Would be righteous note ) Yes, just what happened. Kolkata WT page is full of half truth, bogus and lies.
Half truths - Kolkata still under communist control, truth is, there was change of power long way back in 2011! Kolkata taxis hardly run on meter, truth is, they do run on meter after price revisions Lies Sudder St is drug peddler heaven! Is not this a backdoor ad for drug? Truth is, the area is just fine, ok for all.
Bogus stuf A display of non descript dormitory and three star hotels, while there are much much more reasonable and best staying places. Listed was oyorooms,,a dubious service of surplus hotel room booking system, a commercial version of airbnb. Listed, hotel samilton, housez43, hotel roland, seems the actual contributors here, hardly anyone, local or cab river has heard of them. No mention of riverside Floatel, or century old Grand Great Eastern hotel!!
Seems its a place for budget backpackers (hippie?) only! Yes, dorms, drugs, all lead to that suspicio
Travel bogus stuff, No mention of St Paul's Cathedral, Mullickghat flower market, Birla Planetarium, Science City,Holi festival, Park St. Cemetery, WW1 memorial , Bow barracks, Kolkata Eye (very recent though), and Shahid minar !!!!!
Bottom-line is, we are all touts, this or that way!
