Description of "TUTTI-FRUTTI ON PARK STREET (eBook)"

Kolkata was Calcutta then, and the city was in the throes of much tumult and upheaval.

In an engaging account of life as a child in the early nineteen seventies in Calcutta, Sayantani Jafa offers glimpses of another Calcutta, through snapshots of some of its best known areas – Park Street, New Market and Free School Street.
She recounts ways of life in clubs, celebrating festivals and engaging in leisure while evoking the sights, sounds and places in Calcutta as it used to be.

This account of a Calcutta childhood will entertain readers while offering valuable sociological insights into a city which one can love or hate but never ignore!
