COVID-Cautious Kolkata Ushers In New Year

Kolkata: Revellers took to the streets, but the city hotspots did not witness large crowds on the year’s last day even as the celebration remained tempered and the turnout at most places was far thinner than last year due to a heightened police vigil in the wake of Wednesday’s state advisory urging caution.
While attendance dropped sharply at Alipore zoo, Eco Park, Nicco Park and the Maidan during the day, there was a gradual build-up of revelry on Park Street, which got packed as the evening progressed. Kolkata’s party street, too, however, missed the frenzy that it’s famous for.
Queues were moderately long at Alipore zoo since morning, with a steady stream of visitors. But the crowd was thinner than Christmas.
The Maidan greens remained vacant on Thursday, barring the occasional visitor who chose to party away from the crowd.
Victoria Memorial saw a decent turnout, though lower than in previous years, and a strict police vigil. The police provided assistance to the visitors and kept asking them to maintain social distancing. They even gave masks to those who were not wearing them.
On Park Street, the revelry was tempered with the crowd slowly building up, peaking after 8pm. But unlike Christmas, the road was not clogged before evening. The strict police vigil ensured that there was no traffic disruption.
