Title: Soya Sauce and Garam Masala: Tales from a Chinese Community in Calcutta, India.

Description: When the Chinese immigrated to Calcutta from China in the 1920s,

they brought their language, beliefs and way of life with them. Within three

decades, a distinct culture prospered in the Chinatown of Calcutta, a culture that

was Chinese, and at the same time, Indian. The Calcutta Chinatown declined after

1962 Sino-Indian Border War. In this presentation, Kwai Li will guide us on a tour

of Calcutta Chinatown that no longer exists.
