Kolkata is called “The City Of Joy”, and it is very deserving of this title. The people of Kolkata are some of the most gracious and hospitable people in all of India.
The city itself is a city of contrast. The rich are living right next to the poorest of poor, more people, the streets are full of life and chaotic, cows and dogs are on every street corner, the air is infused with the smell of curry and smoke, the concrete is daunting, the Bengali language is considered the sweetest language in the world, and the colors of the world are painted on every building.
