Kolkata is one of the only few places in the world where hand pulled rickshaws are still used for transportation.
Kolkata experienced one of the heaviest rainfalls this year. I haven’t seen such rainfall in years. Continuous heavy rain. A 3 hour downpour made the city come to a standstill. There is no way the water can drain out. The ponds, lakes and canals are already over flooded.
But the city loves rain. Kids love rain. Its amazing to see the kids enjoying the water logging. Deliberately splashing water and getting wet.
Below is a small video of the water logging in south Kolkata.
The four Day long Jagadhatri Puja was celebrated in Kolkata. Chandannagar is the place to be where Jagadharti Puja is celebrated with great vigor. The idols of Ma are huge and lighting decoration incredible. Jagadhatri Puja is also celebrated with same enthusiasm in Krishnanagar and Rishra.
Here are some pictures of Jagadhatri Puja in Kolkata.
