Sea Bass seems to be very popular, most loved and favoured fish among the sea food lovers. But to us (read Bongs, few Bengalis don’t like this term) any fish that can not adapt well to the waters condiments of  Kolkata can not survive on a Bengali fish platter.

  • Before you start forming your opinions on today’s blog headline, let me stop you right there in your thought track … I know “fish hunting” is not the right word, but I could not find more appropriate word to tell you the story of my misadventures … Fish cannot live without water. A Bong can not live without fish. So what happens when a Bong arrives in a “phoreighn” land ? Arriving in a foreign country  in the early hours of morning is a bad idea. Unlike […]
