Staring across the windows of your car, making way through a narrow and crowded road in Kolkata, you read 'GT Road' or 'the Grant trunk road'. Yes, the same road built by Chandragupta Maurya two millenniums before, rebuilt by Shershah and then by the British. When you're in Kolkata, you walk through the streets of time, beautifully carved out of histories, histories unwilling to be buried under the invincible clutches of time.
To see trams run through the rails that have been laid from the past is like taking a ride through history. The fact that trams find a space in today's busiest roads of Kolkata itself is the proof that past and present coexist in the 'city of joy'.
