Wonders of elevators

On my recent trip to the United States, I had a connecting flight from Dubai airport. In the process of getting to the departure gate, I had to take an elevator, a very fancy one at that, with glass doors with opening both front and back. I got in from the front door and exited from the back door.  This fancy elevator reminded me of the first time I rode an elevator long time back during the 1960s in Kolkata. At the time I was living with my father and attending school there.  One day my father took me to a building where his office was located. It was in Russel Street.  As I remember, at the time I believed, the building belonged to Subarna Shamsher’s family.
