Get To Sundarbans & Appreciate Hardship Like Bourdain
An intrepid traveller with a quick and sharp wit, Bourdain was an explorer of food, international culture and diverse human conditions. On his No Reservations visit to Kolkata, he took a trip to the Sundarbans and stayed in the island of Bali. While he relished the local food of rice, brinjal fry, dal, scallion sabzi, bhetki and prawn curry, his wasn’t the first-world tinted gaze that was acutely awareness of the differences in living conditions. Instead, he schooled us city dwellers to appreciate hardwork and the back-breaking labour that the locals have to put in as a way of sustenance. Follow Bourdain’s trail to this deltaic region and experience this culture first hand. Check here, here and here for more info to plan your trip.
