Why I love Calcutta?

– Its the place of my birth
-My mom is from there
-My mamas-mamis and nani stay there
-My hubby is from there
-My in-laws stay there
-My friends A & Pwhom I can meet up with
-Its the most amazing place for street food and street shopping
-You get the best poochkas there
-The jhalmoori is to die for and so are the egg rolls
-The momos are amazing and the loochi aloo dum is great
-The yummy egg chow and the lovely torka
-The amazingly low priced stuff you can buy there..be it the house wearing pants or the low cost t shirts..the low priced earrings and the lovely bags you get there
-The slow moving trams, the lovely buildings, the fast fast metro!!!
I have been going there almost every 2 years since my childhood and my perception of the city hasnt changed a bit..though after my marriage..my hubby introduced me to the new facets of Calcutta..but ylove for the city never ceases…
Wow I could write a poetry on Calcutta…..I am going there December end yipeeeeeee!!!!!
Edited to Add: Oh how could I forget the wonderful college street my dad used to take me during almost every visit of ours…hubby has promised to continue the tradition this year as well yipeeeeee again !!1
