Kolkata Street Corner - Bagbazar Street and Brindaban Pal Lane
Baghbazar has been, along with neighbouring Shyambazar, the citadel of the Bengali aristocracy. Bagbazar has played an active role in growth and development of Kolkata. Quiet and clean it is the home of the more wealthy part of the population. Nobody will leave the corner shop without a chat and exchange of the latest news. A refreshing drink of fresh coconut milk makes many people stop here. Very skilled with a large blade the vendor holds the coconut in his palm and fearlessly hacks away with a large blade until the juice can be drunk. He even cuts out a little spoon for scraping out the meat.
