Chitpur Jatra Para !

Like many other shows-Jatras too are waiting for the final nail

in the coffin.It was once patronized by the Rajbaris of North

Calcutta & elsewhere and gained popularity among the towns

and villages of Bengal.

The Chitpur Jatra para in North Calcutta have seen better days.

Later artists like Shanti Gopal & other extremely bright personalities

made the Natta Companies prosper & reach a certain peak.

The big placards and buzz in that area seems to be diminishing and

with it -we are fast losing a long cherished tradition.The Natta Co-

mpanies figure came down from 140 to around 30 within ten years !
