The “city of joy” was built by the British Empire. Yes, I am talking about Kolkata. It was formerly known as Calcutta and it was the Capital State of British India. The city offers life to various colours and religions. Kolkata is my hometown. “Park Street” is the street I know very well, and I am sure most people residing there know the place.
The street continues from Chowringhee Road, popularly known as JL Nehru Road, to seven point crossing. The distance must be around 2.5 kms. In this gap of 2.5 kilo metres, lie the most important tourist spots of historical importance. I visit the street on the occasion of Christmas and New Year’. The street is one of the busiest places on these occasions.
On normal days, the street is very busy. The two renowned colleges lie on the opposite side of the road. One being St. Xavier’s College, and another, the Loretto College. Stephen court Building, the Plaza Hotel and many other important landmarks are present on the street side. There are renowned restaurants like Arsalan, Oudh to eat good food. The famous South Park Cemetery is situated at the end of this road. From Christmas to new year’s day, the street is lit up with lights and bulbs. You see locals selling santa caps, small christmas trees, horns etc. The street smells like a bakery because every shop sells cakes and cookies. Everyone is with their loved ones and enjoying the day the most.
The memory of this street is priceless. Every Christmas, I make it a point to visit this place. Every time its is a new experience. The lightings are so beautiful that you cannot take your eyes off them.
