Calcutta

Call @ The Zoological Garden

Ever since birth, we have been a repeated winter visitor at the much known Calcutta Zoological Garden, also known as the Alipur Zoo. My Father has been an exceptionally well story teller. I could remember Sunday afternoons of our childhood, when He used to narrate us stories one after the other to make us sleep under an affectionate pair of arms.Animals and fictions, yet emotional contents were major parts of the story told by him. Till the boundary of the primary school , he didn’t leave a single winter weekend to make ourselves eye every elements of our much loved City of joy. November Second, 2016 had given another day to explore the newly renewed zoo.

The Alligators

The afternoon Sun was so amazingly well lightened, that made the resting alligator looked like one of the sly creature kept at the garden. The contrast made by the green back waters made every witnesses stand there for more than a while. It was a perfect photographer’s land.

The Curious Childhood

Animal’s little planet made the little child curiously attached with the four hours trip. He had been asking for “Sher Khan dekhna hain abhi, uske baad Elephant, phir Lion too”. Hearing those innocent yet warm words, I eyed towards my Father and reminded of those beautiful days, when he used to take my hands to the same place more than a decade ago. My eyes were wept by tears rolling down, which I had to hide from the crowd.

The Alligators

Carrying the dearest pair of eyes, the Deer caught my shutter’s two captures. They were joy to watch above the green pads.

Afternoon Rest

The tale of the Tortoise and the Rabbit, the cunning reminder of the childhood fantasies. How many times we have been narrated this story , none of us could even remember the endless summers and winters.

The Guardian Guide

This is the best snap I had taken that day. These pair of hands once guided me through this same pavement of pebbles. My Father, My Proud Father guided his grandson carrying the same enthusiasm. I wish someone would have been there at my time to take a picture of him holding my little hands then….

The Chimpanzee

With a great history of evolution the Chimpanzee had taken an immensely pivotal role as the center of the attraction at the Alipur Zoo.

The Bear

The second most scary animal in the wild, the sloth Bear here seemed to be very adoring and lovely.
