Longing, Belonging: An Outsider at Home in Calcutta – Bishwanath Ghosh

‘Calcutta was no longer an old piece of furniture in the attic. It was an antique whose value I had realised.’ With these words Bishwanath Ghosh embarks on an exploration of a city that, as a probashi – non-resident Bengali, he has only recently fallen in love with. He probes the lives of its inhabitants – some famous and others faceless – and at the same time strolls along the Hooghly, wanders in and out of Park Street, College Street, Kalighat, Kumartuli, Sonagachhi, even ending up in a dance bar in Salt Lake.With his adventurous spirit and undeniable wit intact, Bishwanath Ghosh pieces together his own unique idea of a unique city.
