In Part One of my India journey video information, I start my travels in India with Calcutta (Kolkata). India had lengthy been on my bucket record of nations to journey to on the earth, and in April, 2013, I lastly made it there, beginning with Calcutta, with no higher motive than the actual fact was I knew so little about that a part of the nation.
Calcutta was as soon as the capital of the British Empire in India, and at present it is residence to over 14 million individuals, which implies the town itself is a crowded, dense, loud, however endlessly fascinating place to discover. In this video I discover the alleyways and grand buildings that make up B.B.D. Bagh, the world the place the town was based.
After trying out a parade (a quite common incidence I used to be to later be taught) and grabbing a roadside cup of chai, I cease on the residence of famed poet and author Rabindranath Tagore, the primary Indian to win the Nobel Prize, and whose residence is a good place to study Calcutta’s cultural historical past.
