Streets of Kolkata

Kolkata, also known as City of Joy to many, is a highly polluted place and very dusty, busy and noisy! Cars, taxis, trams, men-pulled rickshaws and pedestrians make up the bulk of the road. I found it interesting that while there is so much of poverty and begging kids around, there are also the equally wealthy travelling comfortable in their air-conditioned cars or eating lavishly at some fine dining restaurants. Though, I swore never to go back to Kolkata again after a terrible lung infection of carbon monoxide, at the point of typing this, I think I will go back – it is indeed a love-hate relationship with this place. I am going to go back there again and again until I get Joy!
