Dalhousie Square, now known as B. B. D. Bagh was what was once the central business district. It was the nerve centre of Job Charnock’s Calcutta.Rudyard Kipling in his “A Tale of Two Cities” writes :“Thus the midday halt of Charnock -- more's the pity! Grew a City.As the fungus sprouts chaotic from its bed, So it spread --Chance-directed, chance-erected, laid and built On the silt --Palace, byre, hovel -- poverty and pride -- Side by side;”This tour – which serves as a wonderful introduction to the city - takes you through the hows and whys of Calcutta helping you retrace the steps that gave birth to this second city of the Empire. Liberal doses of history with lots of photographic opportunities makes this heritage site a must do if you visit Calcutta.

What makes my tour unique is that firstly it's a West Berlin tour. Almost all tours in Berlin are centered around the East city. Tales from West Berlin in the roaring 20's on the other hand is a unique snapshot of a period in time in a hedonistic, liberal city. Religion, sex and creative freedom were tolerated resulting in an intoxicating district centered around Kudamm boulevard. West Berlin was home to a large LGBT community and was a hive of creativity at the turn of the century. My tour centers around the people that lived here in the 1920's including artists, actors and cabaret theater owners. During the tour my guests also get an inside glimpse into the period 1920's home of a former silent screen icon who shone during this period. We also visit a historic train station which is like a 1920's time warp! Finally we stop for a tea or coffee at Cafe 1900 which is a tastefully decorated classic venue.

After serving his Brooklyn district for years, Congressman Sullivan discovers that his once comfortable Irish-American majority has given way to a diverse district of blacks and Hispanics. Challenged by a more liberal opponent, he tries everything possible to maintain his seat only to painfully learn that he and his views are outdated and irrelevant to today's world. But he doesn't bow out of the race gracefully, and the fierce ensuing campaign brings new insights to the meaning of democracy and the terrors of a swiftly changing world. If, as it is said, all politics are local, this compelling story transcends politics and puts a human face on how the American democratic system really operates. Unforgettable characters and a powerful plot offer a remarkable and tense story of how tragic endings affect new beginnings. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Will Tulin.
