Kolkata Unplugged....local sights and sounds...and memories...
Second Hooghly bridge.....approached from Hastings side...where we used to stay in Jubilee lines...accomodation, houses...British type...with huge wooden balconies all around.... .....the looming Howrah bridge, caught unawares.....in a smart shower..... ......the queue infront of the ladies' counters...... some things don't change.... ....is this the same girl who sold me 6 limes for ten rupees as I used to hurry to catch the 4.40 local back home to the suburbs from Calcutta university... .... the Howrah station....time stands still...it seems.....only not so crowded as its not office or college time....remember the crowds just swallowing us up and carrying us into the train...like a wave...the strategising to get a seat by minutely psycho analysing every turn of the head of the seated passengers.....almost felt Dickensian....trying to read the minds and guessing backgrounds of all my co passengers...maybe a loving husband at home or a spat with a diabolic mother in law.... .....the local vendors.....products have changed....they seem more jaded and unattractive now.......
