                                     A WORLD CUP RECORD OF 215.CONGRATULATIONS.


A red Tamala has started flowing as the summer approaches.There is another variety in blue colour.My wife takes care of all the flowering pot plants in our house.She has inherited the love for animals and flowers from her father where as her next generation are more interested in internet and non vegetarian food.Their mornings starts with flesh and ends with flesh.

Bhutesh Panigrahi never advertised himself nor spoke about his own achievement in life.A very down to earth practical person.He has left behind his adorable wife Sakuntala ,two brillents sons and a highly talented daughter.His next generation has picked up the baton where Bhutesh babu left it.We wish his soul to rest in peace.Front row first person on the right is Mr.Bhutesh Prasad Panigrahi.From the names of his sons Parthasarathi,Sabyasachi and daughterTanutrushna. one can imagine how much he loved Indian culture.He was my brother in law.

Two small rivers called Sankha on the left and Koel on the right merge their own identity and form the river Brahmani which one can watch with two different colored water flowing in it.Some say another small river Saraswati too merges at some place.This place is situated at 12 Kilometers from Rourkela Steel city and is known as Vedavyas.A huge mela takes place during Siva Ratri.A scenic place.Every year few young people get drowned inspite of a huge sign board telling them not to take bath at that place due to quick sand and under current.Photograph by Sanjoy.
