As an ardent Kolkata lover, cruising around the Maidan area in the early morning hours has its own charm. The air here is always brimming with youthful energy. Boisterous sweaty kids kick a football high into the air while morning walkers dig their happy feet into the dewy wet grass. The efforts at fitness find further reward when you walk into one of the waiting food tents and pop a hunk of the crunchy buttered toast straight into your mouth. Dipped in a succulent mutton stew, accompanied with thick long strips of carrot and papaya – divine!!
