Photographer's Note

Night Shop : This is the image of a sweetshop on National Highway 2 near Shaktigarh in Burdwan District of Bengal.There are many such shops in the vicinity which sell the famous "Langcha " sweets round the clock.The Langcha sweets of Shaktigarh are very popular all over Bengal and many people stop there cars on the highway just to taste the flavor of this real treat.While I was passing down the highway in the late hours of the night I happen to stop at one of these sweets shops to taste a big size Langcha,which cost you around 10 rupees per piece.I was not disappointed with the flavor.I took this shot just before starting my car and speeding off towards Calcutta which is around 100 Km from Shaktigarh.One more interesting fact about these shops is that they have their names after langcha only.This particular shop as you can see on the board is called, Langcha Mahal in Bengali or Langcha Palace in English.Similarly, other shops may have names like Langcha Temple or Langhca Mansion,just to attract prospective customers.
