Just to add that we had around ten days on and off in Kolkata end of 2008 and realy enjoyed our time there,can do a lot just walking and there is a lot to see there, loads of info on the internet.Woud'nt compare it to Delhi.
Had a few days in the Sunderban and was great even if we did not see a tiger! would go there again.
What ever you do enjoy yourself

I liked Kolkata so much that I'll be visiting it again next month. Maybe I'm one of those foreigners who harbour an "odd affection" for the city (Paul Theroux's quote, cited by RPG). You can check out my favourite spots here:

It is hard to summarize, but Kolkata seems (to me at least) a friendly place where you can imbibe the atmosphere. It's a great place for walking and getting lost.

Rabindranath Tagore: "Something undreamt of was lurking everywere, and every day the uppermost question was: where, oh where would I come across it?"

It's less of a tourist trap, (heck a lot of Indians from other parts of the country have never been there!, tho the touts in New Market in particular can be a pain.

V. interesting to read your travelogue, and see Kolkata through a visitor's eyes

If you haven't been in Kolkata before, try once. I can assure you it would be a good experience. The city is worthy of visit once. It has both good and bad things like other indian cities.
