Well, we're sure you all agree that north Kolkata has a charm of it own, especially Bowbazar that has seen so many faiths, cultures and tastes as a whole. Now a major gold hub, Bowbazar is one of those places that the Europeans and babus of the bygone era often visited for their own interests.
It's the place that saw the nautch girls and the rise of the kothas and heard the beautiful voices of Indian classical music and the sound of the ghungroo. So, why not explore the area through this heritage walk being organised by Kolkata Explorers on Saturday, February 29? The walk will start from the Bank of India branch on BB Ganguly Street near P.C. Chandra Jewellers and take you through the red light area so you understand how the city has evolved from the time when the Kolkata port was set up.
