Every metropolis extends in more than one direction, but in the curious case of Kolkata, there is a definite north-south divide that has widespread socio-economic implications. From socializing to sweets, from shopping to culchaaar (that’s ‘culture’ for the uninitiated) from Mohun Bagan to East Bengal (football clubs), Kolkata is a city that is as divided as it is united. So here are seven unbeatable reasons to live in South Kolkata!
1. FOR MAACH, MISHTI & MORE
If you are a Calcuttan (or close to one) then food is something that is studied, discussed, debated, dissected and of course, eaten. South Kolkata has some of the best restaurants in the city, with new joints popping up like mushrooms (how yummy are those?) all over the place.
2. FOR YOUR SOCIAL NETWORK
No true Calcuttan feels complete (or allows food to be digested) without some adda. South Kolkata has some truly great places for conversations. From innovatively themed cafes to European-style confectionaries to funky shisha places, your friends will never say no to a meet-up here!
3. FOR THE SHOPAHOLICS
Even loyalist North Kolkata residents cannot deny the many shopping pleasures that abound in south Kolkata. With a plethora of glitzy malls housing the best brands from around the world, this is where Kolkata’s shopaholics flock to.
4. BECAUSE EDUCATION IS THE KEY
South Kolkata is also an educational hub with iconic schools, colleges and a university. From famous centuries-old missionary schools like La Martiniere to privately run institutions like South Point and DPS, South Kolkata is where many Calcuttans have spent their school and college days.
5. BECAUSE OF NATURAL BEAUTY
The scenic beauty of the Ravindra Sarovar lakes have been immortalized in many a film (the Amitabh Bacchan-starrer Te3n being the latest) and it is the place for a relaxing morning walk or an evening stroll with friends. The bypass end of South Kolkata is also a welcome break from built-up urbanity with farmlands and wetlands that play host to migratory birds in winter.
6. TO FEEL GOOD, INSIDE AND OUT!
With a number of modern healthcare and beauty options, south Kolkata is where health meets wellness. From world-class hospitals to diagnostic centres, from luxurious spas to funky salons, the south has it all. This part of the city also has great facilities for pets!
7. FOR THE PEOPLE
Who doesn’t like sharing space with cosmopolitan and open-minded people? South Kolkata is known for its on-trend residents who are quick to embrace the positives of globalization.
