Extraordinary Calcutta


A recent debate between Amit Chaudhuri and Manas Rayi2 on the need of rehabilitating the old colonial buildings of Calcutta, summarizes the thorny issues of a wider debate about cities, identities and urban policies, which is largely similar in most cities of the world. Contrariwise to most of the current policies, decent and beautiful cities accommodate both the privileged and the poor. I suggest that the built environment is a part of the cultural heritage of a city, as much as of the living arrangements of people.
