Of course I couldn't finish the whole thing. But I tried. I held on to it till I reached my hotel. I had said my final goodbyes now, exchanged Instagram handles (it is the new BBM, no?) with these wonderful women. And as Pramod dropped me off at the hotel, he was sure I was ready to retire for the night. But was I? It was only 8 pm!
I told him to give me an hour, to get over my food coma and I'd be on my feet recovered and ready to indulge some more. How could I go to bed without some rasgulla? His expression was again priceless. How could I go to bed without some rasgulla ?
And like I promised I was down in time to hit the streets of Calcutta! Now unfortunately by the time we went scouting, most of these sweet stores were shut. I begged him, "There must be some place, no?", "20 minutes away, madam?" He replied a little hesitant. And I jumped at the hope of finding some Bengali sweets at what was now almost 10 pm.
And we did! An old store that was over fifty years old, stood in a corner far away from the city lights. I picked up enough for a party of five or more. Didn't you realise, I skipped dinner?
That night, I fell asleep FaceTiming my folks at home and my very amused fiancé. "HOW DID YOU MANAGE TO EAT ALL OF THAT?", They asked.
I responded by falling asleep in a deep food coma.
To know how I spent Day 2 , look out for my next post!
