Gallery – Orissa: In the village

Gallery – Orissa: In the village

Orissa, otherwise Odisha is unexpectedly a bit different piece of India … though like the same.

So we are sitting in a land where Jagannath exists.

We got to a seaside hotel, where the eternal sound of waves soothes all children to sleep. In search of a larger apartment for our six, we made a trip to the countryside in the Orissa village. Along the way, we had seen some interesting things, like a bridge on stilts or a party in the village.

An alternative path has proved us to the village of Uttarasarpada, where the dedication of the temple under the banyan took place

Jackfruit – very tasty and aromatic fruit, would be enough for our six for dinner
