I live in Calcutta, the capital of West Bengal. My house is about 15 km from the centre of the city. It is a very big city situated on the banks of River Hooghly. There are plenty of schools, colleges and universities of all kinds. There are medical colleges too. There are many government-run hospitals as well as private hospitals and nursing homes. Getting treated for any disease is not difficult at all. All kinds of specialist doctors are available at a price. Taxis, buses, cars, auto rickshaws fill the streets. People can travel from one end to the other. Long distance buses, trains and local trains are also available. The railway stations are in Howrah, Sealdah and Calcutta. The city has now turned into a city of Malls. There is the South City Mall, Home Town, Big Bazaars, Spencer, Axis Mall, Multiplexes and many others. The cinema and theatre halls are spread all over the city. There are plenty of banks, post offices, clubs and local markets too. You name it and we have it. Most of the people work in schools, colleges, offices and call centres. There are traders too. Exhibitions, fairs, festivals are a regular feature. There are some problems too like water logging in some areas during the monsoon. The buses are too crowded as the city is over populated. Thousands pass through the city during the day adding to the daily throng. There is a garbage disposal system yet the roads are not always clean. People are to blame for this because they litter the place thoughtlessly. Despite all the small and big problems the city is the heart throb of many. It is a very vibrant metropolis. All types of people live here in harmony. There are a number of parks and gardens too. I love my city..
