  1. good post. I’m a Bengali and could perfectly connect with it. Though I’ve been to Delhi once, but could not witness the talent of our “dhaki”-s or eat our favourite fish finger and radhaballabi dishes. The writer could fill that void with her well-researched piece and brought that missing essence of “laal-par-shada-saari” and “dhakku-rakurr-rakku-rakurr” right into the heart. Keep it up!
