Densely populated, Kolkata (Calcutta) is a fascinating metro city of India with some rare sense of beauty. It is regarded as India’s intellectual, artistic and cultural capital. People are certainly a friendly bunch and Bengali humour is renowned throughout the country. Kolkata is not as ancient as Delhi and is largely a British creation when in 1686 they abandoned Hooghly as their trade post and moved downriver to Sutanati, Govindpur and Kalikata. Kolkata takes its name from the last one.
The legendary actor Uttam Kumar lived here since about 1963 until his death in 1980. Rajesh Khanna was a huge fan of him and always met him here whenever he visited Kolkata.
