Kolkatta is slightly better off then Mumbai in terms of congestion and infrastructure. Yup it is as urban as Mumbai but it is Mumbai which is easily recognisable as the lean and cosmopolitan hub of India. Also Mumbai is very very safe for women much more than Kolkatta and way way way ahead of New Delhi. Besides Mumbai is a true growth engine with many more opportunites than Kolkatta. Kolkatta may have had its days of glory in the past but it has lost the race to modern globalization. Maybe it can pick up a lesson or two from Mumbai both in terms of social fabric and economic growth

Kolkata is Kolkata.
What all you said about Kolkata are beyond dispute.
Kolkata is a city of 'bhalobasha'.
