So sad when you see a once lively , vibran dock relegated to what now appearts to be a lay-up haven for ships. Where's all the cranes gone too ? Is there any cargo worked up river these days or is it all centered on Haldia ?
From what I saw there is still some cargo worked in Calcutta but as you say, nothing like the old days. We later stayed at the mouth of the Hooghly, near Diamond Head and saw many ships going in and out of the river, but where they went, not sure.
