The human condition can almost be summed up in the observation that, whereas all experiences are of the past, all decisions are about the future.

The tradition is one of iconic crossings across the river Hooghly in the stretch of the river falling within the enlarged Kolkata metro area – Vivekananda bridge (Bally bridge), Rabindar Setu, (Howrah bridge) and Vidyasagar Setu (Second Hooghly bridge). While the mighty river forms the backdrop of the development of the region over centuries, it had also posed a challenge as regards connection to the rest of the country.
