PARTIAL OBITUARY- MY DAD’S  STORY

A month back on 22nd June, 2014, I frantically watched the news flash blood soaked images of my father.

Khatti — Odisha’s way of socialising

Every trip to Bhubaneswar is a reminder of how much the place has changed. Bhubaneswar’s position in the growth curve implies a greater change than developed places.
