What you'll do

This tour is about tracing Kolkata's localization in the form of a real time movie. In the sense that this tour is designed exactly how a movie is made. It is based out of a script which is a monologue about the city. In other words Kolkata narrating her own story as an individual. Begin your journey with the script reading session, where you hear about her journey from past to present. After which we head out for the field trip. The areas that we cover in the field trip have been selected as sets of this movie to enact the script storyboard. The people present in all these areas becomes the cast and the guide functions as the director of this real time movie. This journey is about understanding Kolkata's story in the following ways : 1)History: Transformation from past to present. 2)Geography: Framework in terms of infrastructure and connectivity 3)Economy: Market frameworks and standard of living of different sections of people. 4)Culture: Showcasing various cultural patterns. 5)Food: Tasting the flavours that have emerged out of cultural patterns. It's a 7 hour experience in which we cover a distance of 80 km using various modes of transportation.

Shrijit

I'm a budding social entrepreneur, partially raised in Kolkata. I believe that a place is more than a mere geographical entity, it is a living existence. I started this experience from Mumbai where I initially went as a student. After exploring the city for 4 years I started to understand the morphology of the city and realize the importance of travelling as a direct form of education which is to look at a place not from one's own perspective but through that of the place itself. My aim is to create awareness about every place by showcasing its life which is a coexistence of us and everything else that we see, 'The Theory of Everything'. Every place has its own story. After conducting a successful pilot in Mumbai with over 2000 participants in 8 months I am back in my hometown to bring out her life story. New to Air Bnb so hit me up!!
