Pet Market of Galiff Street


  On a Sunday morning ,when half of the city is still dwelling in their fragmentary midnight dreams,the other half of the population can be found amidst the cacophony of the Galiff street's pet market.
 Situated in the Northern part of the city just 5 mins away from the Shyambazar five point crossing, this place bustle with all the energy of all enthusiast who love pets.
This is the oldest pet market of Kolkata.

The alley becomes the pet lover's paradise  where the hobbyists  from almost all corners of Kolkata connect, some to sell and some to buy love... the pets and plants.


This 'Haat' on Sunday is also known as 'Shoker Haat' as this market captivate those who adore nature. For here the hobbyists find huge variety of rare species of dogs, fishes, rabbits . birds , aquatic mammals, plans, flowers and also different abode to keep them safe.

Earlier during the British era this market was set up in the Hatibagan area but as the size of the market grew and people from all the parts of Kolkata and its soundings poured in, there was a need for a bigger place and hence they shifted it to the Galiff Street.  

As I strolled down the market on one Sunday morning ,I captured few moments of this overwhelming joy.
Here are few more glimpses of it:
 



The market starts from 6 A.M every Sunday morning and the sellers stay till 2P.M in the afternoon but for a pleasurable experience it is always good to visit this place in the early morning for it is little less crowded then.

Have you ever been to this pet market?

If you are a pet lover I bet you wont regret visiting this place.

Love,
A.

The Near Far

Around a point fixed Near and Far they move. We measure the distance, Gather all that proves, What is far and how much they have moved. We can see the far but the near stays out of sight. And we never use our senses, We feel close to sun's beaming light. Forgetting that its unreachable.
But the one which we cannot see One that we cannot perceive. Are not very far  Even though it seems.

I must be gone....

There I saw you standing, At the corner of the Drowning street... The distance was huge between us Coldness all over our face. The greys in your hair told me.. Its been a long time now!
I saw you today. Our eyes met for a while. And then the fog grew dense  You strayed elsewhere...
The unspoken was heard in the bristling wind.... Echoes of the distant time came back..
The coldness grew dense and  I walked away. Traveled the unmeasured distance.
love, A
