Rajbhavan in kolkata initially built as a seat of imperial power was constructed at a distance from the actual metropolis. it followed a neo-classical style with baroque overtone. the lions flank and iron gate gives it a distinct grandeur.

Childhood monsters with green body, large horns and big moustache is what caught the attention at first. then noticing the bengali art form, hindu deities with their bahon with typical symbols of childhood fables. this taxi became an iconic art installation which not only brought our childhood back but revived a lost tradition of bengali art which we were used to see in old prints of thakurmar jhuli and lalkamal, nilkamal.

Palki in old calcutta was one of the chief mode of transportation available for contemporary elites. palki is still being used in west bengal as a part of elite tradition and for the purpose of marriage. the word palki has been derived from sanskrit 'palanka', it became a favorable transport for the british as well. to know more please check out today's story. or simply go to our bio and open the link to blog pandoolipi.

Tabla is said to have originated 500 years ago, though references of mridanga which is a similar instrument to tabla has been found in vedic period. recorded history says that amir khusrau made the use of tabla very famous..

Calcutta's haunted house: there remained hundred of stories regarding ghosts of kolkata from the very beginning. national library, hesting's house and other old palaces of the city have been rumoured to be associated with horror stories, old letters, manuscripts told about paranormal activity, sudden death and incidents which no one could explain. instead of claiming the authenticity of those tales we are providing some stories that will amaze you. link is in the story. do check out and let us know your opinion.
