Rabindra Sarani, Kolkata, is one of the most famous thoroughfares in the city.
When we talk about the built heritage of Kolkata, the discussion is usually limited to mansions, and sometimes, memorials. Rarely do we talk about roads of Kolkata, which are just as old and form the basic infrastructure of the city. If we talk about the oldest road of Kolkata, it is the well-known Rabindra Sarani, earlier known as Chitpur Road ( its present name has been drawn from the name of its iconic resident, Sri Rabindranath Tagore,) which is believed to be almost 400-years old. On weekdays, the crowd on this stretch makes it very difficult to walk leisurely. However, one can always try a tram ride on this route on a weekday.
The sketch depicts exactly the trees standing non chalantly over shadwoing the bustling streets of Rabindra Sarani.
