"I did love Kolkata as a mysterious woman, the beloved, my mother… My world is Kolkata… I do want to live, but I am certain that the death of Kolkata will bring my end." (Sukanto Bhattacharya)
The alleys and streets of Kolkata has it's own unique language of communication. During my journey in the world of medicine and photography, Kolkata (or Calcutta) taught me to pause, look and move in it's roads, streets and alleys. And in this process, the city transformed me to an observer of life and environment in the street; in another way, this city taught me to become a ‘clinical’ observer. Tricks of decisive moments in street photography is not my forte, but through it's alleys, Kolkata taught me the clinical and social psychology of applied photography and metaphors of life… And it's becoming an irresistable desire to explore Kolkata, shelled inside an other city of Calcutta.
