It all started with a friend suggesting that we take a heritage walk through the streets of old Kolkata organized by Padhaaro. While the former capital of British India has evolved a lot after Independence in 1947, the city's rich history is still preserved in bits and pieces in its architecture, culture and street furniture, most of which are visible in the old parts of the city, i.e., primarily North Kolkata. The photos below were captured on the journey. Enjoy the charm of this beautiful city!
