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 earth, 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 as we speak it is house to over 14 million folks, which implies 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 town was based.
After testing a parade (a quite common incidence I used to be to later study) and grabbing a roadside cup of chai, I cease on the house of famed poet and author Rabindranath Tagore, the primary Indian to win the Nobel Prize, and whose house is a superb place to study Calcutta’s cultural historical past.
