Kolkata is India’s third largest city and main commercial centre of the Eastern region of India. Kolkata is notable for a number of reasons. The city, formerly known as Calcutta, was for a long time the administrative capital on India during the period when the country was a British colony and prior to that as the principal trading post for British companies operating in India. The legacy of British rule is clearly evident in the centre of the city which has a large number of magnificent colonial era buildings which are now major tourist attractions. By way of complete contrast Kolkata is also a city with major slums that is often, and not without reason, characterised as being as place where the population is very poor. Mother Theresa was one of a large number people who have volunteered to come to Kolkata to help its many people in need.
Kolkata’s residents, however, do not for the greater part view their city as a place of poverty. The city is notable for being one of India’s most important cultural centres, with many of India’s most famous writers and artists, such as Rabindranath Tagore, coming from Kolkata. The people of Kolkata have a reputation for being free thinkers and this has manifested itself in what at the time has been viewed as radical political views. Indeed, the British moved the capital from Kolkata to Delhi solely because of the emerging independence movement in Kolkata. Kolkata does have pockets of extreme poverty but the city is a wonderful vibrant place with fantastic food and lots of interesting places to visit.
