I saw this interesting statute on my way in the city of Kolkata.
Just had the time for a quick click as i was passing by in my car. A man with his hands on his chin in a sad thinking pose. Wonder who he is? Is he a Brit from the colonial past or a Bengali from recent past ? Is he a philosopher, a politician??
May be on my next trip I should checkout...
Without reading what is written under the small bust sculpture it's impossible to know, but at a guess I would think that because of it's location, perhaps the man in question had something to do with the community, a philanthropist perhaps!
Thank you for passing by, have a good day.
Good guess..i hope I get my answer on the next visitDelete

Could be roentare...i am curious to know :)Delete
At first glance, I thought it was a statue of Shivaji Ganesan—a look from his early days in cinema.ReplyDelete
I don't know either...ReplyDelete
Interesting, you will have to go back and read the plaque.ReplyDelete
There's a little project for you. Nicely captured though.ReplyDelete
Whoever he is, he has given up.ReplyDelete
