About Vidyasagar Setu:-
Vidyasagar Setu (Bengali: বিদ্যাসাগর সেতু Bidyasagôr Setu), also known as the Second Hooghly Bridge (Bengali: দ্বিতীয় হুগলী সেতু Dbitiyô Hugli Setu), is a toll bridge over the Hooghly River in West Bengal, India, linking the cities of Kolkata (previously known as Calcutta) and Howrah.
With a total length of 823 metres (2,700 ft), Vidyasagar Setu is the longest cable–stayed bridge in India and one of the longest in Asia. It was the second bridge to be built across the Hooghly River; the first, the Howrah Bridge (also known as Rabindra Setu) 3.7 kilometres (2.3 mi) to the north, was completed in 1943. Named after the educationist reformer Pandit Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, it cost Indian Rupees 3.88 billion to build.
Construction began on 3 July 1979, and the bridge was commissioned on 10 October 1992 by the Hooghly River Bridge Commission. The project was a joint effort between the public and private sectors, under the control of the Hooghly River Bridge Commissioners. The bridge is used by around 30,000 vehicles daily, considerably less than the bridge's capacity of 85,000.

What a beautiful bridge, and the color scheme of the purple and orange looks superb. A very nice angle to choose to shoot from too, it makes the length of the bridge very apparent and gives the viewer a great chance to appreciate its epic scale.
Very nicely done, thanks as always for sharing.

Very nice photo specially with half a minute exposure there you got luck that the boatman did not move enough but very sharp photo there indeed.
Composition wise I wonder which is the center of attention, is it the boatman or the tower of suspension bridge in purple light?

what a spectacular night shot!
I like your composition and the way you placed the bridge in the frame.Also the FG with the boat is strong and eye-catching.But the most I like the warm color scheme of the scene and so lovely reflections in the smooth water surface.
Wish You all the best
