Trip to Flower Garden, Big Bridge, Spooky Cemetery, Museum, Carriage ride!

  • Dec 22, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • The Scoops restaurant

Itinerary

1030 AM – 1130 AM: Visit Mullik Ghat Flower Market, located directly under the Howrah Bridge. The market, which is open all hours of the day, is a lively scene of bright yellow and orange flowers. Vendors and porters continually walk and run up and down the market, auctioning off their stock, it makes a great place to take photos.

1130AM – 1200 PM: After browsing and observing the flower market, we can take a walk across the Howrah Bridge for great views of Kolkata, the Hooghly River, and the constant stream of people crossing the bridge while carrying giant loads.

1200PM – 130PM: Then we can take a public transport/cab to South Park Street Cemetery, quiet and peaceful decaying ancient cemetery, one of the spookiest places in Kolkata which is right off the busy Park street. The cemetery was set up in 1767 and includes around 1,600 tombs. If the weeping trees and the moss covered tombs aren’t already scary enough, the occasional squawk of a crow will make things a little freakier!

200PM – 245PM: We can stop over at any place in Park Street for Lunch

3PM – 530PM: After Lunch, we can go to either Indian Museum or Victoria Memorial Hall, or Both according to what the time permits (to see some fine piece of European and Mughal art).

6PM – 630PM: In the evening, before calling it a day, we can take a fun horse carriage ride from the gate of Victoria Memorial and trot around the large green patch of Maidan.

  • Rohit B.

    hey guys and girls, I was really amped to go but I came on here to inform you that I would have to leave early as I'm participating in the sec 377 protest on Sunday at 3 near New Market... which has 250+ people going to it. Since you guys are still discussing whether this event is a go or not, I'll wait till you do to change my rsvp. But, as of now, don't count me in. Good Luck with the decision.

    is that any fees i have to give?

    December 13, 2013

  • deb

    90 % people do not understand the commitment behind RSVPing....
    I was stranded alone in a meet up organised in September !

    So friends whoever has RSVPed kindly do put a reminder in your mobile and make sure to turn up and lets not deprive the host.

    1 · November 12, 2013

    • Indranil M.

      Yes man, there are some who never show up after RSVP'ing

    Hi,

    By the way .... here is a suggestion, if you allow me please.

    Mullick ghat @ 10:30 AM is not a good choice because unless you visit the place at early morning hours (5 AM to 7 AM) .... you will not see the real mood of the place. I regularly go to the place for photography, and try to reach there by 4:30 AM.

    Thanks

    • deb

      If we take too much on plate for a day , it may not b as tasty as expected.

      Lets split and arrange for another meet for different location s.

      December 3, 2013

    • bagghi

      I think as it is sunday we can make it little early say 8.00am

      December 3, 2013

    Week days are really problem for working people. See if I can manage somehow as I love the itineraries. When is the last date for confirmation? And what is the charge for the same?

    November 26, 2013

    • Indranil M.

      What charge??? There is no charge to meet. That's free. One may need some travel allowance and food expenses. That's about it I guess. I think Rhitu will change the date to the weekend. I'll send her a mail.

      November 28, 2013

    • Ujjayini

      Okay. Sundays are preferred.

      November 29, 2013

    Did we decide to push this back to the 15th?

    1 · November 28, 2013

      Don't know why she set this up at a friday morning.... :P Let's see if she decides to change it.

    Extremely sorry. I cannot attend on 17th. Dec. As a matter of fact, on weekdays, I am not available.

    November 20, 2013

    • Aurindam M.

      Same situation in my case. It would be great if the plan is organized on a weekend, Sunday preferably.

    Hi,

    I am a new joinee here. Thanks to the organizer. Unfortunately I will be out of the city both on 17th Nov and 13th Dec.

    Will catch up meet ups organized some other time.

    Hey guys, I am out of the country and won't be back in time for the event. is there anyone who is going who is willing to coordinate? Indranil? Arnav?

    November 11, 2013

    • Indranil M.

      Half of the people who actually come aren't going to come. I think we better postpone it to a later date. I'm scared the number of people who will actually turn up will be pretty slim.

    Hello to All,
    I want to participate because I was in St, Xaviers Hostel and know Park St. well. We could also visit it. But from 6th to 12 Nov. will be attending my schools 125 centenary celebrations in Mussoori. Can it be postponed for a week if you all don't mind. Hoping to meet soon.
