Its almost 3 months I have shifted here from Delhi.
Have not learnt the local language Odiya, except few words.
Love local sweet dish Chena Pod(Milk cake), fish and people, who are intelligent but remain simple!
City is by and large clean but poverty is seen in every street and in every temple, which is available at every 200 metres! Best thing about many of these temples is affordable food; Rs. 30-40 for a full plate of rice, dalma(Pulse + Vegetable), another vegetable and may be a piece of sweet!
Politically people are conscious and know about AAP. In last LS election, 5 lakhs voters of Orissa opted AAP.
Will add more information later!
