Kolkata, or Calcutta as it was known till lately was popularized as the City of Joy..the City of Palaces… was idolized by the policy makers of Singapore.
Today, it lies as a heap of memories, with the trade and commerce shifting to other cities, the political focus shifting to other parts of the country… trade and commerce at an all time decline. More than that, the “palaces” that once characterised Calcutta, lies unmaintained and unattended to. It is failing to produce political and literary figures, and we keep counting on names from past and near past..
What we need to look forward to is the future… ask from our politicians, the prospects of future, policies for the same and not what had been done earlier.
