No matter how much culturally aloof I remain, this time every year I wish I could just be in Kolkata, even if it’s for a week. It is the time of the year when we Bengalis celebrate our biggest festival, Durga Puja.
To make things slightly better, I bumped onto a local channel from Kolkata (ABP Ananda) which streams live TV. At least I can catch some of the festivities. Wish the transmission was a little less choppy.
People don’t realize what they have until they lose it 🙁
