Unfolding Old Kolkata – Photo Stories

Time has no divisions to mark its passage; there is never a thunderstorm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.

After the amazing journey of the Vizag-Araku tour, we had only 1 day left in our hand. So there is no meaning of wasting the day inside the hotel room. Though we all were tired enough after completing whole day tour on day 2 and Vizag-Araku tour on day 3. Still our feet dragged us for exploring more new places of vizag.
