In Part One of my India journey video information, I start my travels in India with Calcutta (Kolkata). India had lengthy been on my bucket checklist of nations to journey to on the planet, and in April, 2013, I lastly made it there, beginning with Calcutta, with no higher purpose than the actual fact was I knew so little about that a part of the nation.
Calcutta was as soon as the capital of the British Empire in India, and at the moment it is dwelling to over 14 million folks, which implies the town itself is a crowded, dense, loud, however endlessly fascinating place to discover. In this video I discover the alleyways and grand buildings that make up B.B.D. Bagh, the world the place the town was based.
After testing a parade (a quite common prevalence I used to be to later study) and grabbing a roadside cup of chai, I cease on the dwelling of famed poet and author Rabindranath Tagore, the primary Indian to win the Nobel Prize, and whose dwelling is a superb place to find out about Calcutta’s cultural historical past.
