    Description

    Bawdy and brilliant, Kalkatta is a compelling story of outsiders looking in - Mohammed Hanif
    A riveting novel, timely, thought-provoking, insightful - Sharmila Tagore

    Jami is the Gigolo King of Kalkatta. Smuggled into India from Bangladesh and given refuge by his uncle, a leader of the ruling Communist Party, he grows up in Zakaria Street - a Little Baghdad of the old-dreaming of becoming a pukka Kalkatta-wallah. When friendship with a local gang disqualifies him from school, he ends up as assistant to a passport forger, and then a masseur. Soon enough,innocent massage leads to 'plus plus treatments', and Kalkatta opens its doors, drawing Jami into the world of the rich and famous, housewives, tourists and travelling executives, and occasionally to high-paying and dangerous 'parties'.

    The other Kolkata, what Kunal Basu addresses as Kalkatta.

    A complete different rendition of the city Kolkata. This books takes us to the blind alleys of this city that we generally do not visit. This book compels us to give a second thought to the concepts like Refugee and Gigolo. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. N yes this book is worthy enough to be in someone's collection as well. and last but not the list how can I forget the outstanding front cover of this book which is an absolute stunner.
