“The tiger-haunted jungle which cut off the village of Chowringhee from the river was cleared, and gave way to the wide grassy stretch of the Maidan of which Calcutta is so proud.”

It was a story of red and green frames, green was for thumbs up or like while red was for thumbs down or dislike. Sounds easy, not exactly!!!
Eid – ul – Fitr Nawaz (Prayer)
Nakhoda Masjid and Red Road (Maidan), Calcutta (Kolkata)
“Islam has always been an urban faith, ill at ease with the wilderness; its civilization has always flourished most successfully in the labyrinths of the ancient bazar towns of the East. Certainly there can be no doubt that Islam looks at its most impressive in a great urban cathedral mosque, especially on an occasion like Id.”
William Dalrymple, City of Djinns
Eid – ul – Fitr, also known as the “Feast of Breaking the Fast” is an important Islamic festival celebrated by Muslims worldwide to mark the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. This is a day when Muslims around the world try to show a common goal of unity.

~ Calcutta (Kolkata) 28 October 2012 ~
The pujas are over and the winter chill has already set in and its ideal time for a photowalk in Calcutta (Kolkata). Nikon School India Kolkata photowalk was scheduled at 6:30 am on the 28 October 2012. The meeting point was Victoria Memorial North Gate.
Aksah, my colleague and fellow photo enthusiast, and I reached the venue just Victoria North Gate exactly at 6:30 am. Anindo Basu and Soumyajit Maitra of Nikkon India were already there and so were several fellow participants. The participants consisted of a interesting mix of photographers, starting from first timers to hard core veterans but each carried a Nikon DSLR, starting from low end and out of market models like D60 to the latest high end models of D800. Several participants carried a wide variety of lenses, including third party lenses.
