Christmas Of Kolkata Always Becomes Memorable For Everyone
Do you leave the city for Durga Puja and stay for Christmas? I am guilty Macaleputras like us complain that Durga Puja feels suffocating. Those milling mobs, blazing loudspeakers, traffic jams, and stale oil cans that have been used for cooking a thousand biryani hanging like the smoke of indigestion, all of which is too much for our convent-educated sensibilities. We run towards the beach and hills and fields, which leaves Kolkata's blood, toilets, tears, and sweat. Christmas always seems so gentle. It's about a plum cake from a Jewish bakery, a sucker piggy on the green lawn of one of the city's starchy clubs, a midnight mass in St. Paul's Cathedral, and Bow Barrack, something dear to the Anglo-Indian Quarter Of liquor city beaten by a small woman. Christmas is when our NRI cousins return to town, the uncle sleeveless sweater vest is woven by their wives, and the aunts argue which club had the best buffet at Christmas lunch. Kolkata always been identified with Durga Puja. This is the festival that has all its hysterical craze at the climax of films like Kahani. Perhaps it was its anglophilia, which was home to the city's original friendly booters and mukarajis, where its clubs insisted on jackets in the dining room at the stroke of 15 November. Perhaps it was just a strange indifference to a humble Kolkata for its more cosmopolitan Calcutta day. Or it was about making the most of a brief winter of the material before the summer hit vigorously - these few weeks, we all had to indulge in quilts, nude gurus, and sweaters. Whatever it was, Kolkata Christmas became a symbol of a secular holiday, not celebrated outside religious compulsion, but simply because it made one feel good.
