    I have seen with much interest your website “Puronokolkata”. You have done an excellent job – what others may have thought about but somehow could not bring to fruition. I am in particular fascinated by the fine collection of old illustrations on Calcutta on your website and brief but very useful commentary. They do give a vivid depiction of Calcutta as it was then and to my mind worth are more than a thousand words. I wish you greater success.
