  1. beautiful amiga! i’m so glad that i saw this, as i’m traveling today and will be home tonight. i’ll be home, but the connection will be so slow that it probably would not let me see the images or comment!

    i’ve missed seeing your lovely posts! in a few weeks i hope to have a better internet connection!


  2. Good photographs of kolkata. The one with the canopy of lights is similar to the canopy in Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow.

    My neighbours, the Basu’s, moved back to Kolkata from Scotland.

    At this time of the year, I hope that there is peace in the world.

  3. such harmonious colours, wonderful lights … wishing you joy too Madhu, and long may your travels be safe and inspirational!

  4. The sparkle of the lights in the photo is magical.
    I hope your holiday season if filled with all of the magical sparkle of those lights.
    Joy, peace and love to you in 2014.
    Blessings and Heartfelt blog Friendship !!!

  5. Looks like the City of Joy has become the City of Lights. Love the header. Best wishes to you and family for a healthy, prosperous , and happy new year.

  6. Ah, but Diwali would out class that presentation in Calcutta. lol. I notice you still favour the old name of the city I was familiar with before they changed the name. Wishing you a Happy New Year 2014

  7. So very happy to be one of your readers Madhu! Happy New Year !
