Comments23/03/2017 #18 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe amusing thing here for me is that I heard that song a few years under 50 years ago and I only get to find out about Marrakesh in this buzz !
For me music is milestones more than beats - for this is where it captures our individuality and so what we happen to like is different to what it happens to mean. A great example is the song that stamped my psyche after 9/11 - which was Gary Jules https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4
When Pink Floyd sang Another Brick in the Wall that is a memory ticker that coincides with Alice Cooper "Schools Out Forever" - you can guess I was at a school which all of us did not want to be at. I can enjoy masses amount of commercial pap because I keep liking separate from meaning. For sure when we talk about song composition and beat this fits in the middle space between like and meaning - but music for me is what flows through my imagination, so much so it is individuality and music becomes DNA.
Perhaps the song I don't like to hear but which carries the most haunting meaning for me is Terry Jacks "Seasons in the Sun"

#14 CSNY's most poignant track was Four Dead in Ohio , an anthem to the Kent State shootings when the Ohio National Guard killed four students protesting the Vietnam War and the incursion into Cambodia
Four Dead in Ohio - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
These shootings led to mass Student strikes, and it was H.R. Haldeman, Nixon's Chief of Staff involved in Watergate who marked the Kent State shootings as the moment that created the deep scrutiny on Nixon's administration, that eventually uncovered Watergate and led to the impeachment of President Richard Nixon.
The Marrekech Express is Crosby, Still, Nash's most joyful song, Four Dead in Ohio their most significant.

Close23/03/2017 #11 CityVP 🐝 ManjitHaving been nearly 50 years since Crosby Stills and Nash recorded the song "Marakech Express" it is about time I actually saw something of the real Marrakech and now I have, it was a great way to catch a glimpse of it in this sublime buzz. I don't remember a buzz of yours before which broke into a novelist dialogue but the effect of the 2nd section added some personal "being there" and it worked.

Comments23/03/2017 #21 Paul Walters#20 @Asesh Datta Thanks for your feedback. The article was for a magazine and they only gave me 1200 words so hard to cover everything . You are right there are so many things that I didn't cover ...the bookseller street and the famous tea houses along it for one. I shall return there is no doubt. Once again, thanks for stopping by !23/03/2017 #20 Asesh Datta@Paul Walters It is always nice to read about our own city from a traveller and, that too, from another country. Like political capital, commercial capital, Kolkata is being labelled as cultural capital of India. Apart from historical significance and imperial construction, there are other facets which British have left as legacy. Some of them you may list in your next trip are Fort William, Eden Garden, Belur Math, Botanical Garden, Gun and Shell Factory (even before British Period), Clive House and New Town. Then the attraction of food, art and culture apart from language (Bengali). Thanks and regards.22/03/2017 #18 Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand AmbassadorThe British left India in 1947, but they left behind quite a bit of baggage — starchy clubs with antiquated jacket-and-tie dress codes completely unsuitable for Indian weather, a passion for cricket and English and Anglicized names.
Every city had streets and squares named after English viceroys and governor-generals: Clive, Hastings, Dalhousie. Soon the new government was busy renaming those roads and landmarks after Indian freedom fighters. Lala Lajpat Rai. Tilak, Gandhi. Nehru. A lot of Gandhis and Nehrus.22/03/2017 #17 🐝 Fatima WilliamsI love the way you describe calcutta or kolkata as it's called now. I had visited calcutta in 2009 and also instantly fell in love with the city. You have almost everything there. I didn't visit alot of places as it was just a stop over for the evening but I loved the Hoowrah bridge a true master piece and the trip to the Ganges was spectacular during the sunset. @Paul Walters Enjoyed the revisit through your buzz 🤗🤗🤗🤗 And Oh the cycle rickshaws are a must try there. Pretty amazing 🤗22/03/2017 #8 Randy KehoI, too, admire mature architecture. But, how can Kolkata be the most vibrant city if there's no mention of the nightlife? Surely, you must of mistakenly stumbled upon a pub from days gone by somewhere along the line.
By the way, I've traded the tall blonde for two shorter versions. May the best one win. The decision may be made final Saturday night -- if they don't find out about one another beforehand. They're old friends.
You don't have to ride in a blind taxi in India to live dangerously.

Calcutta has so much to offer, it is amazing. Hopefully next time you get your luggage on arrival. =)22/03/2017 #3 Lisa 🐝 GallagherA busy City indeed @Paul Walters! Kolkata is full of history. I enjoyed reading about this city. Your jaunt in the Taxi.......... OMG LOL! I would have been crapping myself (excuse me for saying that) LOL. I love train stations, tracks and trains too. That was a really cool station and busy as heck by the appearance of all the taxi's there?!! You did get your belongings, right? My husband flew to the Canary Islands out of Scotland about 10 years ago and on his way back 2 of his bags went missing. They said they would have the bags at Heathrow by the time he left to go back to the States, that never happened. After many calls when he returned, I finally got a hold of a man at the airport in Scotland and I could barely understand him (his brogue), you'd think I would have been able to since my grandparents had a very strong brogue. Anyhow, he said let me check, came back all excited saying he found my husband's stuff and gave me a telephone number with email address so we could get his stuff sent here. Uh, somehow it was never to be found again. He even told me what was in the bags. Sorry to remiss about that incident but your story made me think of it. Ok, enough about that, you are a wanderlust and I love it!
