Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

#कोलकाता ने अपनी माटी,तहज़ीब,हरियाली,को आज भी नहीं खोया है। हरियाली जिंदा है । हर अपार्टमेंट में ठीक ठाक जगह है। झूले लगे है। बिजली जी नहीं जाती है। बस,मेट्रो,रेल, ट्राम का भाड़ा बहुत ही कम है। डीजल ,पेट्रोल महंगा होने के बाद भी।
कोलकाता के महानगरीय चरित के साथ प्रवासी भी बहुत हैं जो यहां की धारा में समाहित हो गए। फिर भी बंगालियत ज़िंदा है।

Just down the road from St James’s Church on Lower Circular Road (now AJC Bose Road) is the Lower Circular Road Cemetery, also known as the Mullick Bazaar Cemetery. While this isn’t as well-known as some of Kolkata’s other cemeteries, it’s still an interesting one. I visited this because it’s our family cemetery on the distaff side, with my maternal grandparents and several other ancestors buried in the family plot.

Established in 1840, the Lower Circular Road Cemetery is a sprawling one, with graves and tombs from across the decades. There are lots of very recent graves, many of them obviously still well-tended and carefully looked after, with flowering plants around them. There are also (and these tend to be the more interesting for me) lots of very old graves, some dating back to almost when the cemetery was established. These include the graves of some of Kolkata’s most illustrious names, including John Elliott Drinkwater Bethune (the promoter of women’s education in India), poet and dramatist Michael Madhusudan Dutt, nationalist and politician Harendra Coomar Mookerjee, and missionary/social reformer Charles Freer ‘Deenbandhu’ Andrews.

The most interesting grave, though, is of William Hay MacNaghten, a baronet who was the British envoy in Kabul and who was assassinated brutally in 1841, his body reputedly being chopped to bits. MacNaghten’s wife brought the dismembered body of her husband together and had it buried here, just inside the gate of the cemetery. The tomb she erected over the grave has a symbol of death, an urn with a draped cloth over it, and a plaque dedicated to MacNaghten. Interestingly enough, there’s a popular belief that this place is haunted, and that if anyone recounts the story of MacNaghten’s death in the vicinity of his grave, the tree above his tomb starts to shake.

Well, my sister (who’s a historian) did happen to tell me about MacNaghten right next to his grave, and the tree was perfectly still.

But yes, whether or not you’re interested in paranormal activities, this cemetery is worth visiting. Even if only to wander around under the huge mango trees, look at the older graves, and admire the evidence of the coming together of Kolkata’s ethnic communities: there are typically Bengali names among the graves, and very English ones, too, besides the proof of what is probably India’s best-known China Town. A couple of the gateways along the main path have a distinctly Chinese look to them, not to mention some just as distinctly Chinese names painted on them.

The cemetery is open to visitors from 10AM to 5PM.

Kolkata, which arguably is the favourite resting place for Europeans in the country, boasts a decent number of burial grounds.
The lower circular Road Cemetery is still in use and the front part of the grounds are relatively clear and well kept

There are a number of graves of historic persons here like Michael Madhusudan Dutt. The Cemetery is not well maintained and and it would be good if the same interest that was shown in restoring South Park Street Cemetery [which is wonderful] could now be shown in the Lower Circular Road Cemetery.

While I'm biased as I have several relatives here, the gravestones alone are worth the visit. Families wiped out by infectious diseases and assassinations, and superb architecture. It's a shame so many are in disrepair, but lots of peace here.

This cemetery is a huge one and as of now new burials take place. The cemeteries of Michael Madhusudan Dutta, the famous Bengali poet and that of John Drinkwater Bethune, the champion of education for women are easily identified by appropriate gate/signboard in the path. Some of the the graves lie uncared for and as a whole the place is not very well kept.

The only reason to visit this site is to pay homage to the great poet Michael Madhushudhans grave. This one time rebel anglophile turned social reformer had a great role to play in Bengal cultural history. A must see for all kolkata visitors.
