Unfortunately this is the only photo Ginsberg snapped at the coffee house where he & Peter spent hours talking poetry with among others the Krittbas writers Sunil Ganguly, Shakti Chattopadhyay and Sarat Kumar Mukhopadhyay during the summer of 1962. In commemorating the 50th aniversary, The Calcutta Telegraph give us a little background and history to this Bengali literary landmark & institution.
