The City That Got Left Behind

The City That Got Left Behind

Kolkata is a city that charms and shocks at the same time. A myriad of flamboyant crimson of durga puja, distinct cacophony of fisherman selling Hilsa, the perfectly arranged rows with heads bowing for sajdah every Friday, Children playing football, makeshift shelter of thousands of slum dwellers, the whistling of the trams, abode to the most beautiful pieces of sangeet, literature and home to nobel laureates..this City has it all.


Our city has borne witness to the partition and renaissance, rise and fall of industries and has seen immense struggle in the last few decades. The debilitating standard of life..high crime against women, scams, gundagardi, overcrowding, horrendous traffic, crumbling structures, unsanitary settlements, high rates of electricity, water crisis, lack of jobs has left Kolkata worn out.

The city yearns to Revive.. to Reclaim.. to Restart.. to Reboot
