A book on the transformation of Calcutta to Kolkata from the British era to the modern times was formally released by West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi here at the Raj Bhavan.
The book, 'Calcutta Then, Kolkata Now', has been penned by authors Sunanda K. Datta-Ray, Indrajit Hazra along with photo editors Pramod Kapoor and Anshika Varma.
The part 'Calcutta Then' has rare photographs on the making of the Howrah Bridge, images of Victoria Memorial, while "Kolkata Now" lists modern day life in the metropolis.
"The authors have done a commendable job of documenting the rich heritage of Kolkata. They say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and in keeping with this adage, Roli Books has especially unearthed rare photographs, priceless images of the era gone by with the city of the present day," Tripathi had said during the launch.
The book was released by Tripathi on Wednesday in the presence of former Nagaland Governor Shyamal Datta at a function attended by the authors and photo editors.
