UK and Bengal

I’ve said this before and gotten flak about being a Bengali anglophile, but I’ll say it again. When I take the train through rural Bengal, I sometimes feel like I’m traveling in the UK. The same lush green, lakes, rolling fields. A few differences in vegetation – banana trees, mango trees, broad banyan trees. But the same lush green.

Some photos to illustrate my point. Here are some photos of Bengal and Kolkata from the plane on a recent flight.


And here’s UK. A little blurry, but this is what I could get from the web.
