About The Event

From Afghanistan to Hong Kong, the eastern wing of the British Empire was head quartered right here in Cal. The very heart of this was Dalhousie Square - from the nerve centre at Writer's, to the financial centre at the Currency Building, the gigantic rail wing was controlled from the Eastern Railways HQ, the Governor General lived at Raj Bhawan, the main church was St. John's, the drinking water supply was Lal Dighi.
