A post monsoon downpour takes Kolkata by Surprise – 3rd November 2016

This is the excerpt for your very first post.


dscf6179A bright sunny November day suddenly grew overcast and a violent thunderstorm caught Kolkata¬†and its citizens by surprise. An intense and violent deluge inundated Kolkata’s streets and sent its transport system into disarray. Making my way back to Rawdon Street from Jodhpur Park just as the deluge broke I was able to capture a few glimpses of the impact of this brief but violent storm on Kolkata’s residents.

Bikers and pedestrians take refuge at a bus stop at Gol Park.
The android rules supreme.
A quick deluge only serves to heighten the romance.
Newly renovated bus stops reestablished their utility despite struggling to face the entire brunt of the storm.
Waterlogged main roads brought back memories of Kolkata’s bitter sweet¬†relationship with the monsoons.
A plastic bag offers scanty protection against the downpour.
