Saras Mela 2016-17

Of all things what I enjoy the most about the short-lived winter of Calcutta is the handicraft fairs across the city. Unlike majority of Bengalis my political expertise is really poor and it borders on shameless opportunistic consumerism. So I can't comment on how fast the socioeconomic condition of Bengal is heading south and how detrimental these fairs and festivals are to that. I love them simply because they are shoppers' paradise.
