Santiniketan, A small town 156Kms. from Calcutta,West Bengal is the hometown of the faous laterary Nobel Laureate RabindraNath Tagore, is a cutural hub where you'll find a cool gush of fresh air, great people-all love & peace. Santiniketan houses Viswa Bharati Univ. which is the hub for Fine Arts, Song, Music & other cultural activities, this place is extremely rich in culture & HOLI-the festival of colours is the best bargain over here.

Here in this photograph are my friends 'Pratibha' & 'Anuradha' who are students of 3rd. Yr. B.Fine at Viswa Bharati Univ. & are all smeared in the colours of Holi.
