Yesterday, we put up a "Visit Again" sign on this blank signboard gantry. It has a folk art theme and reminds the departing tourist of images of Bengal. It was designed by Hidco's creative agency Crayons. A snap taken yesterday morning:

The Kite festival was held in Eco Park yesterday. This was organised by the District Magistrate North 24-Paraganas Sanjay Bansal who'd invited me to attend. In spite of the rains, the large kites, Chandrabindu's songs, presence of stars like Locket Chatterjee, Rachana Banerjee , WasimKapoor, Kanchan Mullick etc drew a great deal of applause. Visitors of the Eco Park who were regular tourists started dancing to the tune of Chandrabindu and requested for weekly performances at Eco Park.
