Prinsep Ghat:Peace is a place

Was it the Hooghly river singing a lullaby or those boatmen at work , oblivious to the passage of time? Something about that evening was tranquil, dreamy clouds had just passed by and even the Vidyasagar bridge looked slumberous somehow . A soothing song and a few pictures from that quiet evening in Kolkata….

I remember seeing glimpses of this place in a Hindi movie ‘Parineeta’ and the song that has been shot against the backdrop of this ghat is a melodious number that I am sharing .

Have a happy weekend all !
