The day I took my books to Kumortuli

The day when it was being decided that we (me and few of my college friends) would visit Kolkata's famous Kumortuli, my book blogger's mind clicked and I thought how would I blog about my favourite place in Kolkata. Kumortuli is located in Northern Kolkata and you can see lanes of potter's quarters where artisans make these traditional idols for Bengal's most famous festival Durga Pujo as well as other festivals. So here it goes:

I decided to take a few books that would somehow have some relevance with the place. You know, with Goddess Durga's idol being made there, it just awakens the feminist side of me. So I took Karma's Ukulele by Lekshmi Gopinathan which talks about the journey of a fierce and self sufficient woman.

The second book that I took along with me is The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. I took it along because of the aesthetically beautiful places mentioned in the book.

I found this bright yellow door against an otherwise dull white background. It reminded me of Hassan from The Kite Runner, who brightens up Amir's life as a faithful and loyal friend.

I also found this cute little wooden mail box. Mails and letters always make my day.

This day was an eventful one, a perfect day I spent with my friends in Kumortuli. Here are a few more pictures from Kumortuli, sans my books.

I would like to thank Oindrila, who agreed to click these photographs for my blog. Check out her Instagram page travel0graphy.diaries.

Hope you enjoyed my post! :)
