The Major Arterial road in New Town, Kolkata was my daily route to the office and back home. Then, a broad straight and mostly traffic free road stretched through the vast landscape of green grasslands frequented by large water bodies. The landscape changed in an unimaginable faster pace. More and more multi-storied buildings, commercial spaces and SEZs erupted here, there and everywhere. Within this surrounding, a huge area was the proposed site for the park then. It is now transformed to a beautiful sprawling park called the Eco Park or the Prakriti Tirtha.
