Putiram is one of the best culinary heritages at College Street, Kolkata. A sweetmeat/confection shop or plain ‘mishtir dokan’ in Bengali- Putiram is standing tall and proud for decades, in the face of rigid competition from modern fast food/ cake-pastry shops. This 160-year-old sweet shop has remained preferred of people across generations at College Street.

The magic of this place is that they maintained their quality and tastes all the way. There is almost none who have walked through College Street and not sat down here for simple kachuri and cholaar daal and some sweets. The place serves a wide spread of sweets which are really delicious and till date is being sold at an unbelievable rational price.

I am Ayon Talukdar, a person who’s approximately part of every element of existence. There are numerous matters I like to do, to look, and to revel in. Initially, I love to journey. Then I like to examine, I love to write down; I really like to suppose, I really like to dream; I really like to speak, I like to concentrate. I love to see the dawn within the morning, I love to peer the moonlight at night time; I really like to experience the gentle breeze flowing on my face, I really like to odor of the wind coming from the sea. I love to study the clouds in the sky with a clean thought, I try to generate an idea when I can not sleep in the nighttime. I really like vegetation in spring, rain in the summertime, leaves in autumn, and snow in wintry weather. I like to sleep early, I love to arise past due; I love to be on my own, I like to be surrounded by like-minded people. I like the world’s peace, I really like the city’ noise; I really like delicious food and cozy shoes. I like the land and nature, I really like humans. And, I love to chuckle. Travel is one of the maximum generally listed hobbies of human beings. A few humans travel most effective once they want to go to family or buddies, others tour on business, and some tour as a sort of spiritual area, to discover new things about the arena and its cultures and to learn extra. Yet for a few, none of these items is that critical: to those human beings, the journey is ready a laugh and excitement, approximately learning and develops, approximately rest and rest, and about anything they want it to be approximately.
