Kolkata, formerly known as Calcutta (Hindi: कलकत्ता, Kalakatta; Bengali: কলিকাতা, Kalikātā), is the capital of West Bengal in India. During the partitioning between India and Pakistan in 1947, Calcutta faced bloodshed as religious groups were divided. Mahatma Gandhi stayed there to mitigate the amount of violence. However, in Mario's Time Machine, everyone in Calcutta was shown to be celebrating India's independence in perfect harmony (excluding one British judge, who only grumbled and complained about Gandhi). As Gandhi and a group of other people are about to fly India's new Flag in honor of their independence, it was stolen by a time-traveling Bowser. Mario later time travels to Calcutta, flag in hand, in an attempt to return the flag to its rightful place. After talking to the inhabitants of Calcutta, Mario can eventually meet with Gandhi and give him the flag. It is quickly flown, and Mario takes his leave.
