Come Durga Puja, this seemingly quaint part of the city bursts with life- brightly lit roads, huge crowds, various pooja pandals and an even bigger number of shops selling delicious food to the hungry hordes that throng the celebration. No wonder it is lovingly referred to as Little Kolkata by the huge Bengali diaspora all over this city.
