Back from a holiday!

Sorry if this blog has seemed dead for the last couple of weeks. I just got back from an awesome holiday in Kolkata, my hometown, where I was enjoying Durga Puja with family and friends.

Kolkata during Durga Puja is the best place to be. The city is colorful, festive and vibrant, and lives up to its tag of the “City of Joy”. I had a whale of a time,

College Square

pandal-hopping (that’s the famed College Square pandal)…

Maddox Square idol

getting Durga Ma’s blessings…

Traditional Bengali meal

hogging Mom’s cooking (khichdi and paanch bhaja- five fries) and…

Bengali sweets- sandesh

gorging on Bengali sweets. In case you were wondering, those are chocolate sandesh on the right. Awesome, na?

But sadly, holidays must end. I’m back in Bangalore, missing home a lot, but ready to try out a whole set of new (to me) restaurants. You in for the ride?
