Literary Tour of Kolkata

From the roadside vendors selling second-hand copies of classics to big multilevel stores with well organised collections, Kolkata is a book lover’s dream. What many visitors don’t realise, however, is the city’s rich literary history that runs centuries deep. 

The city has given birth to many well-known authors like Michael Madhusudan Dutt and Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, as well as trailblazers like Rabindranath Tagore, who was the first non-European Nobel Prize laureate. 

As you stop to chat with local vendors about their best-selling copies and visit Tagore’s ancestral home-turned-museum, you’ll come to appreciate the multilayered literary history of Kolkata.
