Bengali Literary Heritage Bus Tour


I was privileged enough to lead a group of about 60 eminent Kolkatans, including eminent writer and columnist Ranjan Bandhopadhyay, through the winding streets of north Kolkata past the houses of stalwarts of Bengali literature.

The tour stared from the Apeejay House in Park Street at about 2 pm, with Let Us Goas the heritage tour partner.
