Tracking the tale of the two cities, we find an unique similarity between them i.e the trams. Although, Kolkata & Melbourne used to be the capitals of their respective countries during the raj, the one link with history they continue to share concerns is trams, which they work hard at preserving. During Feb/March 2001, The Calcutta tramways Corporation hit the headlines by organising a tramjatra commemorating the similarity between the two cities in respect to trams. To note, the celebrations started at Esplanade on February 21st 2001. Infact the celebration will be observed during the months of Feb-March at Kolkata & Oct-Nov in Melbourne.
