Here are the top 4 reasons why Kalkatta, the latest fiction by Kunal Basu, published in Nov 2015, is the worst book cover ever and an insult to the city of Kolkata.

  1. The distortion of Kolkata is far too obvious to ignore.
  2. To misspell Kolkata & represent it with the half-man & half-dog is a deliberate act of provocation.
  3. To get attention of people by hurting their sentiments is bad business ethics.
  4. The logic of Kolkata sounding like kutta is sick. Can the author / publisher dare make such obvious comparisons with London, Berlin & Paris and use cuss words.
