One day one of my school friends planned a visit in their college- St Xavier’s, Kolkata that stands amidst Park Street. The crowd and their dressing sense was not at all over the top but was so real, as if each people have dressed up basis their personality. You will find so many varieties of dress-ups in that campus. She took me to the campus auditorium which held a lot of different peer groups practicing variety of activities- from fashion shows, to theatres till dance and music extravaganza! Amazed, I asked my friend whether they are practising these art forms for any upcoming festival and to my utter surprise she stated that this is a normal evening for the “Xavierians” as they do not need a festival to practice their passion! Now I know what all is missing in my Delhi college campus! Rightfully, this city is the cultural hub of the country because every city might have a singer, a footballer, a cricketer or a dancer in it; but this city has thousands of such talented bunch in all most all the houses of the city!
On the 20th day of my Kolkata trip, I had mixed emotions, something that was least expected after visiting a city. I did not fall in love with any one human being out there, but I believe I fell in love with all of them! I did not understand whether am I leaving behind my roots or am I taking my roots along with me! Whether am I a stranger in Delhi or am I a “Delhiite” who would love to go back to the land which made her encounter with her soul!
Only then did I understand that I cannot be lured by a man who awaits me to snuggle in his arms but of course his land! After all a vagabond fall in love with the land and not the men!
Well, even while composing this piece I had to cut short of my precious experience of the 20 days, but have skimmed through that preciousness which gifted a new “ME”! So would you still assume Kolkata to be an overrated city full of imperfections or would you visit this land which has love and warmth intertwined in all its individuals? Believe me, if you want to feel the love- the real emotion that binds the human race, then pack your bags and visit this place of India and feel for yourself what love is to them!
