If you dislike the rush of Bolpur during Poush Mela and Dol (Holi) Utsav, and could not go after that as you wanted to avoid the blazing heat during summers, monsoon is the time. Bolpur resonances silence, away from the cacophony of Kolkata, probably why the nobel-laureate Tagore chose it to set up Shantiniketan, attracting students from all across the globe. This one will make for a rustic holiday, with the melodious Baul songs combined with the chirping birds. It is about 163 Km from Kolkata. The nearest railways station is in Bolpur.
