Kalkatta, A Book on Life of Gigolo by Kunal Basu Launched
Kunal Basu’s book “Kalkatta” which is based on the life of a Gigolo has been creating much uproar amongst the book lovers. A reading session on the book and a bilingual adda session was also organized on the theme Dear Kolkata at the South City outlet of Star Mark.
Apart from the writer eminent personalities like Anindyo Chatterjee, Srijato, Chandril Bhattacharya, Aniruddha Roy Choudhury were also present at the occasion.
Speaking about the book, the author said “Walking is the best way to explore the city. During my walking expeditions to various parts of the city, I have come across interesting people. It is in this way that I have researched and found out details about Gigolos and their lives. It was a taxing endeavor for sure. They are just like any normal man. Spotting them in broad daylight is a challenge. Hence I had to frequently go during the night time to actually know about them and their lives”.
Chandril Bhattacharya while speaking about the city of Kolkata during the adda session said “I cannot go beyond my comfort level. Hence I will not prefer to go to unexplored places in the city and know about them unlike Mr. Basu. However I believe that in a city, there are many cities hidden within it”.
The animated discussion kept the listeners engrossed at the session for sure!!
