The Nawab, the traitor and small town India

so i boarded the train..with a general class ticket for kolkata....and instead got off at khagraghat....
then i took a rickshaw to bohorompur...a quick breakfast at a hotel....and then i booked a auto rickshaw.....and we were in Lal Bagh.....it mostly contains the buildings from Mir Jafars time...those built by Siraj ud doula no longer exist....

Anyway the weather was fine..the roads are clean and new.....and it was not much crowdy...
and the fish i had at the hotel was very good.......


i really like small towns....the book shops without "penguins and random houses.." the bus stops smelling of nearby "fruit stalls and pan corners".....

and oh yeah amir khan kept saying"kabhi kisi anjan station ka ticket katao"...it was funny though.....just cant avoid the stereotype .....can U?
