Calcutta to Kolkata – A love story
By Special Correspondent
Indiatourism Kolkata, the Eastern Regional Office of the Ministry of Tourism, Govt. of India in association with Foodka, a Youtube Channel, patronised by the famous Mir Afsar Ali, Indrajit Lahiri, and Sunando Banerjee is coming up with “Calcutta to Kolkata-A love story” to celebrate the confluence of the Legacy of Calcutta and Flamboyance of Kolkata.
Kolkata, or shall we call it Calcutta, is a city which is ever-evolving. From the village trios of Sutanuti-Gobindapur-Kolikata, to the modern city that it is today- this city has evolved a lot. Multiple communities have come here, got themselves settled and enriched the local culture. For us, the heritage of the city is not only old buildings, or yellow taxi, or hand-pulled rickshaw only. It’s much beyond that. It’s a co-existence of different communities- it’s being the perfect melting pot of different cultures. And food, being the great leveler that it is, gives a perfect layering to this confluence of culture. Collaboration of Incredible !ndia, the most followed Government of India Brand in the World and Foodka-the YouTube Sensation with close to 3L subscribers conceived the idea of creating stories around two cities- two parallel, yet interconnecting worlds- Calcutta and Kolkata. The vision is to showcase to the world the stories of Kolkata- via the culinary root. To showcase the varied streetfood, as well as premium properties- the heritage Calcutta, as well as the new Kolkata. And Foodka Season 7, with Indiatourism Kolkata, tries to tell the story of two cities- Calcutta to Kolkata which would not only mesmerize the tourists but also the citizens of Kolkata would explore many untold stories and unfold the legacy of this charming city.
