    All my appreciation for such wonderful depiction of my country including my city, Kolkata. May i add that apart from the architecture and the banyon tree at the botanics and the many other colonial buildings, Kolkata has the best night life too. We have wonderful clubs and restaurants .. The best discotheque in the country is "Tantra" in our very own Park Hotel!!

    This is also the cultural capital of the country having been home to the Nobel winning poet, Rabindranath Tagore!!

    New Delhi is though my favourite city in the list, inspite of whatever I may have written here about Kolkata!!

    Kudos for the wonderful hub!!

    Interesting article! I've never been to India before. Actually, I haven't been out of the U.S. except for Canada and Mexico. You're lucky you're so well-traveled.
