I have been living in Kolkata for 5-6 years now. I came here back in 2013 when I was getting started with my college. And Kolkata was where I wanted to be, given its proximity to my hometown and it being the hub of CA students.
I remember my intial days in Kolkata, how I was having a difficult time moulding in this overwhelming city life. How I had to ask again and again what people said, when I didn't understood bengali. How difficult it was to commute because even the buses had large bengali letters written all over them. How all the corners of this city looked so similar and yet so different in their own way.
Recently I was in a conversation with a friend who left Kolkata after being in relationship with this city for 6 years and she told me how, badly sometimes, she misses this city.
I have tried to list down things in this list that keep my love alive for this city.
