Keeping the dust and grime off my body, out of my nails, hair and lungs was a daily struggle. Then there was the mosquitoes, which arrived in swarms at sundown and often came bearing malaria.
You arrive with grand plans and soon you are merely surviving. At a time when so many brilliant Indians — and perhaps particularly the hyper-educated Bengalis — are leaving India to find employment abroad, Choudhury, born in Buffalo and brought up in New Jersey, headed in the opposite direction, to the place he thinks of as his real home.
Calcutta felt like a place whose greatest days had passed: With the sahibs gone, our best days were done. But Choudhury finds the city still has ample compensations.
