Ich bin ein Kolkatan

"Whether you are a second generation Non-Resident Bengali like Jhumpa Lahiri, or brought up in Mumbai like Amit Chaudhuri, if you are a creative artist who is concerned about roots and identity, it is impossible that you will be able to escape the frame of reference that Calcutta continues to provide to all those who are historically linked to it."

Thus writes Renu Roy in her piece on novelists from and inspired by Kolkata. Which is all very well, but what one really wants to know is: is Nizam's still functioning and are the rolls as good?


  • Nope, Nizam's closed for good last year. Its one and only Delhi branch at Lajpat Nagar is still functioning, but is not as good.
