Where the morning of Kolkata begins with the rattling sound of tram bell, it is quite natural how tram is connected with the cultural heritage of our city. Getting a chance to explore the world of old tramways and knowing more facts about trams was a golden opportunity for us. We heard about the heritage transport museum, Smaranika – Kolkata’s Only Tram Museum standing at Esplanade.
One year before in the morning, we were traveling to Howrah station by cab to catch the train. When our cab was crossing the strand road, suddenly we got a mixed floral aroma. Immediately we peeped out of our cab and became so amazed to see the huge collection of the flowers. That day we decided to explore this market whenever we get the chance. So a few days back we finally explored. Let’s give an image of the scenario of Mullick Ghat Flower Market (Kolkata).
“Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine to the soul.” The famous quote was written by Luther Burbank
Before starting today’s blog one thing we would like to know from you, readers…In today’s world of machines, electricity and all, who wants to go back to that era when there were no machines for carving a stone or wood, no spray colors or different techniques to paint a canvas but had many unique ideas of creativity which even today astonish us. Hasta Shilpa Mela – Kolkata
When anyone says Kolkata the first thing that will come to your mind is Howrah Bridge – Iconic Bridge in India. If you are traveling by train and your train stops at Howrah Station you have to cross India’s busiest cantilever bridge “Howrah Bridge”. You might get bored by the crowd and traffic jams on the bridge but you will experience the Kolkata’s pride that is the Howrah Bridge. You will see street vendors on the bridge and even the stagnant vehicles giving horn frequently. But don’t lose patience because you are in Kolkata, the tireless metropolitan city.
