this is Kolkata

Timepass and AddaaIMG_0035
CMC ka Gaddha
Slow moving Tram
Causes traffic Jam,

Didi o Dada
Laal paar saare or Prada
Girlfriend keisshhh
Yummy Chingri Fish

Boroline cream
KKR ke team
Mamta di ka dum
Roshogolla and Chomchom

Aaloo Chop
Mithun da ka flop
Road side Jhaal mudi
Its a heaven for foodies

Bengal Bandh
Sade fish ke gandh
Humidity causes sweat
Ambassadors fat bonnette

Footpath ke bheed
Chaashni se meethi kheer
Mishti doi and Shondesh
Chit fund scam.. no trace

Crazy soccer fans
Rickshaawalas vs minivans
Mitti ka cup and chai ke chuski
Ganga jee mein paap dhone waali dubki

Eden Gardens ka cricket
Ganguli ke wicket
Puchkas and Golgappe
Elgin road ke Pujabi tappe

Chinatown ka chow mein
is more popular then Cheen
Ritwik, Mrinal and Ray
It’s a city of lights, as Tagore would say

College street ke book shops
Coffee house ka group talks
Howrah bridge ka maddening chaos
Fir bhi… fit hai boss

There’s order in disorder
There’s a silence in the scream
Ye seher ek Atheist of believer banata hai
God hai, nahin to es city ko aur kaun chalta hai?

Aaram pehle baad mein kaam
Netaji, Nazrul, Uttam Kumar
Ye bas reh gaye hain metro stations ke naam
Yahan kisi ko kuch nai aata jaata
Ek alag si duniya hai yahan
this is Kolkata.
