Test for some, fun for the rest

Written by: Staff

Kolkata, Apr 27 (UNI) While the political parties and poll pundits were racking their brains over the third phase of polling in West Bengal, it was simply a holiday for many.

While people were seen riding ponnies and even enjoying a buggy-ride around Victoria Memorial here, there were others who had scheduled cricket matches for the day. One Ravi Kumar said, ''It's a holiday for us. We are in class 12 and have planned a cricket match.'' For an elderly gentleman, a calm and quiet city and a walk around the greens was the best way to utilise the day.

Deserted roads and occasional wheezing past of a police vehicle or a press car gave a picture of a public holiday.

Meanwhile, in many areas, people arranged community kitchens to spend the day together in fun and frolic.
