In the last one year the cost of food has gone up exponentially in Kolkata. Carrots this winter are selling for rs100 a kg capsicum at rs150 and one medium sized cauliflower is selling for rs50. The good side of it is that entertainment costs have actually come down. A movie in a leading multiplex comes for as low as rs60 to rs120.

India do not want its NRI to return and stay at calcutta. India will not get a lot from these NRI. These people get education in India at a fraction of cost(mainly free) in US/UK. They all are not the top ranker in clas. They came to foreign for their own enjoyment. This is a site not a site alluring NRI to settle back in India in their old age. Thanks Site
