The new road (by pass) that takes you by the outskirts of Bolpur town (saving 3 kms and 20 mins of traffic) straight over the newly constructed flyover is real good. last time when I had passed this road , the construction work was going on and I had to waste 45 mins to go there. This road is called Bolpur-siuri road, excellent condition through the countryside of Birbhum district and connects NH 60 at Siuri, via Purandarpur. Since I am on diet I take my food in time. So, 9 AM it was and time for break fast. Mom had motion sick ness , we had to stop few times. I stopped at village eatery , where they had benches made of Bamboo. They were clean, early morning utensils were washed properly. I saw they were frying potato pakora (alur chop), my mouth started watering, Freshly cooked Ghugnee. and boiled eggs. I do not take potato. since we will be tasting all the items "Begunee" (brinjal pakora) for me
. They fished the potato out of the ghugnee for me, Begunee and Muri (puffed rice) for me and half boiled eggs as spread over the breads , which came just after. Tasted food cooked with wood and coal fire. it tasted different. Nice , good are just simple words. forgot we have to go miles. Wasted full 45 mins there.
Jadavpur- Shaktigarh - 102 Km (NH2 - two toll plaza, Dankuni and Palsit).
Shaktigarh - Nababhat - 18 Km

Tilpara Barage or Dam still had water in their storage , but the road till Rampurhat is fantastic. Usually I do not drive very fast, my average speed is between 80-100. and my Bolero was just awesome. Rampurhat to Nalhati is terrible. Oranges were just coming at that time in the market. Bought few from rampurhat and we went again. The BP dhaba at More gram was a quick stop for us. we had chay (tea) there.
Siuri to More gram - 90 KM
From Moregram NH34 Started. Did not know that the toll started there.
The road of Farakka is a mess
