Setting feet on the streets of the cities in India, one thing bound to make the traveller feeling queer. Signs telling, vendors shouting at the highest pitch - '' Cheap & Best ''. On the streets that goes for everything. Everything you can think of. Groceries, provisions, clothes and even conveyance. In India we need only a little but that little thing must come with a tag of Cheap and the Best. Ambiguous, it may seem for the people around world, where the best possible things come with a steeper price tag. But here comes a wonderland. Just it needs a peek through that little door. And beyond there, lies the promised land of bargain where one has the free license to hanker the shop-keepers and the sellers to give them the best deal out off the lest amount of nickel spent. Not a surprise, people coming India finds loads of thing to buy. Things which are exotic, speaks quality and at the same time are cheap. After all, that's the way things are here about life. Cheap and Best.

Job Charnock and the founding of Calcutta
next Next

'Channuck', as he was called by the people here, is said to have been responsible for the merging of three fishing villages to form Calcutta, a city whose fortunes were linked with those of the British Empire. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica (1911), 'The selection of the future capital of India was entirely due to his stubborn resolution'. An Englishman who remained a devout Christian, Charnock nonetheless learned the local language and lived here much as an Indian. It has been written that he saved a young widow from the doom of sati and married her himself. They had a son and three daughters, one for each of those three villages, perhaps? Revisionists dispute his being the 'founder of Calcutta', but his place in our hearts remains secure.
