Photographer's Note

The Old and the New : Inspired by the reviews of my previous shot on the railway station,I am again uploading an I-Phone image.This is a contrasting image of an apparently underprivileged man wearing a traditional lungee dress and riding a ramshackled bicycle in the modern surroundings of New Town,the modern satellite city spreading out in the eastern fringes of Old Calcutta.The New Town is where the Haves of Calcutta are moving to live in modern skyscraper apartments provided with modern amenities like swimming pool,playground,tennis courts etc.It has become the hub for Information technology industry and the real estate sharks.
