Kolkata Traveler's Meet

7:46 PM

        Previous two successful traveller's meet: Delhi Travelers Meet & Bangalore Traveler's Meet

According to the recent study by BBC "Bengalis make up at least 60% of India's 400 million-strong domestic tourist traffic".According to IBN Live "Bengalis are the most widely-travelled people in this country and one of the most travel-crazy races in the world in terms of budget tourism, spokesman of the Indian Tourism Fair (ITF) Debashis Chatterjee told PTI" and according to me "For generations and beyond Bengalis have been part of this great travel community who travel with their Kaka kaki chacha chachi friends family and even siblings.Budget travel it seems is there birthright.Born creative and imaginative,they find ways in hardest of situations emerging as a winner in most of the territory unknown.Be it in Sikkim,Kashmir or Kanyakumari you would find an enticing and chatty bong connection."

So much so that a travel blogger "Poonam Parihar" in response to my post on twitter says



Sadly,we do not have many such events in Kolkata.I have lived half my life in this super friendly,chatty,safe and cheap city and even now the phuchka in Kolkata compares to no other.Kolkata is under-rated.If Delhi and Mumbai are the metropolis,Kolkata always escape the eyes of those who compare but honestly I feel Kolkata is a land of creative genius with tremendous potential in every field.A land where every other person is either a painter,or a writer or a singer or a dancer or has been one.One cannot define Kolkata just as a one-stop photographic opportunity during Durga pujo which no doubt lights like a land of glittery holy shimmers but is much much more.Once you live you would know.



So in the name of noble cause of uniting all those who travel to the all others who would love to travel alongwith,here's presenting Kolkata Traveler's Meet on 24th August at the award winning Tea cafe at Sarat Chand Bose.

I have conducted two previous Traveler's meet in Delhi and Bangalore and have made many friends.Some of them are travelling together and some of them are sharing their travel stories simultaneously.Idea is to interact,play games,listen to your travel stories,share some snacks and destination together and get set rolling for the next adventure!You can get in your guitars,tabla or even as petty as your homemade travel scrapbook!We'd love to see...
