Milestone Place

Kolkata, India
                    There is a place called Kolkata in the country of India. It is found on most maps and many globes on the northeast part of India. Kolkata is my hometown, but I have lived in Edison, New Jersey for about ten years. Until last summer, when I flew there on a never ending plane ride for vacation.
                     I lived on Park Street in a regular apartment with my grandparents. I still remember on the top of my head the day I went back. It was July 5, 2010, another summer day, but not to me. Most of you would have to drive for a few minutes to see your relatives, I had to fly. Finally, I was waiting for this moment for many years. The day finally came for our family to be reunited.
                     Waiting at the airport my brother and I look for any stopping cars. Thirty minutes later, two, smooth, sleek, shiny cars came to a halt. We rushed outside and couldn't wait for the warm welcome we were about get. Feeling the blacktop underneath my sandals I ran as fast as I could. We couldn't believe our eyes. Our family crystal clear right in front of us.
                      First came my aunt, she took my brother and I and carried us both. Then my grandparents who did the same. Next came two average kids who I call, my cousins. Both of them who don't look like they did in the pictures we saw. First my older cousin Devesh who I just said a simple "hello" to with a gigantic smile. My cousin, Ria gave my a card with a drawing you wouldn't think a five year old could do. Last came my uncle who gave me a tight hug. This was it! The moment of my life I desired for. It was finally here. Possibly the happiest moment of my life. I couldn't have asked for anything more.


  1. This was a great post Sim. You used many good verbs. Keep up the good work.

  2. Simran your Blog Post on Kolkata was very descriptive. You really did do a good job. In the begining you really compared Edison and Kolkata very well. Keep up the good job.

  3. Great post Simran! You used a lot of descriptive words in that post. I have not visited Kolkata in India though. Many people say that it is a very good place. Is it a very good place?

  4. Simran,
    I have never been to India though I was born there. The first year of life was speant there and it wasn't as crystal clear as your memory. Half of my family live in India, I never had the chance to meet them. We often get pictures from them that make me jelous of all the fun they are having. Nice post I really want to go to India now. Your discription is good too. I feel like I've been there.
