As the client and the onsite team members celebrated Thanksgiving in the US, the project team in Kolkata had their day-out at Raichak this Friday. Raichak is a weekend getaway around 50 kilometers south of Kolkata on the bank of river Ganges. The Ganges has become very wide here as it races to meet the Bay of Bengal just few kilometers away. The place is full of beautiful bungalows with large decorated lawns. The Radisson Fort (also called Ffort) is the most attractive resort at Raichak.
The bus route and boarding timings were mailed to us the previous evening. But as normally happens, the bus started more than half an hour late in the morning, jeopardizing to some extent the pick-ups of the people down the route. However, we later made up some of the delays and were on the way to Raichak, all set.
