Follow Talwar Talks for a nostalgic ride through Kolkata’s culture
Kolkata/IBNS: Step back in time to know about Kolkata’s past, the city’s culture and the icons, through ‘Talwar Talks’, a nostalgia driven programme on digital media (Facebook and Instagram).
Conceptualised and hosted by model and actor Arun Talwar, you will hear him talk about the Yellow Cab of Kolkata, the Dalhousie Office Paara, the Majestic Maidan, and the Rajbaris.
Through the World Heritage Week, some of the episodes that are being covered include Music of Bengal, the Hand Pulled Rickshaw, the Indian Marriage Band, Kites and of course Football.
“My biggest achievements are the opportunities that gave me a chance to work with some great directors and actors and explore exciting destinations,” said Talwar.
“I have always been an ardent lover of the Bengali art, culture, movies and of course food. I am an artist who romances with the soil of Kolkata, Bengal and loves the air and water like a true Bengali. I would dare not call myself a historian nor a blogger; my aim is to selflessly and relentlessly promote 'Amar Shohor' Kolkata all over India and eventually to the rest of the world,” he said.
Talwar said he chose Hindi as the medium of communication as it is widely accepted all over the country.
Future plans include presenting West Bengal as well as exploring heritage cities like Varanasi, Jaipur and Amritsar.
