Yes,so much happenned in this period from August. 11th.to 3rd.September,going to India,was only one activity.All went well,during our travel.With half a dozen RT-PCR tests,all along the way,chances of going wrong was remote.Our team at Kolkata,did a fantastic job,to minimise our frustrations at the Airport,though we knew it was a necessary evil.
Kolkata was the same. Covid or no Covid. Amphan or no Amphan. It was all very familiar.The crowd at Oberois were very different.So,as someone put it very interestingly,the Pataya holiday trip guys,were now in Oberoi Kolkata,on perhaps similar package.That did viciate the environment,but we couldnt do much.Park Street was clumsy,so was other streets,and we did not find anything interesting moving around.From my point of view,I was searching,if I could find something to say,”yeah,this is it”,but alas!! that was not to be.So, the discussions of when to go back to Dubai,did not find much traction.
We did complete our routine visits in GBS Campus,Raichak,Dadamoni’s house,Amtala Land,Get togethers with Family and Friends,Looking at best possible buying options of real estates in kolkata,etc. and then boarded the flight back to Dubai.
The net net statement was “Kolkata aachhe,kolkata tei”
