A typical Kolkata-style question today.

Sir Stuart Saunders Hogg

Which shopping landmark in one of India’s four original metropolitan cities is named after this man? Additional info: The landmark has seen two blazes – in 1985 and 2011 – and risen from the ashes both times.

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!
