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.
