Spanning the Bengali Space

Travel Blog   I arrived at Kolkata international airport at 8pm of a rather chilly, December evening. Exhausted, as I collected my luggage and staggered out of the airport gates, my eyes fell on a shiny, yellow Ambassador car. Wow! Ambassador after so many years awakens nostalgia in a really strong manner. The first amazing piece of info I gathered at the first step in this city is that Kolkata proudly continues the tradition of black and yellow Ambassador taxi services to date. This is probably the only place in India where you can relive those old days that had sleepy afternoons in the back seat of a fat ambassador with the soothing music of Kishore Da songs lulling you off. “ I discovered the shy and novice Kolkata that had a branded feel to every thing it possessed ” -Aeshy This Black and Yellow Ambassador TAXI lets you know you reached Kolkata Kolkata air is not spine chilling like Delhi, nor is it lukewarm like the winters in Andhra or Odisha, its pleasurable

Only Tsu can do to Facebook what Facebook did to Orkut

I'm not saying you will start earning in millions in a few days, but at least you will earn for your contents. You won't believe how much content you generate in one single day by just logging into Facebook and posting/liking/sharing either your personal images/videos or simple text messages. Why not earn loyalty for your generated contents. tsu.co  is a social network service launched in July 2013 by Sebastian Sobczak. Facebook sensed the potential of the idea of tsu.co and is going all the way out to get it removed from the minds of its users. First Facebook tried blocking its link shared on Facebook, then even scrapped out it's mentioning on the Facebook platform and then termed the link of tsu.co to be spammed. But due to Facebook user's outrage, Facebook finally had to allow posting the links of Tsu.co on the Facebook platform from December 2015. The social network is getting stronger and firm with each coming day and users are seen migrating towards a socia
