The Heritage & The Contemporary

Kolkata - a City known for its literary and artistic contributions to the Indian History - In the modern India, Kolkata finds itself struggling for Survival. A city which has been known for its intellectual inclinations, is finding it difficult to let go off the past beliefs and accept the fast changing present.
In this context I was very excited to see this composition, where the Heritage of the Past - The Princep Ghat, contrasts to the more contemporary Architectural Marvel India's largest cable-stayed Bridge - The Vidyasagar Setu.

Something the city and its people can learn from! Keep the past as a guiding light and adapt to be successful in the future.
