Now Kolkatans strictly mean people part of the City Of Joy. While this is a silly statement to make, it is necessary. Reason being that Kolkata is home not just to the Bongs but a diverse number of communities- from the Gujjus to the Punjabis! Even the Anglo Indians and the Parsis. However, people belonging to Kolkata have a distinct vibe irrespective of community, different from what these communities are in their native places.
Sense of warmth– Lodge into the home of any Kolkatan and the hospitality you will find is amazing. The culture of the city is about bering cosmopolitan and sweet. And this stands revealed in their food and guest pampering styles. On any typical Kolkatan’s guest menu, dal makhni finds easy place as does thepla and the Bong fish. Where else would you get such amalgamation of diverse food varieties into one plate?
Kolkata’s Party Scene- Gelling with a Kolkatan has varied advantages. Letting you explore its unique party scene is one such. Park Street is one unique badge of the city that cannot be replicated elsewhere. No matter how swanky Chandigarh is and how posh Noida becomes, the snobbish warmth of being friends with a Kolkatan and getting to party here us awesome!
Old and New– If you are friends with someone from this east Indian city, then you sure will not feel outdated even when dressed in a traditional outfit. While Delhi and Mumbai often create pressure to make outside residents dress according to the city’s up market trends, Kolkata and its inhabitants are laid back. They will accept you even if you are in shorts or all covered up in an anarkali suit.
Hangouts that do not mean a fat bill– Most group hangouts mean fat bills in other metro cities. However, in Kolkata, friends could meet up over a cup of coffee and sit over for ages. There is no pressure to flaunt your wealth. The city offers each one its own pace. The uber active have a place in its galaxy as do the snail paced confused souls looking to understand what track to hop on in life!
Try visit the city and make sure you groove up to your trends from here. Try and see the delights involved and we are sure that you will vouch that Kolkatans are the most amazing individuals to gel with.
