CALCUTTA- Queen Victoria Memorial
Remembering Its Colonial Days
Calcutta, the capital of the state of West Bengal in the Eastern Part of India was as everybody knows the seat of East India Company and the British Ruled India from Calcutta now renamed Kolkata. That was because of the Port on the Bay of Bengal and other aspects. I am not the Historian type but let me share some photos taken by me recently. Here are the ones which will remind us of the Queen Victorian Era of Indian History. Here are photos the Victoria Memorial, roads in front of the memorial where the horse carriage is a Tourist Attraction (not for regular carrying). The green fields is the HEART AND LUNGS OF CALCUTTA-- a vst green belt of grass covered land where people play football, cricket, walk for health..... and yes also find love...
