Calcutta (now Kolkata) was named the City of Joy after the novel by the French author Dominique Lapierre. The novel was based on this city. The people here love to celebrate every occasion and festival. Kolkata has its own charm which is very different from all other regions. And to me, the very name takes me through the journey of nostalgia. Why not? This is my native land and I spent the most of my lifespan in the city. So today I thought of taking my readers through my native city in my own way.
Welcome to the Isle of Calm as they say in Portuguese – Ilha de Calma. Islands are all about the sun, sea and the sand. Yet Diu has more jewels in its crown – the tales of the bygone era, the Portuguese history, the serenity of the surrounding, beautiful architecture and the idyllic lifestyle.
