Went on a weeklong tour with ma and baba to Odisha for partly work and part pleasure. Liked Rambha and Gopalpur on Sea in particular. Realised not for the first time that Bengal and Odisha have much in common, the trip only reaffirmed my faith. (Good food helps decide !)
I may well have to become a resident of Odisha, as we know it today, but in ways more than it will remain a second home for me no matter where I decide to stay for the next few years of my life.
