( on tune of Ek pal ka jeena .. 🙂 )


  • I could see the oldest Indian tradition alive in Kolkata.
  • I enjoyed Tea served in small clay pots, 1 rupee poori served wid aloo sabji (2-5 rupees i guess)
  • I really felt glad when people offered free gol-gappas, amlas (jst to munch) out of affection towards my kid
  • We got chance to sit on rickshaw (not the one pulled by a person but the actual paddling rickshaw), it was fun. And roamed the market near to Mitia bruz.

We attended one marraige there, where we could not even guess who the dullah (groom) was, as he himself got bizi in serving the guests for reception dinner  :).
