Kolkata or Calcutta (Bengali: ঘটির বাংলা) is the largest city and the capital of the state of West Bengal. It was once the capital of the British East India Company, but due to the Bengalis' overinflated egos, they let it get way over their heads. So the Brits dumped it for Delhi. But Kolkata, however, prevailed into one of the messiest BEST cities in India!

Not much happened, really. Kolkata was just a swampy mess where Bengalis hung out.
