Kolkata – a city trying to break out of its past

Kolkata has always been a city with dual identities; a dirty city that isn’t worth visiting, a city trapped in dirt and a bygone era; or a regal city, a shining star that weaves the Indian cultural capital, a City of Joy with the British Raj thread. After two days in the city, my first visit, I am definitely leaning towards the latter definition but only by consciously overlooking the former. It is definitely a city that everyone should visit.
