In Half Certainly one of my India journey video information, I start my travels in India with Calcutta (Kolkata). India had lengthy been on my bucket listing of nations to journey to on this planet, and in April, 2013, I lastly made it there, beginning with Calcutta, with no higher purpose than the very fact was I knew so little about that a part of the nation.
Calcutta was as soon as the capital of the British Empire in India, and right this moment it is house to over 14 million individuals, which suggests the town itself is a crowded, dense, loud, however endlessly fascinating place to discover. On this video I discover the alleyways and grand buildings that make up B.B.D. Bagh, the world the place the town was based.
After trying out a parade (a quite common prevalence I used to be to later be taught) and grabbing a roadside cup of chai, I cease on the house of famed poet and author Rabindranath Tagore, the primary Indian to win the Nobel Prize, and whose house is a good place to study Calcutta’s cultural historical past.
