Photographer's Note

SCANNED SLIDE
Calcutta (Kolkata), the city I miss most , no matter where in this world I am.
The city I know is rich with culture, vibrant with life. But like most big cities it has it's share of moments of grief and broken dreams too.
These are some roadside shacks put up by the people who came to the city in search of jobs or a dream of making it big but never could make it. sometime their dream homes get removed to make the city beautiful for the visiting political big wigs or just to make the city look beautiful without its soul.
This photo is very personal to me because I've met lot of good souls who live in these conditions and they still dream.
Sorry about the quality, I have taken this picture in 1993.
