The Barrackpore Trunk Road is no ordinary road. Built in the year 1775, BT Road is one of the oldest metalled roads in India. Once used by the high and mighty of the British Empire to travel from their capital Calcutta (now Kolkata) to Barrackpore (the oldest Indian cantonment of the British), it is not only a preferred educational hub today, but also one of the most exciting, luxurious and modern residential destinations in West Bengal.A number of reasons inspired Siddha, a real-estate development company, to write Reinvention!, a book about BT Road. A living testament of the rich legacy of culture and tradition spanning more than two hundred years, BT Road is also a fantastic representation of the history, changes, reawakening and, most importantly, development of West Bengal. Being prominently involved with the modern development of BT Road, Siddha felt the need to document and highlight this transition in this sumptuous visual treat: The old evolving into the new; sleepy lanes becoming modern residential complexes; and scattered roadside markets giving way to world-class shopping complexes.Reinvention! captures the extraordinary and dramatic transformation of a historical road.
