Welcome to the City of Joy

Kolkata, formerly known as Calcutta, is the capital of West Bengal state of India. The city is regarded as the cultural capital of the country. It is at the same time the financial capital of eastern India, a gateway to the far-flung areas of the region. The city, located on the east side of the river Hooghly, has a glorious past and an ever-blooming present. The metropolitan city of Kolkata is not just well-known for its roshogollas, mishit dohi, trams, Howrah Bridge and Victoria memorial, but also for its inexpensive nature. When compared to the other metro cities, Kolkata is said to be the most economical city. Maybe this is the reason it is called as the city of joy.

More details of the Symposium program will be coming soon….
