Calcutta – a set of random images

A series of pictures taken at random in Calcutta during the last two weeks. There is no thread nor are the pictures connected in anyway . . . except for the fact that the common theme is Calcutta.

New Town while coming home from the airport. I’ve been hearing that it is to be named Jyoti Basu Nagar. Wouldn’t it be apt?

Built on fertile multi-crop land and handed to developers – throwing aside the idea of the land ceiling act – who are building condos that sell for close to a Crore. A real case of neo-liberalization?

Next to the Race Course. A green Calcutta ?

Park Street on a Sunday!

Esplanade … in front of the new Police Memorial

Taken during a brief lull from the rains. The Esplanade Mansions under the azure blue sky.

A heritage building on Park Street.

Devilled Crabs at Mocambo
