    Hi,

    Kolkata city has a history more than 600 years. As per Kolkata high court Job Charnock is not the founder of the city. The name even mentioned in the rule of Mughal, Maurya & Gupta emperor, and the work of a Bengali poet, Bipradas Pipilai, of the late fifteenth century. There is exsistance of an enciant port named Kalikata in the travel journals of Chinese scholars and Persian merchants.
