Apart from the intense heat and power cuts (8 of them in 2 days!) that left us drained, Shantiniketan was a pretty interesting if low key place. I got to learn a lot more about Tagore (who is the total Bengal hero of heroes), and visit the university he founded and generally take in the bucolic surroundings of the area, and sweat like a pig, and sweat like a pig. Returning to Kolkata the climate seems downright cool and pleasant.
