Calcutta, the Star of the East, is a great city, a City of Palaces, of people and of 'Joy'. Calcutta's buildings are entertaining in a compelling sense, akin to a great epic drama, and so they are, in a serious pictorial sense as well - a grand display gallery. Because of its political and economic history, the city and its background have been lavishly documented. As a matter of record it has sufficient awareness of its own architectural heritage. Calcutta's Edifice allows these buildings to 'speak for themselves'. Illustrated by the author, this book strives to achieve a point of view not of a foreigner but of an appreciator. With notes of the past and seductive speculations of the future, it examines the architectural and associated apparatuses of Calcutta as it is.
