'[This book] gives the reader a glimpse into the journey of a boy from a small town in Rajasthan to the wider world: a world that has given him the scope to take forward his interest in community and artistic causes' ? JAYA BACHCHAN 'If you want to see Kolkata come alive, all you have to do is dive into this delicious book' ? SEEMA GOSWAMI Calcuttascape grew out of the regular blogs written by Sundeep Bhutoria and his weekly column in the Hindustan Times, Kolkata, titled 'Cityscape'. A peripatetic soul, the writer criss-crosses the world on business and leisure, but his heart resides in his hometown, Kolkata. With characteristic wit and disarming plain-speak, Sundeep writes about a variety of topics ? from travel and food to customer services and lifestyle, from art and heritage to environment and gender equality. A keen eye for detail and with a firm finger on the pulse of a city, this collection of columns is an ode to the cosmopolitanism that sits at the very heart of Kolkata, even as it minces no words to point out some shortcomings, as only a loving resident is allowed to.
