The Telegraph Bagbazar Festival: 'The Heritage Boat Ride'

Well the natural fisticuffs, the "ticket-centric-paucity" and the transport unavailability couldn't dent into our propensity....we did make it large. The 4-hour long heritage boat ride, as a part of the Telegraph Bagbazar Festival, dazzled us to the core...the experience was fascinating to say the least; and I guess I'm not overstating when I say that our "Mayurpankhi" transcended the natural nefariousness to script a myriad, the "Drifting myriad"...let's take a look at some of the snapshots from the 'excursion'.

The Heritage Boat Ride: That's how it started, my friend...the 'illustrious' ride to savor forever....
The Heritage Boat Ride: That's our 'beloved' Mayurpankhi alright...the carrier, my friend
The Heritage Boat Ride: That's when the rest of Kolkata was sinking into a deep slumber...
The Heritage Boat Ride: The murkiness and the gloom didn't really make an impact.....
The Heritage Boat Ride: That's our glazed deck, on the top floor of the "Mayurpankhi"..
The Heritage Boat Ride: That's when we were passing by the chronicled Dakshineshwar mandir...
The Heritage Boat Ride: Those historic structures looked refreshingly beautiful, baked in the rain...
The Heritage Boat Ride: There was "freshness" in the air, it's a different experience altogether...
The Heritage Boat Ride: And you would always have a "solitary reaper" in her melancholy self...
The Heritage Boat Ride: Padmashree Rita Ganguly mesmerized us with her mellifluous chants..
The Heritage Boat Ride: As I said, the Natural barriers wouldn't hold us back....it just couldn't!
The Heritage Boat Ride: The Mayurpankhi was not merely a carrier, there was an artistic bend...
The Heritage Boat Ride: Yo! Bolly directors you got an idea for your next movie poster ;) 
* Thanks to my blogger friend Shankar Bhattacharya for arranging the event passes and of course, for arriving on time :P
