    I am afraid this video is a waste of time. It did not highlight the festivities of Kolkata, like Durga puja, Kali and Diwali, Christmas and new year, Luxmi and Saraswati puja. Chinese new year, id, Ramadan. Calcutta is full of festivals, all year round. This video certainly did not capture any of its beauty.

    WestBengal is so much more than Kolkata. Why don’t foreigners visit Darjeeling or Digha. Both the places are quite a thing

    All they want to show about India is POVERTY. The video doesn't showcase places like salt lake, Rajarhat or South kolkata nor it shows monuments like the Marble palace, the writer's building, the Thakurbari, St Paul's , National Library, Star theatre or Indian Museum to name a few (only victoria was shown). So its very clear that they didn't want to show any heritage nor any comparatively modern and cleaner parts of the city. So its poverty and poor India they are focusing on, which they always have been doing.

    I love Kolkata for variety of foods which I have not seen anywhere , food is an art here , many indian cities famous for many foods but they are centred to particular characteristics, while Kolkata is completely different, even Punjabi , Rajasthani, Lucknow Nawabi foods are so nice there, Bengali masala touch is totally fabulous.. 1) variety of sweet some are dry some are moist some are completely juicy 2) so much variety of fish , mutton, chicken itmes smokey, dum, baked, simple bong style , mughlai style, english , European... 3) green vegetables cabbage, , cauliflower, banana flower, Loki , lentiles , Taro root , pumkin ,Arbi leafs means endless , made with shrimp , prawns, fish head , fish curry with brinjal , cauliflower, & potatoes or carrots so much so light & healthy food 4) hundreds pure vegetarian no onion no garlic foods , bhogs ...just impossible to imagine.

    Idk why but most of the westerners who ever came India tried finding slums sooo hard. Yeah you will find few of them even in america uk France Germany tooo. It doesn't mean you will only show slums seeing this people will get more stereotype. I've been to Kolkata thrice it has its mordern side and also the old side just like any other state of India. People are sweet but sadly development has stopped there
