Here is your short paragraph on my city Kolkata:
I am Sujata Chakraborthy. I live in a beautiful ancient city known as Kolkata. It is the capital of West Bengal. It is the 2nd largest city & 4th metropolitan cities of our country. It is also known as the city of joy due to its diversity & wonders.
I love my city very much and I am proud to be a part of it. It is full of life.
The city was named as “Calcutta” until 2001 but later it was named as “Kolkata” due to its Bengali pronunciation. This city was made by the British Empire. The name Kolkata represents “Kalik khetro” which is a village. Kalik khetro means the land of Goddess Kali. Comparing other cities in India Kolkata was the 1st city to offer underground services.
