Due to becoming allergic to crowd day-by-day, I choose to spend my 2016 puja vacations at my sister’s place at Naihati. It is a suburb in Kolkata outskirts right beside the Ganges. I was no-more-crazy for puja-pandal-hopping and so decided to spend this vacation visiting places at Hooghly, lies just on the opposite side of the river. I sat […]
