Arun Talwar, the creator and anchor for Talwar Talks revisits Nakhuda Masjid on Eid
Arun Talwar, the creator and anchor for Talwar Talks, has been coming up with a plethora of interesting stories on various facets of the city of Kolkata on social media through live videos and engaging narratives that makes his posts different and memorable. Here is a new episode on Nakhuda Masjid released on the occasion of Eid. It is available on his Instagram and Facebook pages. This is an attempt by him to highlight the area and lifestyle of those living near the heritage monument. Nakhuda Masjid is a heritage mosque, which adds to the nostalgia of Chitpore, a very old locality within the city mostly inhabited by the Muslim community.
For most Kolkattans, the name Chitpore brings memories of the delicious and aromatic Mughlai cuisine and the fragrance of Attar floating on the streets. The essence of this area has been beautifully captured and presented in his current episode of the web series Sheher-e-Kolkata. During Ramadan, the streets of Chitpore comes alive and there is an air of celebration everywhere. It is a must-visit destination for all foodies and shop-a-holics from various parts of the city.
Through Talwar Talks, Arun in the past has always spoken to the locals in a particular area and that forms the basis of the constructive and positive interactions between Talwar Talks and people from different religious tradition, spiritual beliefs or just the man on the streets. He has always been vociferous about the repair, restoration and social awareness of old heritage structures and has been appealing to corporates and individuals time and again to come forward in whatever capacity to help with the livelihood and employment of people who are jobless in these times and live around the heritage sites.
Arun’s meeting with Md.Zahid Ahmed, (Trustee) Cutchi Memon Jammat, was one of bonhomie and goodwill. He said in his interview that he would spend his entire life in the devotion of the Almighty and in the maintenance of the heritage mosque so that it can be preserved for future generations to pray, witness and experience the mosque as well as the way of life in Chitpore.
