Hand Shadow Art brilliantly done, in homage to the city of Calcutta.

Hand Shadow Art brilliantly done, in homage to the city of Calcutta. Natives will recognize the iconic Victoria Memorial, Howrah Bridge, boats on the Ganges, the endangered Sundarbans tiger, Nobel laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore, and more.

Citizens of the world on Google+ can appreciate some creative hand art!

  1. Superb Rajini Rao …thanks a lot …smiling

  2. Rajini Rao says:


    Shah Auckburaully and Kershaw Rustomji, I grew up in Calcutta and the images brought back instant memories. I wonder if they have this for other cities as well.


  3. saw this …pretty awesome ..


  4. Rajini Rao I know Calcutta well ….been there and stayed there many times… Dharamtala ….New Market ( cannot forget Nahoum’s) Free School Street ….smiling


  5. Thanks for this Rajini. I have never been to Noth East India, but I will have you know that its high on my list. This is really good. If there is one thing I really need to do before I kick my own bucket, is to get to know my country well ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. Suhail Manzoor North east has some really beautiful places. Assam and Arunachal are really awesome. check out the pics of Assam on this post on my blog http://itsallpartoftheplan.wordpress.com/2011/08/03/who-does-the-ulfa-represent-exactly/

  7. Rajini Rao says:


    You would especially appreciate Calcutta, Suhail Manzoor , I think. Very poetic and deep thinkers (except when rooting for cricket..which was alluded to by the cheers and the guy with the cap, former Captain of the Indian cricket team, Sourav Ganguly).


  8. I know I will love Calcutta Rajini. I always wanted to go and visit there. It was many, many moons ago when I read a biography of Vivekananda which painted an enchanting picture of Calcutta in general and Mother Kali especially and I was smitten. I keep a copy of Geetanjali on my bed table and I often turn to it to nourish my soul. Its only a matter of time before I visit Calcutta and be spell bound ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. Thanks for the tip Sandip Dev. Fate would have it that the further I travel from India, the closer I get to her. I have actually spent more time in India the last few years (mostly because of work) than I ever have in my life. And the funny thing is I have a lot of friends in Assam now. A whole bunch of them (along with the rest of India) seem to really have a good time working and living in Bangalore and I have many standing invitations to visit Assam which I intend to take advantage of one of these days ๐Ÿ™‚


  10. All the best. If you do visit, do so between Nov to Jan

  11. Joan Hogol says:


    Awesome. Simple and beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚


    The power of the imagination can do something nice even nicer ๐Ÿ™‚


  12. LOVE that tiger shadow! Somehow the video reminded me of the Hirshhorn Museum in DC.

  13. Tom Lee says:


    So cool ! and beautiful art. I guess it’d take a lot of practice too.

  14. Rajini Rao says:


    Tom Lee , the best I can do is a flapping bird, lol! ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. Tom Lee says:


    Even flapping birds are hard to make them look so real! ๐Ÿ™‚ nice post as usual. What Classic Rock you’re gonna give it a go next?

  16. Rajini Rao says:


    Tom Lee I’m stuck on Jim Morrison! I need to diversify!

  17. Tom Lee says:


    Rajini Rao looking forward to it. Light my Fire is his best and very popular but has been played so many times.:-)


  18. I showed this one to my daughter last night. She said the same thing as me- that she loved the tiger! ๐Ÿ™‚


  19. Totally amazed ! Fantastic !


  20. Special for anyone who has experienced Cal..thanks Rajini!


  21. That’s great Jim Richardson! which cities are you visiting? India is quiet diverse. When you visit a particular region & say to yourself ‘this is India’, just offbeat into a different direction & India would surprise you:)
