Baul Mela 2015 at Jadavpur, Kolkata,India

Baul mela 2015
Last weekend was Baul weekend at Jadvapur, Kolkata. Like every year Baul mela was organized at Shaktigarh, Jadavpur. And like every year it was indeed a treat listening to bauls sing till the wee hours of morning.

Not only was it a musical treat, the mela had a lot of interesting stalls; musical instruments, paintings, fabrics, and delicious food as well!

Among other things, my favourite sweets, pattishapta and hot jalebis were indeed the hot favourites. Definitely the best way to begin the year. Absolutely out of the world!

I am including a Baul song video at the end of this post.

Rahul,

This mela happens in Shaktigarh in Jadavpur, South Kolkata.
Very close to Jadavpur university, some of the landmarks are KPC Medical college, 8B bus stop. Ask anyone, autos or rickshaw walas. You can easily walk it to the Baul mela ground (Shaktigarh) from Jadavpur 8B, there are rickshaws that will take you as well. It is happening this weekend, so you can catch it tomorrow.

Thanks,
Ranjana
