Rath Yatra 2012
Today is Rath Yatra. And getting back home would be a problem. But Kolkata Police seem to have gotten better at crowd management. We did not get stuck anywhere ... but that is perhaps because the Raths were going the other way! What with the metro construction on full swing on Diamond Harbour Road, all we could hear was the noise, clang of cymbals ... But just as we were going down Majerhaat Bridge, a smallish rath and procession passed us by. Oddly beautiful in the twilight.
