On 16 October 2014, I came to Kolkata with my parents for my mom’s health check up at Quadra Medical Services, Hazra Road. My dad booked at Great Eastern Hotel in Dalhousie for our stay tonight. It’s the oldest five-star hotels in all over Asia and its establishment dates back to 1840s during the East […]

An afternoon in Mansour Mall

It’s been long time that we went out in Baghdad. So, we decided today to go to Mansour Mall. It’s the social pearl of Baghdad. We arranged for our visit and went there at around 5:30 p.m. The mall generally remains busy, but today it was empty due to Ramadan. We walked inside the mall […]

Nalen gurer ice cream

Well, I find it quite justified to dedicate this post on an innovative delicacy – ‘Nalen gurer ice cream’, which we enjoyed today at Oh! Calcutta, Silver Arcade, EM Bypass, Kolkata – a Bengali cuisine restaurant. We went to this restaurant for Bengali cuisine. We started with ‘Aam-pora sharbat’ followed by ‘Mochar Chop’, and ‘Bhaape Ilish’ etc. […]

I was sipping my second round of Black Label scotch double on the rocks accompanied with some pistachio nuts and potato wafers. Then I received a call from my colleague Ouss asking […]

Rain Holiday in Baghdad

For the last few days, we were having some rains in Baghdad. The city witnessed torrential rains yesterday. Torrential rains are quite uncommon in Baghdad. There were a few such occasions last year too. The city is not equipped to handle torrential rains and there were water-logging in many areas. The water on the roads […]

Taaza Ganne ka Ras

Babai and I went to bakery & confectionery shop near to the hospital for some sandwiches and patties for us and Jaya, Guttu and boudi. While on our return, we saw a fresh sugarcane juice vendor. In hot summer afternoon, a glass of fresh sugarcane juice is a cool refresher. So, we went for the […]

So near to home, yet so far!

I am coming to home in Ranchi on holidays from Baghdad. It was just like any other previous journey up to Delhi. I avoid reaching Delhi from 15 December to 15 January, as Delhi remains under thick fog blankets, during this time. But such thick fogs are very rare during this time. As we were […]
