Welcome to Kingdom of Heaven – Paikpara

Annada Munshi
Daddy – Annada Munshi – with one of his students, to the left, and Bhai and Madhubani. Old days.

Jayathi with children

Mother Jayathi with Buku, Bubu (with violin), Tutu and Manto.

This is how I will always remember the warmth and atmosphere of Sri Annada Munshi´s home at Tala Park in north Kolkata, full of art and music – where I set foot first time in May, 1982, and where I met the one who would become my beloved wife, Bubu.

Now the scene has changed. Annada Munshi, ”Daddy”, passed away in 1984, and his wife Jayathi in 1997. And regretfully, also Kumkum passed away on 27 August, 2001. Please go to his memorial page.
In 2010, on 2 March, also Manto passed away. Remember him!

Vi har i alla fall vårt andra hem i Bubus födelsestad Kolkata – mestadels i stadsdelen Paikpara men också Lake Market (Sardar Sankar Rd 23 A) där vi har en våning sedan 2011, så vad passar väl inte bättre här än en kärleksfull presentation av denna härliga kulturstad i Indien.

KOLKATAS SJÄL, där du också finner länkar vidare till tidskriften SYDASIEN, liksom information om Durga Puja – som vi för övrigt också firat i Lund i tio år!

På Tala Park Avenue har vi vårt ursprungliga hem i Kolkata. Där har familjen Munshi bott i 70 år, och där firade vi vårt bröllop 1982. Möt vår familj på Tala Park .
