O Majhi…


I always keep coming back to Kolkata whenever i am confused as to what to put up on this blog. And 9 out of 10 times, i come across an image that i want to share. Seen here is the Vidyasagar Setu which was also featured on the blog entry Peek-A-Boo where i used two pillars of the Prinsep Memorial for framing.

Prinsep Memorial in Kolkata is situated very close to the Hooghly. On the banks of the river, you come across these really old-style boats which are not engine powered. They have a semi- circular covering atop them. I was instantly reminded of this very famous Kishore Kumar song from one of my favourite films – Amar Prem, when i first saw the whole setting around the bank. Life on the banks seems quite oblivious to the vagaries of time.
And then you look up, to see the cables of the Vidyasagar Setu with its bright lights that bring you back to the present.
It is this juxtaposition of the contemporary with the past that makes Kolkata so irresistable for a photography enthusiast.
Take Care,
Ciao
