Postcard Series: Arrival at Kolkata Airport | India

March 07, 2014


Finally, India is just beyond this modern airport. True enough, as we flagged one of Kolkata's signature old yellow cabs, we were transported back in time and saw a chaotic meshing of the modern and the past, the bustling and the serene. Highlighted by human and animal activities—coming from all directions—seamlessly moving with tenacious force, watching the sight that greeted us, even from the inside of a careening cab, my senses felt it as forceful as being on the receiving end of a left hook, an uppercut and a jab.
