When the AF - FAIR was not only with Books

The 38th International Kolkata Book Fair is on now at Kolkata and like the fair, the charm is still being carried in the same way it always gets carried up over the past years. As the name suggests this fair is not only about the books, it means a lot to Bengali's heart. My post is lame for all Bengalis to read as they know what it is and how it is. Today was Vasant Panchami and got a bit time to move my legs to juggle around Asia's largest book fair and as usual it was healing to roam around and buy books. Though I am not a bookworm but like to read books, and bought few. Ate lot and captured few and every time I felt grateful to be born in Kolkata, the cultural capital of India, the heritage of JOY when was gazing upon the crazy Bengali book, art lovers Bengali crowd.

Today was a little bit special as it was Bengali's Valentines Day i.e. Saraswati Puja. The fair was filled with 'Saree'd young lasses and 'panjabi'd young lads. It was colorful and too cute to see.

Here I am posting the pictures
