Sarsuna is a neighbourhood in South West Kolkata. Part of the greater Behala region it is reachable through Chowrasta or through the narrow lanes of Barisha. It is a predominantly Bengali neighborhood, though its fast becoming a cosmopolitan place. It is bordered by Barisha in the east and Shakuntala Park to the west.

History[edit]

Basically it is an area that was extremely rural prior to the 1972 Bangladesh war. During the war, the Indian government dumped scores of refugees from Bangladesh in this underdeveloped locality close to Kolkata. These refugees are now legalised Indian citizens and form the bulk of the population in Sarsuna. Now it is under devolop.
