The joy of picking up up a navy blue and fuchsia pink sweatshirt from a pile of cardigans for men in the forever-busy streets of New Market. I have known that joy. Dramatic much? Ha!
If you’ve been to New Market in Calcutta, you know how it is to walk past the Grand Oberoi Hotel way. With hawkers on both sides screaming ‘chori ka maal’ and ‘yeh le lo sister’ and people pushing you all over the place, I never know whether to be extra careful about my bag or save myself from pinches in the wrong places.
My friend and I decided to fight through the crowd the other day and check out the cardigans being sold on the streets. Spotting this pretty piece was my moment of victory. And the shopkeeper said something like “Itni pyari hasi deke, aap mujhe lut rehe ho.” He charged 300 bucks.
Sharing pictures of a recent blogger’s meet. We had two in December by the way. I could give you a detailed account of our discussion, but then again I’d have to make you sign a consent form confirming you’re above 18! We chose to go to Victoria Memorial because we wanted to show Megha around the City of Joy. So you see, we, Calcutta bloggers, are good hosts too. I don’t need to mention how much fun it was, do I?
