The Bong Connection !!!

Its 3 a.m. & I am not sleepy. So ,why not contribute to Wall-Mag ...

Last saturday I was in Kolkata with Shayon , Karma & two other college friends.
After a longtime I was in City of Joy. Two years back Kolkata was like crowded with college friends - it used to be a real fun time there.
Things have changed completely now & only two or three of them are left there.
Time passes so fast ...

One day I was just sitting & thinking of past ten fun filled years. That feeling gripped me & made me sad. The flashback of old memories is talking upon me. I needed break to get out of this emotional confusion in my mind.
This weekend helped me to refresh .

We five guys met in Kolkata - Four Bengalis & One mathu-bihari . Shayon had in his mind to have pure bengali food for lunch.I think ,probably, he had come all the way from Mumbai just to have Bengali cuisine ... I have lived most of my as a neighbor of Bengal but somehow I didnt get a chance to have that true Bengali food.

Then started the grand lunch ... Fish , fish & fish - it was a totally fishy affair !!! I must admit that the food was heaven ... I have fallen in love with fish ...
For someone who eats fish bengali food is at par with Punjabi chicken ...
Coming back to our lunch - we kept on eating for more than 2.5 hours to get a bill of whopping Rs 16000 & that too without drinks !!!

After having that heavy lunch , we needed a walk .. We went to Princep Ghat .. Next two hours were laughter show ... We recalled the old days & laughed like crazy to the extent that stomach started paining ...
Next we had dinner in the night. It was basically a drinks session.

It was a great weekend spent with old friends & an opportunity to taste the yummy Bengali food .. Here are few snaps @ Princep Ghat ...

Raj,
Thanks for the post and the pictures! It was great to see familiar faces. Hastu is still smiling as always and Captain America (aka Tintin) has put on some weight and is looking well and alive!
I too reminisce about the old days and sometimes that makes me feel down (because those days are gone, so far back) and sometimes they make me laugh (at all the stupid stuff we'd do)!

And I thought that, there would be something more interesting than an FB like conversation happening here ;)

So obviously, that lunch and that dinner was epic. For some weird reason, I am yet to hear the intricate details. :)

There are some things money can't buy

Sakshi said…
Jeez Karma,
I wish Shayon would agree with the whole for everything else there is his card!
But well, I shall try and have the God like cuisine not sure if that is gonna be my heaven or not!
And as far as the train in November is concerned I think the first stop for it is Delhi ;)
