The Bally Khal StoryThis really needs special mention here, particularly for first timers on budget travel.Belur Math is just over two kilometers from Bally Khal which is like probably the next bus stop. That is why we hopped into a bus. I was not sure if it was a better idea to board a Toto as the driver would dilly dally that short distance hoping to pick other passengers. I was so wrong there. The bus was worse as it stopped roughly 14 times to pick passengers.Due to slow moving traffic, this approach to stop a bus anywhere and everywhere is routine exercise. Once you know that, your blood pressure goes normal and you attain nirvana.Visiting Hours As we reached Belur Math after the visiting hours (6:30 AM to 12:00 PM), we had to wait till 3:30 PM for the gates to open again till 8:30 PM.Exploring AroundWe had a quick look around Vivekananda University which had a huge auditorium with some ongoing preparation for a gathering, Medha Bhavan, a unit for studies on Indian Heritage and one dedicated for Mathematics.
