Kolkata,the city of joy.But for me it’s city of love,city of emotions. People are here very friendly,busy also not busy at all. A city of ancient buildings to modern buildings.
The narrow street of past to modern vast path. And craziness about football. For me it’s a mysterious place. A never ending mystery,that takes you to the unknown. The unknown which is very known. But still a full of strange. A collaboration of different known things makes the city more unknown, more mysterious.
The darkness of the city fills up with all mysterious light at night,marking the modern civilization. In this photo series I want to show the mysterious light and darkness of the street of the city,Kolkata. A dreamy city with full of drama and mystery. Every streets reflects the art,culture and thinking of people of this city. Every narrow streets will take you to the dense of history and when you are digging the history, it will again take you back to the present, the modern life. The city is a mixture of old and young and the streets are perfectly carrying this badge. It is a festival for a stranger to walk through the streets of this city, a joy, a celebration and a mystery, a mystery that will take you to every known symbol but you will lost still, in the dense of love. The love of history. And when you lost yourself between the streets, a known stranger come to you and brings you back to present. A helping hand will always follow you, in your whole journey, through the streets of this city. And the sound of this city makes the city more vintage, more classy and more mysterious. It’s like that the sound is playing a part and fulfilling the drama. A live drama around you and everybody are playing their role perfectly. Even the bad actor is not bad, it is his role, ‘the bad actor’, he has to play the role like that,the bad way. And you are the only spectator, even your own shadow is playing a role in this mysterious drama. A drama of past and present. A mixture of hue and cry and silence, a mixture of shadow and light, proudly announcing their present. People here,they live,they play,they see,they hear,they feel,they help,they struggle,they feed,they wait,they create,and they are happy. At last,a view, that will take you to a bright spiritual world, where you are nothing but a shadow, in front of her, where you give up all your darkness and feel the inner joy.
