Kolkata - Post Report Question and Answers

Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Absolutely not. - Aug 2021

I would. The lack of green space activities for kids the biggest drawback for me. - Dec 2020

In a heartbeat. This may be one of our favorite postings so far. - Sep 2015

Yes. - Dec 2010

Calcutta is a very special place, even if (or because) it's enmeshed in a time warp. - May 2008
