Photographer's Note

Morning at Telinipara ghaat. I came here exactly 42 years ago while on a picnic, on 26th December. At that time we were on a boat going south from Chandannagar. At this point we waited for my mother, who had had a board meeting of her school. We played cricket on the uneven ground by the ghaat. Today I rode a motorbike to this place, through dingy lanes lined with jute mills, waste dumps and slums. A very different place from what I remember from 42 years ago. I had not had the occasion to visit this place until now. I could have come here once before if I were present at my father's cremation, which took place near here, but at that precise moment I was on a flight over the Pacific.

The boat is waiting for us.
