What can I say? Really, what can I say? Thank god its not like other Hindi movies and finishes in 2 hours. Thank God for that part. Another hour of this movie and I'd become a chain smoker. I was shocked to see that we had a packed hall before the movie started, but by the interval time the two Aunties sitting beside us left. And at the the end of the movie people jumped off their seats and dashed out of the hall. Quite a few even lit up straight out of the Mall. Now if you still want to go watched it because you just love John especially when he's baring his bare body quite a bit or then you have a thing for Ayesha Takia, be my guest. Oh! All The Best.

After New Town, I headed to one of my favourite places, The Strand Road along the Banks of the River Hooghly that runs between Vidyasagar Setu (New Hooghly Bridge) and Rabindra Setu (the Original Howrah Bridge). The Princep Ghat with the Vidyasagar Setu towering over it in the background is always a picturesque sight. And the Howrah Bridge in the distance is an awesome piece of engineering.
The Lung of Kolkata, The Maidan is a paradise for young boys as a cricket ground, families come there for their weekly outings giving kids the opportunity for some horse riding and fresh air, not to mention the vast assortment of pav bhaji, puchka, bhel puri, papri chat, masala cola, etc.
The Kolkata skyline is impressive and so is the Victoria Memorial peeping out from over the line of trees.
Finally not to forget that my red Swift that gets me around to all these wonderful sights. The car has been doing me good service with a mileage of over 10 kmpl ever since I got it. Ofcourse the sad part is the innumerable scratches and nicks it has accumulated on the streets of Kolkata.

The last day of the Pujas culminates with Bishwarjan (immersion of Goddess in the River Hooghly). Sindur Khela at the Pandal before the Goddess leaves and Dancing to the beats of the Dhols is customary and noisy as ever. But all said its a must do if you have to complete the life cycle of the Pujas. Visiting Babu Ghat on the banks of the Hooghly to watch the immersion is an experience in-itself.
