Dhakuria Lake

If you stay at the same place for a long time, you tend to take things for granted. Same has been my attitude towards Kolkata, my city. But, ever since I have been bitten by the shutterbug, I have made an effort to find out places within my city which can take your breath away.

  1. verrrry pretty! interesting that this is “your town”. reminds me somewhat of one of my favorite bloggers — yummygal — who has a descriptive post several times a week exploring her neighborhood … in (drum roll 4 M-fa-siss) New Jersey!

  2. This place is not safe in the evening for couples. Goons n police work together to molest girls and rob boys.. please stay away from this place if you are couple.
