Google WiFi at Rail Stations Gets a Brandname : Google Station


Partnered with Indian Railway's own telecom arm- RailWire, Google had launched free WiFi services in Indian Railway stations across the country back in January of 2016. I posted a review of this free WiFi services at Sealdah rail station - read here. The deal between RailTel corp, the mother of RailWire brand and Google Inc. was signed in September 2015 with a target to reach 400 railway stations, equipped with WiFi. In January 2016 Mumbai Central became first station in India to have Google WiFi.

Kabab Gully of Calcutta at Zakaria Street and Phears Lane


Ramzan is just ended, and the zeal over Kolkata's Kebab street Zakaria street is growing year by year. This is 4th July of 2017 and we had Ramzan on 25-26th June. During the Ramzan days I had a visit into Zakaria St. without any homework. I just googled it and visited the damn place - directly through the Nakhoda Masjid's gate on Central Avenue, opposite to Md. Ali Park. I just went straight and soon met the crowd of Ramzan, the narrower street by the middle-of-the-road stalls across the Zakaria st, till the road ended at Rabindra Sarani and Nakhoda Masjid crossing.
