Description
Introduction

Kolkata (Calcutta) is the capital of the state of West Bengal and one of the largest and most interesting cities in the world. Situated on the eastern bank of the Hooghly, a major distributary of the river Ganga, Kolkata is the only metropolis on India's 'River of Life'. It is also the gateway to the entire east and northeast of India.

Three sleepy villages called Kalikata, Sutanuti and Gobindopur were combined together by the British East India Company to form a trade-post more than 300 years ago (1690). From then onwards started the city's journey till it became the 'Second City of the British Empire'. Colonial era relics and ambience still exist in this vast, populous city, which combines chaos and continuity, poverty and beauty, neglect and regeneration at one and the same time. Culture, clubs and cuisine are the same time. Culture, clubs and cuisine are the three 'C's' of Calcutta that impress and attract visitors.

Kolkata has stepped into the 21st century with great zest – chic malls, huge condominiums, info-tech parks, and a pulsating nightlife define the new face of the city.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
