Vintage Experince of Kolkata tramcar.

Tramcar in Kolkata

If you are visiting Kolkata don’t forget to take heritage ride of Kolkata tramcar.Kolkata is the only city in India where tram transportation is working.Tramcars are traveling on kolkata streets from 1873.It’s feel like a fairytale experience going back in past realizing how was life in old colonial British rule,cause the infrastructure of the tramcar has not changed since then.

jjjjj
It’s unique experience one can have if you really want to feel the essence of kolkata.tram car is the best example of environment friendly transportation but i think in this fast metro life people may not prefer such a slow transportation.
When i asked Harshal that,” i wanna have a ride in tramcar…!! ”so he was like ,”ohh its just a mini train..!! ”i forced him to take a ride in tramcar cause, being in kolkata and not experiencing tram car i think our journey will not complete.so somehow harshal got ready to travel in tramcar just for my wish …and getting in that tram car for that first time i really felt as if i went in years ago era.I think government should take necessary renovation in tram car so that it will enhance the experience of the first time travelers.

As soon as we get in to the Museum the guide gives some instructions such as please do not touch the statue and all,which i think its necessary or else people may exploit  the beauty of statue.First we saw Kapil Dev’s  statue and it was so real we cant express we just kept staring at it.later on we saw Mahatma Gandhi, Dr.Ambedkar,Shivaji Maharaja, Hitler, Saddam  Dr.Thambe, Mohammed Rafi and Prabhu Deva,Angelina Joli ,A.R.Rehman, Mitchel Jackson,Mother Teresa and many more.

We were so eager to took the photographs with each and every statue thinking that,we might never meet the personalities in real so we fulfill our wish by standing besides these statues and capturing our photos with them.I was really surprised by the great artist work by the man behind of this measum,Mr. Sunil Kandalloor.The wax work is amazing and replica of the celebrities.

while going on elephant safari in the park i was quiet surprised that their were villagers houses who stay their inside of the park..!! can you believe it …i mean they don’t have fear about tigers,rhino’s may be they must be used to all these wildlife animals.luckily we spotted rhino it was quiet far so couldn’t get the closer look.
