We want to go to West Bengal

"The bazaars of Canning were [...] a jumble of narrow lanes, cramped shops and mildewed houses. There were a great many stalls selling patent medicines for neuralgia and dyspepsia - concoctions with names like 'Hajmozyne' and 'Dardacytin'.
The only buildings of any note were the cinema halls; immense in their ungainly solidity, they sat upon the town like sandbags, as though as to prevent it from being washed away."

Ghosh, Amitav: "The hungry tide", London 2005, S.24.
