Once upon a time this lake was so large that when asked about the depth of the water from the people taking bath in it used to say-"an elephant may get drowned" that was in 1960 but in 2012 January hardly few glasses of polluted water remains as one can see in this photograph.The maharaja of Parlakhemundi, Krushna Chancdra Gajapati who built beautiful lakes and huge ponds,brought narrow gauge train line during 40's are in ruins, neither the people nor the Orissa Government ever care to revive this beautiful place situated at the border of Andhra and Odish. Governors visits so also the CM but Parlakhemundi is in ruins.I spent three years of my childhood during 60's but was disappointing by the callous attitude of the people of that place.It has become a district and Paralakhemundi is the head quarter but alas what has happened to this place?It was a nice place but now it's hot round the year,dirty roads,dilapidated schools and Government college buildings.
